Online security

Simplify online security with Mimecast

Email-borne threats are the biggest risk to online security.

It's a fact: more than 90% of cyber crime today begins with a phishing or spear-phishing email, making defense of your email system a critical part of online security.

The most dangerous cyber threats and vulnerabilities use email to target your users, who are typically the weakest link in the online security chain. Sophisticated threats like ransomware, impersonation fraud, and spear-phishing use social engineering, malicious URLs and weaponized attachments to dupe users into providing information or taking action they shouldn't.

To protect your organization and users, you need online security solutions that can power both a cyber security strategy and a cyber resilience plan – simultaneously stopping threats while also preparing for business continuity in the event a threat is successful.

That's where Mimecast can help. With an all-in-one subscription service for email security, continuity and archiving, Mimecast reduces the cost and complexity of achieving online security.
