The Need for Pervasive Email Security

As the number one threat vector for most organizations, email continues to be widely used by cyber criminals to penetrate organizations in support of a wide variety of cyberattacks. Unlike other attack vectors, email enables cybercriminals to directly leverage humans in an effort to bypass security controls and facilitate attacks. Recent business email compromise and other sophisticated phishing-related attacks all too often elude traditional email security controls, contributing billions of dollars to the pockets of criminals.

Many organizations are coming up short when protecting against modern email threats. A more comprehensive email security solution is needed—one that protects at the perimeter, inside the network and the organization, and beyond the perimeter. Mimecast’s Email Security 3.0 strategy can help.
