In a growing climate of cybersecurity attacks, businesses can be shut down for hours if just one employee opens the wrong email attachment. This ever-present risk is forcing companies to take a broader look at their exposure, and in particular the cyber resilience processes they have in place to avoid damaging compromise.
The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.
This brief explores how Email is at the intersection of a massive amount of risk. It is the number-one application that organizations depend on for communications. Unfortunately, it is also the number-one attack vector used by cybercriminals.

Many organizations think their current email security systems are up to the task of protecting them. Unfortunately many email security systems fall short and do not keep their organisations safe. The reality is the entire industry needs to work toward a higher standard of quality, protection and overall email security. The proof is in the numbers, and Mimecast is establishing a standard of transparency for organisations and raising the bar for all security vendors.
Operating and securing a business in the cloud can be hard. The rapid evolution of cyberthreats, inevitability of technical failure, and potential for human error are risk factors that organisations simply can’t ignore. These risk factors can cause irreparable damage like business disruption, lengthy downtime and data loss. Plus, the complexity and cost involved with addressing these

Whether it's a script kiddie just goofing around, a member of one of the world's most sophisticated nation-state-based attacker groups trying to impact global politics, or a cybercriminal focused on turning digital information into digital cash, they all use email in their attack repertoire.
