If there’s one certainty, it’s that employees will continue to click without thinking. Robust email security controls can protect clicks from email messages, but what about everywhere else – like social media, instant messaging and personal webmail? Strong web security is needed to protect clicks from just about anywhere.
Email and web are the top two vectors for cyberattacks, serving collectively as the initiation point for 99% of successful breaches and being used in concert to execute 91% of the malware delivered via email. Because the bad guys use these channels together, a seamless, simple, and scalable web security strategy for protecting them together is essential.
Mimecast addresses the top two cyberattack vectors – email and web – with a single, fully integrated cloud service.
