Email security threats are constantly evolving.

Email security threats continue to be among the biggest risks to organizations worldwide. 1In fact, more than 90% of hacking attacks today begin with some kind of email phishing attack or spear-phishing threat. The headlines are full of companies who fall prey to email security threats, and new lines of attack such as ransomware and CEO fraud are on the rise.

The cost of email security threats on an organization can be enormous. Aside from the fines and legal actions that result when sensitive customer information or financial data is breached, email security threats can cost millions of dollars in reduced customer confidence, damage to reputation and, ultimately, loss of business.

Combating email security threats requires superior technology that can adapt to meet the most sophisticated attacks head-on. When choosing a partner to help combat email security threats and protect the business, companies worldwide turn to services from Mimecast.
