Internal Email Protect

The Challenge

It’s a common misperception that email-borne attacks come only from the outside. While most attacks do start from the outside, attackers will typically look to land and expand inside an organization. One way to gain this foothold is to use a compromised account or remote access malware to send an internal email as that internal user to spread the attack laterally to others in your organization or even outbound to your external contacts. 

In most cases, without their knowledge or understanding, your employees play an integral role in these attacks by forwarding attack emails to others in the organization.

Mimecast Solution

To combat internal email threats, you need to inspect internally generated emails for malicious links, files, or for sensitive content, and prevent the spread of attacks or data leaks. Organizations need continuous protection from delivered email-borne files that are later determined to be malicious. Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection - Internal Email Protect enables you to monitor, detect and remediate threats that have landed internally or that originate from within your email system, whether the emails are destined to other internal users or to external recipients.

 Key capabilities include:

  • Scanning of attachments and URLs for malware and malicious links, as well as content inspection enabled by DATA LEAK PREVENTION (DLP).
  • Automated remediation of infected or sensitive emails and attachments from employees’ inboxes.
  • Detection of lateral movement of attacks via email from one internal user to another.
  • Identification and blocking of THREATS or sensitive data attempting to leave an organization.
  • Continuous monitoring and re-checking of the status of all previously delivered files with automated alerting and removal.
  • A single administration console for easy reporting, configuration and management.

“Email Is an Old Technology, with Lots of Legacy Problems. It’s Time to Start over with Something New.” Oh Really?

It’s that time again. It seems to come around at least a few times a year. Time to question if there’s life left in the old email dog. The first time I heard the death of email predicted was in 1980, as a graduate student in Computer Science at Carne…
