Business Driver: Mimecast Email Protection

For most organisations nothing is more important than protecting the securing of sensitive communications to protect privacy, intellectual property and business availability. Email is the backbone of modern business communications and ensuring its safe, secure transit and storage is mission critical.

Value Proposition: Mimecast Email Protection 3.0

Computer users clicking phishing links still poses a grave threat to business resilience. Staff still click on links as attacks get trickier and users quickly forget training in cybersecurity.

Email security protection quickly delivers an ROI if it stops one attack that could initiate a ransomware attack or compromise privacy or data disclosure laws. Legislators are losing patience with organisations who fail to protect stakeholders from preventable breaches. According to the OAIC 44% of the reported breaches identified as “malicious or criminal attack – cyber incident” during April to June were from “Phishing” attacks. Nearly half!

That’s a known risk that can’t be shied away from. Email uptime and resilience reduce business risk and improve the user and client experience that drives productivity and the bottom line.
