Data breach prevention built for advanced threats.

Data breach prevention is top of mind for nearly every organization today. Headlines about breaches and data leakage lead the news with alarming regularity, and the list of companies that have fallen prey to malicious attacks grows longer every month.

Failures in data breach prevention against internal and external threats can have big consequences. Whether it’s the inadvertent or malicious loss of intellectual property or the exposure of sensitive customer information, a data breach can bring on financial losses, legal action, and significantly damage to customer confidence and corporate reputation.

The challenge of data breach prevention is finding a solution that provides resilient security controls without stifling employee productivity. Additionally, a superior data breach prevention solution must provide tamper-proof evidence about data leaks for use in disciplinary actions and legal proceedings.

Mimecast offers a data loss prevention (DLP) solution that combines powerful protection with central management and ease-of-use.
