Email threats

Email threats continue to evolve.

Email threats continue to evolve.

The universe of email threats is constantly evolving. As email has become central to business communications, attackers have continued to find new ways of using email to breach corporate security. From more routine email threats like viruses and spam to advanced targeted attacks like phishing, spear-phishing and wire transfer phishing, organizations must combat an increasingly varied onslaught of attacks.

The key to thwarting existing and emerging email threats is to adopt a multi-layered approach to email security. While there are a great many solutions available for stopping individual threats, deploying and managing multiple point solutions can be prohibitively costly and complex, adding additional strain to already overburdened IT teams. That's why so many leading organizations today turn to Mimecast's comprehensive email security services to successfully fend off a broad range of email threats.
