    The Challenge

    The challenges of internal email protection

    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.

    Our Solution

    The Mimecast Solution

    To combat internal email threats, you need to inspect internally generated emails for malicious links, attachments, or for sensitive content, and prevent the spread of attacks or data leaks.

    Organizations also need continuous protection from files delivered through emails that are later determined to be malicious.  Mimecast's Internal Email Protection service - 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:

    01.

    Scanning of attachments and URLs for malware and malicious links, as well as content inspection enabled by Data Leak Prevention.

    02.

    Detection of lateral movement of attacks via email from one internal user to another.
