As email-borne attacks continue to evolve, threat intelligence is key to identifying and mitigating sophisticated attacks that can do serious damage to an organization.
Threat intelligence is data and knowledge about known and emerging security threats, including what they look like, how they work, how they impact an organization and how they can be stopped. Threat intelligence is particularly important for identifying and blocking new threats – having access to up-to-the-minute data on information gleaned from email threats worldwide is critical to stopping a mail attack before it can breach defenses and wreak havoc.
With millions of threats being launched by tens of thousands of cyber criminals each year, information security management requires a threat intelligence provider that has a finger on the pulse of trends in email-related cybercrime and can quickly update IT teams and security defenses to effectively block attacks. That's why so many organizations worldwide turned to threat intelligence solutions from Mimecast.
