Nearly all cyberattacks leverage email. That’s because email is always on, it’s a trusted communication channel between organizations, it carries links and attachments, and it’s easily impersonated. As such, it’s a cheap, simple, and highly effective tool for bad actors who want to gain control over an organization’s IT assets, access and steal confidential information, or disrupt business operations. Historically, email security has been provided by a secure email gateway, a classic email perimeter strategy to keep bad emails from making their way to corporate mailboxes. Changes in the threat landscape require that the strategy must extend beyond this traditional perimeter-orientated defense to one that is multi-zoned and integrated with a company’s overall security systems. Mimecast’s Email Security 3.0 strategy helps IT and security professionals achieve a new and more comprehensive form of protection against email attacks by advancing from perimeter email security to a comprehensive, more pervasive discipline. Our approach addresses threats in three distinct zones: at the email perimeter, inside the network and the organization, and beyond the perimeter. Our cloud-based platform is comprised of integrated service components like data processing, scanning and detection, machine learning, data storage, and policy enforcement. We’ve wrapped our platform with connectors and APIs to help organizations capitalize on threat intelligence to build stronger overall security systems. Mimecast will continue to incrementally build capabilities and integrate and connect with other security investments to defend organizations against email born attacks, fraudulent brand activity, and compliance challenges. We are committed to continuously making things easier and more cost effective for our more than 36,000 customers around the world.
