Protect your organisation from spam, malware, and data leakage
Email is the most used application by both organisation’s and cybercriminals, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonation attacks, and the spread of internal cyber threats to your organisation. Methods of attack are changing rapidly and growing to be more sophisticated, targeted, and dangerous. Right now, the industry is faced with email-born threats such as phishing attacks delivering malicious URLs and attachments. Impersonation attacks sustained by social engineering are aimed at fooling employees. Ransomware attacks can encrypt your data and take entire systems offline.

From Perimeter to Pervasive
Zone 1 – At your Email Perimeter
Attackers are sending SPAM and viruses in emails and embedding URLs into them to attempt phishing and spear-phishing attacks. They can also introduce types of malware that organisations are unable to detect with signatures and classic antivirus technologies. Securing email is one of the most important steps an organisation should take to reduce risk and keep disruption to a minimum.
Zone 2 – Inside your Network & Organisation
Even if you have a strong email security perimeter in place attackers can sidestep defences and work inside your network. They can do this by using adjusting accounts or social engineering to send awful things inside and out. Employees can be encouraged to clicking on links, opening attachments, and even falling for scams. Human error can be a factor in the most successful attacks.
Zone 3 – Beyond your Perimeter
It is quite easy for attackers to impersonate a company’s brand on the internet, without challenging an organisations email security perimeter. Attackers can register a similar brand domain or host a website designed to trick customers, employees and partners. Ultimately this can shatter the value and trust built within the brand which may have taken years to build.
Mimecast integrated within your workplace ecosystem will defend against email-born attacks, fraudulent brand activity and compliance challenges, which makes things easier and more cost-effective for you.
