Data loss protection solutions are essential to stopping email data leaks that can cause serious damage to an organization, its employees, clients and customers.
Organizations seeking email data protection often take great pains to adopt threat response solutions that prevent or mitigate malicious email-borne attacks. A strong cyber security defence is often targeted at stopping viruses, malware, spearfishing, impersonation attacks, ransomware and other advanced threats. Overlooked in these efforts is the damage that can be caused by someone inside the organization – and that threat is very real. According to a 2017 Forrester report, insider threats were responsible for more than half of reported data breaches.
Data loss protection solutions can help by automatically preventing email leaks. Data loss protection services can also help to identify potential threats, using email scanning to spot malicious activity. But adding a standalone data loss protection solution to a mix of disjointed email security technology only adds to the cost and complexity of managing business email. That's why so many organizations turn to Mimecast instead.

Mimecast's all-in-one solution combines data loss protection and email security services with email archiving, mailbox continuity, e-Discovery and compliance, and backup and recovery services to deliver a comprehensive solution for protecting business email.
