Cyber resilience

Cyber resilience requires strong email management tools.

Cyber resilience requires strong email management tools.

As email-borne threats become more prevalent and sophisticated, many organizations are shifting to a cyber resilience strategy to better protect their business, data and employees.

Cyber resilience is a paradigm shift in cyber security — an acknowledgment that attacks on email systems are likely to continue and despite best efforts, they will sometimes be successful. Consequently, a cyber resilience strategy focuses not just on combating attacks but on ensuring continuity during an attack and fast recovery after a threat is neutralized.

For organizations implementing a cyber resilience plan for email, Mimecast offers an all-in-one suite of solutions to address risks associated to email security, enterprise archiving and email availability.
