Email is the #1 most used application by both organizations, and unfortunately cybercriminals, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonation attacks, and the spread of cyber threats that are already internal to your organization.

In fact, Mimecast’s 2021 State of Email Security Report (https://www.mimecast.com/state-of-email-security/) revealed a 64% year-over-year increase in overall threat volume. Mimecast’s research also found that companies are woefully unprepared to handle the spike in email-based threats, with 40% of respondents admitting their organizations falls short in one or more critical areas of email security. Compounding these issues, traditional email security can’t combat cybercriminals’ advanced threats.

Mimecast Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection defends against advanced attack methods and goes well beyond just providing cloud-based anti-virus and anti-spam protections.

Mimecast Email Security is a one-of-a-kind, multi-layered email security solution that provides:

• Advanced security – Secure email gateway defends against email-borne impersonation attempts, malicious URLs at time-of-click, known and unknown malware, spam, internal threats, malicious and accidental information loss.

• Threat protection, threat intelligence and threat remediation – Detects attacks at and inside the perimeter, providing deep threat intelligence and the ability to contain cybersecurity threats.

• Business continuity – Offers a 100% SLA on email availability in the event of an outage of a primary email system.

• Brand exploit protection – Protects against both abuse of domains you own and brand imitation using ones you don’t in part by leveraging DMARC.

• Browser isolation – Allows users to safely click on any embedded URL and surf the web.

• Internal email protect – Extends Mimecast’s security controls to your organization’s internally generated emails.

• Security awareness training – Reduces employee security mistakes with relevant training and tactical security tests.

Earlier in 2021, Mimecast announced CyberGraph, a new add-on for Mimecast Email Security. Using AI, CyberGraph creates an identity graph, which detects anomalies and leverages machine learning technology to help enterprise organizations alert employees.
