Improve Response and Proactively Detect Email Threats with the new API.

Hello Mimecast Community! A quick introduction – I’m Michael Euperio, Director of Technology Alliances, over at LogRhythm. Mimecast recently announced LogRhythm as an API Alliance Partner and we couldn’t be more excited about what that means for our respective user communities.

The challenge for cybersecurity practitioners and enterprises worldwide is centered around a fundamentally-simple concept: email keeps business running and stores critically-important corporate and personal data. Email also remains the #1 cyberattack vector. Let’s review some numbers from the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report:

Mimecast has generated some momentum recently by stressing the importance of implementing a cyber resilience strategy. To recap, a comprehensive cyber resilience strategy extends email security beyond a 100 percent prevention-centric approach and, rather, adopts a resilient approach encompassing threat prevention and adaptability to new types of threats combined with built-in durability and rapid response.

Combining Mimecast’s email security data with other security and business context within LogRhythm’s NextGen SIEM platform improves overall security posture and enhances an organization’s cyber resilience. (Did I just win some Buzzword BINGO?!?)

Let’s simplify and first focus on the difference between a legacy SIEM and one that is considered NextGen. Let me try to describe it in one sentence – NextGen SIEM focuses on end-to-end real-time threat detection, classification, and response whereby automation and business risk-based threat management are central to the solution. The outcome we’re trying to enable is measuring Mean-time-to-Detect (MTTD) or Mean-time-to-Respond (MTTR) in seconds, minutes, or days instead of months or years.

Going back to the Mimecast-LogRhythm integration, our combined solutions don’t just allow for better assessment of email-borne attacks with advanced security analytics across the entire security stack. They also improve response with automated actions around quarantining malicious attachments, updating block policies, and disabling accounts. The result is dealing with less noise/alert fatigue and being able to proactively hunt for threats with this optimized threat lifecycle management workflow.
