Mimecast provides cloud security services for combating whaling email scams and for protecting organizations against advanced email-borne threats.
With whaling email attacks on the rise, your organization needs solutions that can provide strong and automated protection against these devastating threats.
A whaling cyber attack is a form of impersonation attack where hackers send a message that appears to be from a chief executive officer, the chief financial officer or another C-suite executive. These whaling email messages will typically ask recipients to make wire transfers to vendors who turn out to be fraudulent, or to reveal sensitive business information or employee data that hackers can use to steal identities, gain access to business systems or initiate an email data breach.
While making your employees aware of the techniques used in a whaling email attack can help to stop some threats, only an automated email security solution can provide comprehensive cyber protection. That's exactly what you can achieve with Mimecast.
Mimecast provides cloud security services for combating whaling email scams and protecting your organization against a wide range of other threats. Mimecast's all-in-one, subscription service also provides tools for email archiving, continuity, backup and recovery, e-Discovery and compliance, enabling your IT administrators to conduct comprehensive business email management from a single pane of glass using a web-based interface.
