Mimecast's web protection software provide advanced defenses to keep the web safe for companies, their employees and guests.
The web is the second-most commonly used vector for cyberattacks, playing a significant role in 91% of malware attacks. The web is also a significant distraction for employees at work, and the source of potential legal and compliance risks. Clearly, protecting and controlling web usage is critical to ensuring security and productivity for any organization.
This challenge is made more difficult by a lack of technology for monitoring the DNS layer. Cyber criminals frequently rely on the web and DNS specifically to complete their attacks, but this channel is often left under-protected. And web protection grows more challenging each year as employees are increasingly accessing corporate web resources from remote and mobile locations.
Mimecast Web Security solves these challenges by providing 100% cloud-based web protection software that minimizes the cost and complexity of securing the DNS layer while providing advanced defenses to keep the web safe for companies, their employees and guests.
Mimecast Web Security adds security and monitoring at the DNS layer, protecting against malicious web activity related to malware or initiated by user action, and providing tools to block access to websites that are inappropriate for business use.
Easy to set up and simple to manage, Mimecast's web protection software inspects content and file downloads from suspicious sites using a dynamic proxy that applies anti-virus, URL categorization, SSL inspection and static file analysis while also enforcing acceptable web use policies.
With Mimecast Web Security software, you can:
Mimecast's web filtering technology provides an easy way to monitor web activity and secure web experiences. Every time a user clicks a link or types address into their browser to access the Internet, a DNS request is sent to Mimecast Web security to be inspected and resolved. The requested web resource is scanned for malicious content, and the site is evaluated against acceptable use policies set by the organization. If the site appears to be malicious or unacceptable, access is blocked, and the user receives a notification in their browser. If the site is safe and acceptable, access is immediately allowed.
Mimecast Web Security is the ideal complement to Mimecast's proven email security service. With Mimecast, you get a fully integrated, highly cost-effective and easy-to-manage solution that protects the top two vectors for cyberattacks. Mimecast's combined email and web protection software service delivers:
Web protection software is designed to identify, block and respond to cyberattacks that are launched against an organization's web resources, including browsers, websites, web applications and web services.
The web is one of the most common vectors for cyberattack. Attackers frequently use the web to launch attacks that can result in the loss of data, money, identities, reputation and business. Website, web application and web service security are critical to protecting an organization, its employees and customers from the dangers of web-based cybercrime.
A multilayered defense is the most effective protection against web attacks. Solutions like Mimecast that combine multiple defenses on a single platform are not only more effective at stopping threats but are easier to manage and more cost-effective as well. The Mimecast platform combines web security solutions with email security technology, brand protection solutions and security awareness training to provide a comprehensive defense against cyberattacks.
