Microsoft Office 365 provides a broad range of benefits for business email, but stopping Office 365 phishing threats and other email phishing scams may require help from a best-of-breed, third-party solution.
In traditional on-premises Exchange environments, enterprise IT teams can invest in solutions to stop phishing emails and mitigate the threats of malware, spam, zero-day attacks and other security issues. When moving to the cloud, these threats pose as a great a risk as well, but for all its benefits, Office 365 alone may not fully mitigate this risk.
With a leading cloud-based service for email security, archiving and continuity, Mimecast provides a powerful complement to Office 365, providing highly effective defenses against Office 365 phishing and other email-borne threats.
With Mimecast's comprehensive services for email management, IT teams can avoid deployment of a variety of disjointed point solutions to augment Office 365 features, while also mitigating single vendor exposure.
