The State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Augment Office 365 Threat Intelligence with Mimecast's targeted threat protection, web security, and information protection to prevent cyber threats.
Organizations are increasingly moving to Microsoft Office 365 to take advantage of the accessibility, scalability and ease of management this highly popular cloud service offers. But while Microsoft provides a number of security capabilities, including the Office 365 Threat Intelligence service, Microsoft's native cyber threat intelligence capabilities are often not sufficient to achieve all objectives for security and compliance in Office 365.
Office 365 threat intelligence helps security analysts and administrators to protect the organization by providing insights about security threats and developments within an Office 365 environment.
But no matter how insightful Office 365 Threat Intelligence is or how strong Microsoft defenses are, relying solely on the built-in capabilities within the Microsoft platform means putting your security in the hands of a single service or vendor – a clear miss of the layered security best practice. And as email continues to be the #1 vector for cyberattacks, organizations need more powerful solutions to defend the email and Office 365 from a rapidly evolving threat landscape.
Mimecast provides a cloud-based solution for email security, compliance, archiving and data protection that integrates seamlessly with Office 365 Threat Intelligence to provide complete protection against cyber threats.

What is threat intelligence?
Threat intelligence consists of information and insight about the cyber threats facing an organization. Cyber intelligence includes information about attackers, their motivations capabilities and the indicators of compromise that organizations can use to identify and mitigate threats. Threat intelligence solutions often use machine learning to automate data collection, integrate unstructured data from disparate sources, and uncover potential threats and the tactics and techniques used by attackers.
