LEXINGTON, Mass. – May 18, 2021 - Mimecast Limited (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email security and cyber resilience company, has been named a ‘Leader’ in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Email Security, Q2 2021. Mimecast Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection received the highest score possible in nine criteria including email authentication, web content security integration and product enhancements.   

The report cites that “Mimecast offers an extensive email security portfolio that includes security awareness and training, DMARC authentication, DLP, and encryption.” It goes on to say, “The acquisition of MessageControl in 2020 provides API integration into Microsoft 365 for additional messaging inspection. Its security awareness and training materials go beyond the traditional phishing education and cover the entire swath of security threats that are presented in an engaging manner.” The report also states that “Client references indicated Mimecast’s efficacy, ease of use, and pricing as strengths.”

“Cybercriminals target enterprise organizations with sophisticated, blended attacks that leverage digital deception tactics using both technology and psychology methodologies,” said Josh Douglas, vice president, product management at Mimecast. “From blended phishing and BEC attacks to insider threats and brand impersonation, the techniques are complex, and the attackers are relentless. The modern threat landscape requires an equally modern approach to cybersecurity.”
