Mimecast’s latest State of Email Security Report found that 61% of organizations were hit by an attack where malicious activity spread between employees via email.
Stop attacks from spreading rapidly and silently between employees and to customers or partners with best practice email security inspections applied to all email – inbound, internal, and outbound.
The focus of most cybercriminals is to get in and around your network, with the goal of stealing your sensitive information or locking your systems via ransomware and ransoming access back to you.
Email has proven to be a very effective system, but what about internal email security threats; those dangerous emails generated from within your organization? In many cases, mostly without their knowledge or understanding, your employees play an integral role in these attacks.
To combat insider email security threats, Mimecast provides Internal Email Protect, a threat monitoring and remediation service for internally generated emails. Internal Email Protect scans attachments and URLs for malware and malicious links, as well as email content inspection enabled by Data Leak Prevention. Internal Email Protect can automatically delete infected or sensitive emails and attachments from employees’ inboxes increasing efficacy of protection.
Internal Email Protect:
Detects the lateral movement of insider threats via email from one internal user to another.
Identifies and blocks insider threats or sensitive data attempting to leave an organization.
Automates the removal of internal emails which are determined to contain insider threats or sensitive data.
Continuously rechecks previously delivered files to identify and remediate any previously unidentified malware, post-delivery.
Is an integrated part of the Mimecast administration console for reporting, configuration and management.
