Mimecast; Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection

It’s nearly 2020, it’s time you took cybersecurity seriously; particularly your email security.

Every company is under threat. Whether you’re small or large, Cyber-criminals are out phishing and unfortunately, you’re the main target.

Now you’ve probably heard of the term phishing, but do you know how much damage it can cause, without you or anyone else being aware of what’s going on?

Probably not.

As you would’ve guessed, the term ‘phishing’ is wordplay from the more commonly known ‘sport’, fishing. But instead of fish being caught out by simple bait, it’s you.

Often find a lot of junk mail in your inbox?

On the most part, it’s harmless, just your usual spam from retail stores, trying to lure you in to spend all your hard-earned money. Although you’d be better off spending it there than giving it away to a cyber-criminal.

Get rid of all the rubbish and you’ll be left with some emails you’ll struggle to delete, either down to who it’s from or how accurate the subject is.

This is where you’ll either continue on with your journey or take a dark turn into the unknown.

Phishing is carried out through email, masking as someone else and tricking you into entering your personal details into their malicious website. Others will then either run scripts to take control of your computer (without you even knowing) or download & install malicious software.


So, what’s the deal with Email Security, is it any good?

Yes. With email being the most important communication platform for a business, it is the application most susceptible to attack. With approximately 60% of inbound email categorised as spam or containing commodity malware nowadays, its vital you up your game.

To put a barricade up will stop you from ever receiving any emails ever again! Therefore, it’s vital that you smartly manage & filter your email to protect your valuable data at all costs.

This is where Mimecast steps in.

Working in the background, analysing your emails continually and creating a secure email gateway.
