2019 State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Security systems need to adapt to the continually evolving threat environment. Mimecast delivers adaptability through the use of continuously updating third-party and Mimecast generated threat intelligence, global threat analysis and investigations provided by the Mimecast Security Operations Center team, deployment and layering of best-of-breed detective technologies, integrated inline end user education, automated remediation services, and the leveraging of the security ecosystem provided by the Mimecast API ecosystem.
With millions of threats being created and deployed by tens‐of‐thousands of cybercriminals, some threats, at least initially, can slip through. Fortunately, most breaches do not occur as the result of an initial incursion. Business impacting breaches typically require multiple steps, as well as time, to become more than just annoying infections.
You must be able to respond effectively to minimize the impact of these threats without evaluating and deploying multiple unintegrated point solutions. Fast pivoting is also required to address the latest attack vectors as part of a cyber resilience for email strategy. You can neither afford nor deploy solutions fast enough to keep up with the evolving threat landscape. Adaptability ensures that your security team, employees and systems can
respond effectively with sound judgement. More importantly, your employees must remain aware and continuously educated to maximize your security defenses.
This can be achieved through:
Continuous application of third‐party threat intelligence.
Deployment of best‐of‐breed technologies.
Layering of multiple technologies and threat data sources.
Global threat analysis and investigations by the Mimecast Security Operations Center (MSOC).
Automated remediation to remove threats.
Application of inline end‐user education at teachable moments.
Integration with other security systems via Mimecast’s API ecosystem.
Organizations can no longer rely on a defense-only strategy to keep them safe. They need a plan to keep email flowing in the event of an attack and the ability to recover lost or locked data quickly after an attack.
