Artificial intelligence (AI) and email security were analyzed in a recent report by IRONSCALES. According to the report, the threat of email attacks generated by AI is growing year over year and is projected to increase exponentially. Over 74% of respondents have already experienced an increase in the use of AI by cybercriminals in the past six months, and over 85% believe that AI will be used to circumvent their existing email security technologies.

Seventy-seven percent of organizations now consider email security a top 3 priority for their organization. 9 out of ten organizations have implemented an AI-enabled email security solution beyond what is offered by their cloud email provider. 

Forty-two percent of organizations are maintaining their previous detection standards and 35% experiencing an improvement beyond their earlier baseline.
