Email Security Overview

Comprehensive protection. Simplified in the cloud.

Mimecast provides an always-on, cloud-based email security solution that reduces the complexity of protecting your organization from malware, spam and data leakage. Our service delivers robust 100% anti-virus and 99% anti-spam service levels, with 0.0001% spam false positives. An advanced mail transfer agent (MTA) acts as your email bridgehead in the cloud, stopping known and emerging email borne threats before they reach your network.

Flexible and granular controls enable administrators to protect against inbound threats, including phishing, spear-phishing and denial of service attacks, and prevent sensitive and secure content from leaving your organization. Organization-wide security policies are managed from a single interface and can be applied with immediate effect, enabling a faster response to rapidly evolving situations. We also enable end users to self-serve via Outlook, a native Mac app, browser and mobile apps, for actions including quarantine management and blocked senders, helping improve their productivity and reduce the burden on IT.

Mimecast’s unique approach to email security starts with our service platform, which provides a zero drag pass-through Secure Email Gateway service as a foundation to build a tailored protection suite for your organization. Additional features and services can further enhance security and control; including Targeted Threat Protection, Data Leak Prevention, Email Encryption, Content Controls and even Large File Send tools.
