Mitigate cyber threats and vulnerabilities with Mimecast

Cyber resilience is key to stopping cyber threats and vulnerabilities.

As cyber threats and vulnerabilities continue to proliferate, organizations are seeking solutions that enable greater cyber resilience. While cyber security strategy was once preoccupied with stopping threats, today companies are also looking for ways to survive a cyber security attack unscathed.

Traditional cyber threats and vulnerabilities like viruses and malware pale in comparison to recent forms of cyber hacking like spear-phishing, ransomware and impersonation fraud. These attacks can devastate companies, exposing private information and leading to fines and legal damages. A cyber resilience strategy acknowledges that stopping all attacks may not be possible, and focuses on plans to limit damages and ensure business continuity when an attack occurs.

Because most cyber threats and vulnerabilities today originate in email, any cyber resilience plan should include technology for email security and availability. That's why so many companies concerned about mitigating the effects of cyber threats and vulnerabilities turn to Mimecast.
