2019 State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
The speed of the information technology industry makes it highly susceptible to cybersecurity challenges. Take the complexity out of protecting your organization and focus on running your business.
The information technology industry is continuously changing. New software SaaS delivery models have caused IT firms to control sensitive data of customers and are drawing increased attention from attackers. This includes ransomware, spear-phishing and spoofing attacks designed to steal personal data or initiate fraudulent wire transfers.
IT firms are often growing quickly – making employees more likely to fall victim to well-crafted attacks. And with a mix of full-time and contract employees, it is even more difficult to spot email threats. If there is an incident, IT organizations need to keep vital communication channels open and maintain productivity to ensure IT resilience.
Mimecast provides the information technology industry with cyber resilience solutions in a single cloud platform. With advanced email security, Mimecast keeps ransomware and other threats like spear-phishing from damaging the organization. Email continuity keeps employees sending and receiving email, even in the event of a disruption of the primary mail server. And, with an independent archive and fast recovery tools, important data can be restored and found quickly if necessary.
Mimecast's email solutions help:
Prevent ransomware from impacting the organization.
Simplify archiving, data protection and e-discovery.
Eliminate the impact of email outages to maintain productivity.
Stop email-borne spear-phishing, impersonation and other advanced attacks.
Reduce cyber risk by improving security awareness.
Block malicious or inappropriate web activity.
Even the most secure, well-planned email systems go down. With Mimecast immediate failover means email flow is not interrupted in the event of a mail server outage or planned maintenance. Mimecast keeps sending and receiving email, and gives employees access via Outlook, web, mobile and Mac when cloud, on-premises or hybrid email systems go down.
Email remains the most common entry point for attacks.
Most gateway solutions stop spam and viruses, but fail to address spear-phishing, ransomware and targeted threats –the biggest challenges facing information technology organizations.
Rules such as the Data Protection Act and European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are challenging to implement as organizations determine the best way to institute controls to manage personal data in email. This includes individual consent, subject access rights, the right to be forgotten, and data portability.
Mimecast provides numerous ways to help simplify regulatory compliance.
Even the best employees can be maddeningly careless and resistant to change. Their casual mistakes can lead to disaster — and the cost can be staggering to your organization. Improve security culture with engaging content and advanced risk scoring.
While the majority of cyberattacks continue to be delivered through email, 91% of malware uses the web – and specifically DNS – to function once it lands. When combined, email and web represent the initiation point for 99% of successful breaches.
