Minimize the impact of a cyber attack with from Mimecast

Cyber resilience is the key to managing a cyber attack.

A successful cyber attack is a nightmare for any organization. And as cyber security threats have grown more sophisticated and ubiquitous, stopping a cyber attack has become more challenging.

Traditional cyber security solutions were concerned with preventing attacks – stopping viruses, blocking spam and rejecting malware. But with new and more dangerous threats emerging every day – threats like ransomware, impersonation fraud and spear-phishing – preventing every cyber attack has become almost impossible.

That's why more organizations are shifting to strategies for cyber resilience. While cyber security products and solutions are still valuable for stopping most threats, organizations are equally focused on minimizing the impact of an attack. Cyber resilience means providing business continuity during outages and ensuring fast recovery after a threat has been neutralized. And since email is the most common source of a cyber attack, a successful cyber resilience strategy must include tools for keeping email safe and available. That's where Mimecast can help.
