Threat Protection

The Challenges

Traditional email security controls or relying on your cloud email provider won’t protect you from today’s more targeted and sophisticated threats. You must continuously work to improve security protections to defend against known threats such as spear‐phishing, ransomware, impersonation attacks, malware, as well as threats moving laterally in your organization.  Organizations also suffer from an inability to address data leaks that are caused by careless or malicious insiders who are sending sensitive data and other intellectual property where they shouldn’t.

Mimecast Solution

Before an inbound email ever makes it to your organization’s email system, whether it is on‐premises or in the cloud, Mimecast provides a deep inspection system to detect the ways phishers and spammers try to access and fool your email security system and your users.

 As part of a cyber resilience for email strategy, the Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection service provides:

  • DNS Authentication
  • IP & Domain reputation checks
  • Spam scanning
  • Impersonation protection
  • Attachment protection
  • URL protection
  • Internal threat protection

The analytics and threat intelligence that make up these services are constantly evaluated and updated by the Mimecast Security Operations Center (MSOC). The MSOC is a team of globally distributed analysts and security researchers that manage the Mimecast security service on a 24/7 basis.

Cyber-attackers are continually evolving and adapting, and the risks increase every day. Organizations can no longer rely on a defense-only strategy to keep them safe. They need a plan to keep email flowing in the event of an attack and the ability to recover lost or locked data quickly after an attack.
