Email security is in a state of transformation. As email attacks have become more sophisticated and targeted, organizations have continued to layer multiple security controls to a point where security teams are drowning in complexity. Email has become a preferred path for adversaries to circumvent other technical security controls, heightening the importance of email security as a top-5 priority in most organizations.
This growing complexity is dragging down security and IT teams, particularly those with only a handful of security professionals, as they focus on managing tools instead of on core risk reduction objectives. Emerging consolidated and integrated security platforms are helping these organizations reduce complexity while stopping the modern adversary. This analyst paper discusses the challenges and how the Mimecast platform can help address them.
