Scam emails continue to threaten corporate security
Scam emails have evolved to become a highly effective form of cyber attack. In fact, more than nine out of 10 successful hacking attacks today begin with email scams like phishing or spear-phishing. And scam emails containing ransomware or impersonation fraud are raising the stakes for corporate security even higher.
Stopping scam emails is critical, as successful breaches can cost millions, destroy reputations and disrupt operations. But defending against this kind of email fraud requires something stronger than standard anti-spam and malware technology. To defend against this kind of cyber fraud, you need a system that can combine state-of-the-art security to stop scam emails, user education to spot a spoof email, and powerful archiving solutions that can speed recovery after a successful attack.
That multilayered approach to email security is where Mimecast excels.
