    As organizations seek to protect email from an ever-evolving threat landscape, cloud security providers like Mimecast can help to defend email data, users and the business more effectively.

    Choosing cloud email protection offers concrete benefits over traditional security defenses. For example, cloud security providers offering SaaS-based services enable companies to quickly rollout security measures to all users, without needing capital investment in hardware or software and with no longer lead times for provisioning and installation.

    Email cloud security providers like Mimecast can also deliver solutions that are informed by more accurate threat intelligence. Because Mimecast manages email cloud security for tens of thousands of clients worldwide, our team of analysts and security researchers can monitor billions of emails each month to watch how new threats evolve and to develop highly effective threat response solutions. And because cloud security services enable updates to be deployed far more rapidly than traditional software models, Mimecast solutions can quickly integrate up-to-the-minute intelligence to block emerging threats.

    Cloud security protection against advanced threats.

    Not all email threats rely on malicious URLs or attachments. More recent threats like impersonation attacks use social engineering techniques to dupe users into providing sensitive information and credentials or to unwittingly wire money to fraudulent accounts.

    To combat these attacks, Mimecast's cloud security measures include:

    • Real-time scanning of inbound email to detect header anomalies, domain similarity, recency of sending domain and other signs of impersonation fraud.
    • DNS authentication using SPF, DKIM and DMARC email security standards.
    • Inspection across various character sets to identify domain similarities.
    • Targeted Thread Dictionaries managed by Mimecast.
    • External domain similarity protection to identify attackers who may be exploiting trusted third-party relationships or well-known brands.
