Mimecast tackles internal email threats with cloud security service
Forrester Consulting discovered that 99% of organisations surveyed have been Impacted by internal email threats
Mimecast has unveiled its cloud-based security service which aims to provide threat capabilities for internally generated emails.
As part of its Targeted Threat Protection service, Internal Email Protect enables customers to detect and remediate security threats that originate from their users' email accounts.
This capability also includes the scanning of attachments and URLs, as well as content inspections via DLP services. Additionally, Internal Email Protect features the ability to automatically extract infected email or attachments from users' inboxes.
The service will investigate emails from the unassuming compromised insider, the careless employee inadvertently sending files and/or a malicious employee who wants to do harm to the company. Furthermore it provides organisations the visibility to reduce downtime and data and financial loss by addressing such threats.
"Not all threats are created equal; therefore, organisations need a cyber-resilience strategy to help organisations prepare for any type of attack - whether that be from outside or inside of the organisation, malicious or accidental," said Neil Murray, chief technology officer at Mimecast.
"Internal Email Protect is the only cloud-based email security service addressing internal-to-internal emails for malware, malicious URLs and the improper movement of sensitive content. With Internal Email Protect, organisations can get ahead of the attack and stop feeling like they're playing a never ending game of catch-up."
