Threat detection from Mimecast

Protect your organization with superior threat detection.

As cyber threats become more sophisticated and ubiquitous, organizations must rely on superior threat detection to protect data, employees and reputation. And because the vast majority of cyber crime begins with a phishing or spear-phishing email, any effective threat detection solution must center on your email system.

To combat ever-evolving attacks, you'll need threat detection services that provide a multi-layered approach to cyber security. No single threat detection tool can stop every kind of cyber security attack.

While some attacks use malicious URLs and weaponized attachments, others use advanced social engineering techniques that won't show up in all threat detection solutions.

For comprehensive cyber security tools that combine a variety of defenses and threat detection techniques, consider the comprehensive cyber security services available from Mimecast.
