Keep your emails safe:

All corporations have cybersecurity at heart, keeping employees safe from security threats is a must, how can Mimecast assist with this?

Mimecast’s infamous Secure Email Gateway protects businesses and employees using any cloud or on-premises email platform. It defends against inbound spear-phishing, malware, spam and zero-day attacks by combining innovative applications and policies with multiple detection engines and intelligence feeds.

Your sensitive information, and of course, your business’ reputation, is protected by outbound scanning of all emails to block threats and prevent malicious or unintentional loss of sensitive and also confidential information. Just have a think of how many business' reputations have been dented by cyber-attacks, even the recent Twitter hackings. 

For most people, inbound email-borne spear-phishing style attacks are the primary focus for security teams, but you need to understand that doesn’t sufficiently protect an organization. It is important to recognize that internal-to-internal emails on top of outbound emails are regularly used to spread threats and spam. Always be wary of clicking on links in any email.

Mimecast's Internal Email Protect extends Mimecast’s security controls to your organization’s internally-generated emails providing 360 degrees of email protection. Mimecast's innovative DMARC Analyzer protects you by stopping direct domain spoofing, Mimecast Brand Exploit Protect neutralizes brand imitation on the internet.
