than 50 percent of spam messages originating in North America.

Appriver released results yesterday from the Q2 Global Security Report, a summary and analysis of spam and malware. AppRiver quarantined 4.7 billion spam messages between April and June 2015, and blocked 165 million messages containing attachments with viruses.

“It is more important than ever for companies to educate their staff on the seriousness of the breach problem, because hackers don’t announce themselves, but rather they attempt to work in darkness to minimize detection ultimately maximizing the size and scope of their breach,” said Fred Touchette, senior security analyst, AppRiver.

The full report, available here, details current malware trends, discusses Q2 breaches and reminds all who use email of the importance of effective security measures.
