Data protection

Data protection solutions from Mimecast

For true data protection, you must prevent leaks.

Data protection is the responsibility of every organization that deals with customers, patients and personally identifiable information. When this information is stolen or leaked, the damages are significant. From fines and legal ramifications to the loss of customer trust and revenue, the results of inadequate data protection can be disastrous.

While data protection necessarily focuses on stopping cyber criminals from stealing information, it must also work to eliminate inadvertent and malicious leaks from inside the company. Email has made it possible for employees to accidentally leak customer lists or financial data, and for disgruntled employees to steal intellectual property and business plans by attaching them to an email sent outside the organization.

The right data loss prevention tools can help to stop leaks via email by monitoring outbound messages and blocking, alerting or altering email as it leaves the organization. For companies that want to improve data protection, Mimecast offers best-of-breed data loss prevention software as part of an all-in-one subscription service.
