Stop cyber security threats with Mimecast

Cyber resilience is the key to managing cyber security threats.

As cyber security threats continue to challenge organizations large and small, many companies are adopting a cyber resilience strategy to minimize the impact on business operations and the bottom line.

For years, cyber security solutions have tried to prevent cyber security threats by building defenses around networks, applications and data. And yet despite this effort and investment, cyber security threats have only become more powerful, sophisticated and effective. Viruses, malware and spam seem like nothing compared to today's social engineering threats like ransomware, spear-phishing and impersonation fraud.

A cyber resilience strategy recognizes the eventual likelihood of a successful cyber attack and puts plans in place to ensure that business can continue without disruption and that data will not be lost or corrupted. And because email-borne threats are so prevalent today – 91% of hacks begin with a phishing or spear-fishing email – a cyber resilience strategy must plan for email security, continuity and backup and recovery.

When you want powerful solutions that can simplify cyber resilience and cyber security management, consider the cloud-based services from Mimecast.
