Mimecast brand protection solutions proactively uncover threats that are attempting to deceive your employees, customers and partners.
With brand impersonation attacks on the rise, brand protection solutions have become a business-critical part of the IT security stack. Attackers are increasingly using website spoofing and other forms of deception to gain access to networks and devices, allowing them to steal data, identities and money while ruining corporate reputations. And because these activities happen beyond your security perimeter, traditional security technologies are largely ineffective at defending against these attacks.
Mimecast Brand Exploit Protect enables you to shift from playing defense to playing offense against brand impersonation. Mimecast's innovative service combines machine learning and quadrillions of targeted scans to identify known and unknown attack patterns, stopping compromised assets at the earliest preparation stages before they become live attacks.
Customers, business partners, employees, and others can easily fall victim to phishing attacks that impersonate your brand. These threats pose a significant risk to cybersecurity, accounting for a significant portion of cybercrime today.
Brand impersonation is made easier for criminals by our increasing reliance on the digital economy. Organizations use online channels to reach and serve both business and consumer customers. Email and social media have become dominant forms of communication. And many customers and partners interact with a company primarily through its online presence.
In this environment, it's easy for an attacker to register a domain that closely resembles yours and to set up a fake website that is almost indistinguishable from yours. Then, using highly effective targeted phishing techniques, attackers can lure employees, customers and partners to this cloned site and prompt them to divulge credentials, reveal personal information or take actions that enable malware to be downloaded to their computers.
Superior gateway solutions may help to protect employees by preventing them from visiting suspicious websites or clicking on potentially malicious URLs. But protecting customers and partners is another matter. Because a cloned site is beyond your security perimeter, it can be difficult to find and stop before an attack is actually underway. Yet failure to address these threats can lead to stolen company and customer data, financial losses, damage to reputation, lost productivity and compliance fines.
Fortunately, Mimecast provides brand protection solutions that are easy to implement and highly effective at stopping impersonation at the earliest stages of their development.

Brand impersonation uses domain similarity and cloned websites to trick employees and customers of a trusted brand into revealing their login credentials or sensitive information or transferring money to an attacker's account.
Finding and stopping a brand impersonation attack is incredibly difficult, as these attacks take place outside an organization's domain and security perimeter. Online brand protection solutions like Mimecast Brand Exploit Protect can help to identify and take down attacks in the early stages of preparation, limiting the damage they can do to the brand and its employees and customers.
