Safeguarding sensitive client information

The Challenge

Law firms are holders of highly valuable and confidential client data, making them a particularly attractive target. Recent high profile breaches serve as a reminder of the risk the industry faces. Encrypting and safeguarding email communications with clients and third parties is equally as important.

In addition to keeping the attackers out, firms need to store and access archived information – while simultaneously making it accessible. On-premises solutions require IT overhead that many firms don't have or provide the flexibility that all firms desire. And email and archives can't go offline.

Mimecast Solution

Mimecast security and cyber resilience solutions protect legal firms against external attacks and protect client information. Mimecast's advanced email security defends against spear-phishing, ransomware and impersonation attacks. Advanced data leak prevention stops sensitive information from being shared with unauthorized staff or third parties, while aiding regulatory compliance such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Mimecast provides fast e-discovery and access to archived emails within an industry leading 7 seconds.

Mimecast’s email solution helps:

Spear-phishing and Targeted Threats

91% of attacks by sophisticated cybercriminals start through email.
