Ransomware

The Challenge

The U.S. government reports that ransomware attacks have increased at an alarming rate, with 4,000 incidents a day being reported and more than $1 billion of ransoms being paid per year. Many organizations are not ready for ransomware as they have neither effective prevention nor a plan for zero downtime or fast recovery.

Mimecast Solution

The Mimecast solution helps you prevent email-borne ransomware as well as protect your email data from loss. Unlike vendors of standalone security or backup products, Mimecast tackles ransomware with a layered email solution, bringing together security, continuity and email archiving capabilities in a single cloud solution. Mimecast addresses the ransomware threat from prevention to response.

Mimecast’s email security solution helps:

  • Prevent email-borne ransomware infections.
