Adaptability

The Challenges

With millions of threats being created and deployed by tens‐of‐thousands of cybercriminals, some threats, at least initially, can slip through. Fortunately, most breaches do not occur as the result of an initial incursion. Business impacting breaches typically require multiple steps, as well as time, to become more than just annoying infections. You must be able to respond effectively to minimize the impact of these threats without finding, evaluating and deploying multiple unintegrated point solutions.  Fast pivoting is also required to address the latest attack vectors as part of a cyber resilience for email strategy. You can neither afford nor deploy solutions fast enough to keep up with the evolving threat landscape.   Adaptability ensures that your security team, employees and systems are able to respond effectively with sound judgement. More importantly, your employees must remain aware and continuously educated to maximize your security defenses.

The Solution

Mimecast helps organizations improve their adaptability to email-borne threats and minimize the impact of those threats that can bypass security defenses. This can be achieved through:

  • Continuous application of third‐party threat intelligence
  • Deployment of best‐of‐breed technologies
  • Layering of multiple technologies and threat data sources
  • Global threat analysis and investigations by the Mimecast Security Operations Center (MSOC)
  • Automated remediation to remove threats
  • Application of inline end‐user education at teachable moments
  • Integration with other security systems via Mimecast’s API ecosystem
