Enterprise data protection requires strong data leak prevention
Data leaks, whether they're malicious or not, are a serious threat to enterprise data protection. Sensitive information like financials, future business plans, intellectual property and personally identifiable data that is subject to data privacy regulations must all be protected by the highest levels of data security. Since email is one of the most common sources of data leaks, your enterprise data protection solutions must include tools to identify and block potential leaks in outbound email.
For highly effective enterprise data protection, Mimecast provides a cloud-based subscription service with data protection solutions for stopping data leaks and protecting email from a wide variety of sophisticated threats.

Mimecast enterprise data protection solutions include Mimecast Content Control and DLP, a powerful content-filtering tool for maintaining control of information leaving the organization.

- Detect the presence of sensitive data in email, including customer lists, codenames, personally identifiable information.
- Convert documents to shareable formats like PDF and ODF, while removing document metadata like comments or tracked changes.

- Encrypt email with best-effort and policy-forced TLS usage.
Additional Mimecast solutions for enterprise data protection
In addition to data leak prevention, Mimecast's enterprise data protection includes powerful multipurpose archiving services to replicate email in the cloud and protect it from loss and corruption.

Mimecast email security services protect email from a variety of threats. A suite of Targeted Threat Protection services defend email against sophisticated attacks like spear-phishing, ransomware and impersonation fraud, as well as viruses, malware and spam. Mimecast's Secure Messaging service enables users to share sensitive information easily without requiring knowledge of complex access keys or encryption methods.
