The State of Email Security 2018 Report
The latest threats, confidence killers and bad behaviors—and a cyber resilience strategy to fix them
Mimecast's Targeted Threat Protection - Internal Email Protect expands the capabilities of Mimecast's Targeted Threat Protection suite of products, enabling organizations to monitor, detect and remediate email-borne security threats that originate from within their email systems; whether the emails are for other internal users or are outbound to external email domains.
It’s a common misconception 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 once they are 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 an internal user to spread the attack laterally to others in your organization or even outbound to external contacts.
In most cases, without their knowledge or understanding, your employees play an integral role in these attacks by sending an attacker’s emails to others in the organization.
Organizations also need continuous protection from delivered email-borne files that are later determined malicious. Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection - Internal Email Protect enables you to monitor, detect and remediate threats that have landed internally, or that originate from 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.
