Email Security with
Targeted Threat Protection

Transforming email security with the most comprehensive cloud-based solution on the market.

Mimecast Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection uses multiple, sophisticated, detection engines and a diverse set of threat intelligence sources to protect email from malware, spam, phishing, and targeted attacks delivered as a 100% cloud-based service.

Secure Email Gateway

It used to be that secure email gateways with anti-spam and anti-virus security services were enough to keep an organization safe from email-borne attacks. Today, the stakes are much higher.  While still important, as approximately 60% of inbound email is spam or contains commodity malware, stopping only this traffic will leave your organization exposed to more sophisticated and targeted attacks.* Organizations around the globe continue to be impacted by phishing attacks every day.

The Mimecast Secure Email Gateway takes a different approach to email security and protects organizations from both spam and commodity attacks as well as more targeted and sophisticated ones.

URL Protect

The use of malicious URLs in email-borne spear-phishing attacks is now standard-operating-procedure for cybercriminals. When combined with smart, well-researched social engineering content, getting employees to click on links is easy for attackers and can lead directly to credential stealing, malware drops, or the loss of other sensitive data. Furthermore, keeping end users aware and accountable can be difficult to manage.

Malicious websites come and go very quickly, and thus it is critical to check them at the time of click, every click, while educating users along the way. This is exactly what Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection - URL Protect does.

Attachment Protect

Malware remains a significant threat. Sophisticated attackers, or their malware development partners, are constantly innovating to take advantage of both known and unknown vulnerabilities that exist in targeted organizations. Signature-based anti-virus systems alone cannot keep up with this innovation as there are multiple techniques that malware writers use to bypass their detection.

The best anti-malware strategy implements an adaptable approach and applies multiple analytic techniques to each file to filter out malicious email attachments.

This is exactly the approach that Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection - Attachment Protect uses to protect organizations from email-borne malware.

Impersonation Protect

Most attacks are focused on extracting money from their targets. Increasingly, cybercriminals have moved their monetization efforts to email-borne attacks which impersonate your C-Suite, your boss, your business partners as well as well-known internet brands. Attackers do this to build trust, lower the guard of their victims and to persuade them to initiate a fraudulent wire transfer or to send over some other type of personal identifiable information (PII).

Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection - Impersonation Protect specifically protects against these types of sender spoofing and socially engineered attacks.

Internal Email Protect

Organizations need continuous protections against threats that are on the inside. For most, inbound email-borne spear-phishing style attacks are the primary focus by security teams, but that doesn’t sufficiently protect an organization. It is important to recognize that internal-to-internal emails as well as outbound emails are regularly used to spread threats and spam. In addition, organizations need continuous protection against delivered email-borne files which are later determined to be malware.

Once attackers steal your employees’ log-in credentials their next step is to increase their footprint in your organization, send phishing emails internally using the stolen accounts, and launch attacks from your organization without you knowing. It is critical that organizations apply sophisticated security controls in all your email vectors – inbound, outbound, and internal. It is also important to have automation that removes threats once they are discovered.

Mimecast Internal Email Protect extends Mimecast’s security controls to your organization’s internally generated emails providing 360 degrees of email protection.
