2019 State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Organizations rely on email to conduct business, which often requires the sending and receiving of sensitive information such as financial, medical, personal information and intellectual property – all of which must be communicated securely.
Employees generally don’t want to learn new applications and thus prefer to use their email to send and receive this information.
To address this, organizations need secure communication services built directly into their email.
For this, Mimecast provides automated Content Control and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) integrated into your email service to enforce your organization’s content security policies, as well as offers additional services such as Secure Messaging and Large File Send.
Careless users, compromised accounts, and malicious insiders are a source of sensitive data loss via email. No matter how much employee training security teams do, employees will share sensitive information and IP that they shouldn’t. While it is helpful to have security policies, it is increasingly important to automatically enforce these policies with security controls that inspect the content of emails and their attachments. This is exactly what Mimecast Content Control & DLP Services provide.LEARN MORE ABOUT Control Content & DLP
The Mimecast Secure Messaging Service addresses organizations’ need for secure information sharing and employees’ need to conduct business easily and quickly.
Mimecast provides a cloud-based protection service that enables the sharing of sensitive information without leaving the user’s email client of choice. This way, both employees and the employer get what they need; secure communications with ease of use.
Therefore, they typically put restrictions on the size of files sent or received via email. However, employees need to share large files that exceed the maximum size of the sending or receiving email systems. Without a solution, employees work around these limits by using unauthorized, insecure, consumer grade file-sharing services, putting the organization’s information at risk.
The Mimecast Large File Send Service was specifically designed to address the needs of both the organization and the employee, enabling the sending of large files as part of email workflow – all protected by the organization’s security controls.
