Is virus protection enough to defend your organization from cyber threats?
Virus protection continues to be a standard part of cyber defense for organizations of every size. New viruses emerge almost daily and are continually becoming more sophisticated at penetrating corporate security. The damage that a virus can do – from slowing performance to completely shutting down an organization's network or launching sophisticated attacks to steal sensitive information and money – means that virus protection must always be a high priority for IT security teams.
But an email virus checker alone isn't enough to defend against a growing number of cyber threats. From spear-phishing and ransomware to impersonation or a whaling cyber attack, cyber criminals are constantly devising new ways to dupe users and slip past corporate defenses.
To truly protect your organization, you need a multilayered approach to cyber security that not only includes virus protection and advanced malware protection, but defenses against attacks using social engineering, malicious URLs and attachments, and insider threats as well.
That's where Mimecast can help.
