2019 State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Mimecast Secure Email Gateway protects organizations and employees from spear-phishing, malware, spam and zero-day attacks by combining innovative applications and policies with multiple detection engines and intelligence feeds to keep sophisticated attackers out.
Email is the #1 most used application by both organizations, as well as cybercriminals, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization.
Millions of organizations use Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, G-Suite, or a hybrid environment. However, traditional approaches to secure email gateways are no longer enough. If you think of email security being single-layered and focused on anti-virus and anti-spam, your organization is vulnerable to targeted email-borne attacks. As in the times of on-premises Exchange, you shouldn’t rely on Office 365 to deliver the sophisticated security your organization requires.
Attack methods are quickly evolving and growing more sophisticated, targeted and dangerous. Right now, the industry is faced with email-borne threats such as phishing attacks delivering malicious attachments and URLs; impersonation fraud fuelled by social engineering and aimed at tricking employees; and ransomware attacks that can encrypt your data and take entire systems offline.
