Reasons Why Companies Need a Gmail Whitelist
Whitelisting is an excellent technique to help content and software run smoothly without them having to ask permission to run. Only those items that are whitelisted can be run, and everything else is restricted or denied. It can be applied to applications, email accounts and more.
At Comodo, we understand the necessity of a Gmail whitelist and other whitelists. We provide our software to make it easier to determine if something is trusted and if it should be run. As a company, you need to ensure that inappropriate or dangerous software/apps are not allowed to run and cause problems.
Why Whitelisting is Necessary
There are three primary reasons that whitelisting is necessary, which include:
- Stability for the system
- Compliance Issues
Hackers and malware have become more sophisticated and can usually get around traditional security controls. A whitelist provides you protection because it only allows certain contacts to show up in the inbox. All the others can go to the spam folder. Many times, companies prefer to use an open-source email option because it allows for freedom and can offer many options. It can also be cost-effective, especially if you have many employees and must pay per email address with the ISP.
Your system will also be more stable by using whitelists because the emails are placed in a separate folder. Most malware and phishing occur when the email or attachment is opened. If the mail goes to a different folder and isn’t opened, it can’t do any damage.
Before employees can use Gmail and other things on company computers (or their personal devices while on company property), they must promise to stay compliant with rules. Our product can help ensure that they do, so Contact us today to learn more about our whitelist options.
