Mimecast has announced its participation at GITEX Technology Week along with its distributor Bulwark Technologies.

The company will showcase a range of email and data security solutions and services, and also demonstrate how it can protect customers against advanced spear-phishing and whaling attacks with its Targeted Threat Protection service.

Brandon Bekker, managing director at Mimecast MEA, said: "At GITEX 2016, our security experts will discuss the top email attack strategies being used by cybercriminals and demonstrate how these work by performing a series of live hacks for visitors at our stand.

"We plan to highlight how our cloud-based email security services and our capabilities of Targeted Threat Protection, help reduce the risk, complexity and costs traditionally associated with protecting email. We look forward to meeting our existing and prospective customers and partners and scout for new partners in countries where we do not have a strong presence."

Mimecast will also promote a range of solutions from its portfolio, including, Mimecast Email Security, which protects against malware, spam, advanced phishing and other emerging attacks, while preventing data leaks, Mimecast Mailbox Continuity, which enables employees to continue using email during planned and unplanned outages, and Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving, which unifies email, file and instant messaging data to support e-discovery and give employees fast access to their personal archive via PC, Mac and mobile apps.​

Furthermore, Mimecast will showcase its email security cloud service designed to protect customers from the growing threat from email attacks known as CEO fraud, business email compromise or whaling.

Senior global executives and security experts from the company will be available to meet with customers and partners and share their global experiences with them.
