Email security, a rising market

Credential theft has become one of the greatest risks faced by organizations, which makes email security, as one of the main entry routes for cyberattacks, crucial.

Until not long ago, cybercriminals focused their threats on the direct theft of money. However, the trend has evolved towards obtaining credentials that open the doors to data and systems that can bring them more benefits.

For example, credential theft to access confidential systems and databases with which they can seize, encrypt and demand a high financial ransom in exchange for their restitution. That is, to carry out the popular ransomware attacks.

To protect against these ever-evolving threats, businesses need layers of protection within their IT stack. It should not be forgotten that, once an organization’s internal systems are accessed with email as an attack vector, recovery can later involve a large financial outlay.

Organizations are betting on the implementation of preventive solutions, instead of adopting reactive strategies once the attack happens

For this reason, organizations are increasingly betting on the implementation of preventive solutions, instead of adopting reactive strategies once the attack happens. This, together with the growing awareness of the need to take security measures, is leading to an increasing investment in solutions that guarantee email protection.

And the IT channel has a huge opportunity to seize in this arena.

The growing investment in email protection

The increasing risks to which email is exposed is confirming the need for organizations to invest more and more in its security. This is generating a growing business around the solutions that come to guarantee your protection.

The email security market will reach $11.3 billion by 2030

According to the data handled by Market Research Future, the forecast is that the email security market reach $11.3 billion by 2030. This will imply a compound annual growth (CAGR) of 30% over the period 2020-2030, with North America as the region that will lead this growth.

The increase in the number of cyberthreats and *text muted*, as well as the increasing adoption of BYODwhich allows the use of personal devices for the development of corporate tasks, will be some of the main factors that will drive the growth of this market segment.

However, it is not enough to just invest money in an email security solution. Its correct management is as important or more important than its purchase. That is why it is essential to carry out a correct configuration adapted to the needs of each company.


Here, access and identity management will play a key role, so when IT or cybersecurity departments do not have the capacity to carry it out, relying on trusted partners to free organizations from these tasks will be beneficial for both parties.

Likewise, companies must begin to think about the importance of implementing multiple factor authentication and a focus Zero Trustor zero trust, granting access only to those who really need it, and when they need it, it will be key.

Properly classifying data will allow you to quickly identify potential breaches and tackle them so that they cause as little damage as possible. Actively minimizing risk requires professionals who properly manage it. This will require specialized talent, often in short supply, opening up great opportunities for specialized partners.

To this is also added the strong impulse that the capabilities of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)and the popularization of intelligent chatbots like ChatGPT that cybercriminals are already beginning to use for malicious purposes.

Although cybersecurity companies have been using AI for many years in their developments and when it comes to combating cyberthreats, it is now with the use of generative AI in the field of cybersecurity that it is experiencing great development.

The possibilities in this field are enormous, which is why the business behind the much-needed email security will continue to experience notable growth in the coming years.

Test winner headphones: These ANC headphones beat even Sony from the throne

The most important things at a glance:

  • The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless is our current test winner among Bluetooth headphones
  • You are currently getting the model for 268.21 euros at Amazon
  • Below you will find an excerpt from our best list of Bluetooth headphones
At the time of writing, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 is no longer our number one noise-cancelling headphone. The Sony headphones were beaten by the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless.

The Momentum 4 Wireless convinces with a great, clear sound with a rich bass. As a reward, there is the top grade of 1.2, with which the Sennheiser model beats the former test winner in terms of sound. The excellent active noise suppression was also a lot of fun in the practical test. In our stress test scenario (simulated aircraft noise), the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless attenuated very effectively for us. There is further praise for the excellent battery life: With the highest ANC strength, the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless ran for a whopping 53 hours in our test scenario – a very strong performance. Although some headphones run longer without ANC, since the external signal processing cannot be deactivated with the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless, we were not able to test this here.

A few small things bothered, for example, the ear cups can only be rotated, but not folded. But that’s complaining on a high level.

Time change from Saturday to Sunday: Drivers now face a very special danger

The ADAC advises drivers to drive with foresight and be more aware of the dangers in order to avoid serious accidents involving wildlife. This applies in particular to forest sections and roadside field edges. In purely temporal terms, the evening and early morning hours during twilight are particularly dangerous. So foot off the gas and always be ready to brake.

An additional helper is the free Wildwarner app, which is available for Android and iOS. The uses acoustic signals to draw your attention to particular danger spots. The best way to do this is to connect the app to your car via Bluetooth and receive the information via the built-in music system. You do not have to operate the app itself while driving.

Wildwarner covers Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Hunters and drivers can optionally register and actively report danger spots themselves. If you already see wild animals on the side of the road, reduce your speed further and switch off the high beam. Horns can be used to scare away wild animals.

If you want, you can also report an accident with wildlife or a dead animal along the route in the animal find register. This is a database that systematically records animals nationwide.

The end of “John Wick 4” explained: what comes after the action hit?

The end of “John Wick 4” probably came as a surprise to most fans. The ex-killer wins the duel against the nasty Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård) and is thus released from all duties to the Hohen Hammer. Unfortunately, he was badly injured in the shootout with his former friend and current antagonist Caine (Donnie Yen). And so, with everything settled, John Wick, bleeding heavily, sits on the steps below the Sacre Ceour Cathedral, looks up at the beautiful suns and thinks of his late wife Helen (Bridget Moynahan) before he falls dead himself. In the next scene, Winston (Ian McShane) and the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) stand in front of the former hitman’s grave and wonder whether he has ended up in heaven or hell.

So John Wick really does appear to be dead. And that, although it was said for a long time that there would be a fifth part. But as director Chad Stahelski has now revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, he and Keanu Reeves have only just finished the “John Wick” series. Nevertheless, they are not averse to further sequels. Unfortunately, ambiguous statements like these are standard in Hollywood. After all, you don’t want to obstruct the future of a franchise. But with Chad Stahelski’s announcement, you can be pretty sure that we won’t see a “John Wick” movie in the near future.

The post-credit sequence in the fourth part is all the more irritating. Because we see Donnie Yen’s character Caine again, how he visits his daughter. But before he can reach her, Akira (Rina Sawayama) suddenly appears. She probably wants revenge on Caine for killing her father. But before that happens, the film ends. Now, of course, one can speculate: is the scene just there to bring Caine and Akira’s stories to an end? Or is it even the cornerstone for a spin-off? An offshoot has already been confirmed that expands the “John Wick” universe.
