New-Age Authentication for Open Source E-mail Solution- Zimbra

Emails are a crucial repository of sensitive and confidential data. In any organization, e-mails run the highest risk of password cracking and data breaches. E-mail authentication is often taken lightly, which consequently leads to huge losses and severe damage to the organization. More than 90% user-generated passwords are vulnerable to hacking. 75% hacking attacks in 2015 leveraged weak passwords. Studies have well established the hazards of an only password protected email repository and the compromising nature of the same. With the rise in phishing and social engineering techniques, even a hard-to-crack password is not enough to combat the risk of email breach. Hackers are increasingly targeting mails to carry out insider trading, corporate espionage, stealing financial quotes, breach of valuable HR data and so on and so forth.
