E-mail Hacking Averted Through Online Fax

With recent e-mail hacking scandals from GMail, Yahoo and HotMail, many are looking for more secure ways to send and receive documents. But few could have anticipated that the answer was through a technology that has existed for years. Online Fax offers an extra layer of security while working within your existing e-mail server that can protect you from hackers, spammers and junk faxes that plague modern offices.

On June 3, Google announced that hundreds of e-mails, including those of government officials and prominent journalists had been hacked. These GMail users fell victim to Phishing, a new kind of e-mail infiltration where hackers create an e-mail form that looks as if it is from a trusted source like your bank or doctor's office. The form asks for personal information like e-mail addresses, account numbers, and phone numbers. Once you have entered the information, you are told to click a link. That link sends the information into the wrong hands. This type of scam has infiltrated the top e-mail servers in the world, as well as some of its biggest corporations.

But with Online Fax, you can send a fax over the Internet, giving your customers peace of mind when opening any transmissions. You can also receive all messages through the online fax service so you don't ever face the perils of a phishing scam.

If your e-mail is hacked, Online Fax ensures that you're communications are delivered while you put your e-mail account in order. When CitiGroup's credit card department was hacked in late may, causing the infiltration of over 360,000 credit card accounts, Citi notified state governments using fax transmissions to avoid further complications. These safe, direct transmissions ensure that you won't run into any trouble.
