Stop malware with Mimecast

Combating malware is a constant struggle.

As companies today rely on email more than ever, hackers are easily able to use email to spread malware, launch targeted phishing scams and commit impersonation fraud.

Defending against malware must be a constant pursuit – hackers are continually refining malware and cyber phishing attacks to get around corporate security. With email-borne threats representing more than 90% of all sophisticated cyber attacks, it's critical that organizations maintain robust technology to identify and mitigate malware in all its forms.

The perfect anti-malware technology must be easy to implement, manage and maintain, in order to avoid adding more burden to under-resourced IT teams. And because the stakes are so high, the right malware defense must also be incredibly effective. That's why, when choosing technology to defend against malware, spear-phishing and other phishing email scams, more companies around the world are turning to Mimecast.

Stopping malware in targeted attacks.

Cyber phishing and spearfishing represent some of the most dangerous threats to corporate security, often using websites infected with malware to steal sensitive information from employees. Mimecast defends against these phishing virus attacks and other advanced threats with the suite of services called Targeted Threat Protection. Mimecast scans links in all incoming email to identify potentially dangerous URLs and prevent users from accessing them. Mimecast also sandboxes suspicious attachments or rewrites them to a safe format. And to prevent impersonation fraud, Mimecast scans the header and content of all email to search for signs that indicate a potentially fraudulent message.

Mimecast also provides tools to increase phishing awareness among users, helping them to better spot potentially dangerous messages.
