July Product of the Month: Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection

By Keith Millett | Jun 29, 2016 | Product of the Month

Your company and employees are targets for sophisticated email attacks designed to steal credentials, customer data, and valuable intellectual property.

Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection extends traditional gateway security to defend against malicious links in email, weaponized attachments and malware-less social-engineering attacks, often called whaling- the three most common attack methods.


Instant Protection From Malware-Less Social Engineering Attacks Like Whaling

  • Advanced protection against malware-less attacks in email – like the latest whaling, CEO fraud and business email compromise.
  • Real-time scanning of all inbound emails to detect anomalies in the header, domain information and body content that could point to financial fraud or social engineering.
  • Prevent employees from being duped into making fraudulent wire-transfers by using Impersonation Protect to mark or quarantine suspicious messages.
  • Simple policy control and reporting that assist security specialists in monitoring attempted attacks.
