Mimecast Limited CEO, Peter Bauer has outlined Mimecast’s vision of the future of email security at the North American Cyber Resilience Summit in Dallas, Texas. Today organizations are required to think bigger and create proactive cyber resilience postures that address the threats at the email perimeter, inside the email network, and also beyond their purview, to eliminate the threats that abuse the trust in their brands out in the wild. Organizations must also leverage the vast telemetry and threat intelligence that can be gathered at the attack surface of their email systems to make their teams and their other security investments smarter and more effective — this what Bauer referred to as advancing from perimeter email security to pervasive email security.
“The expanded attack surface, the proliferation of security vendors and the monetization of attacks have all increased the complexity of an organization’s security infrastructure. When you consider the cyber security skills gap that most organizations face today, the threat of business disruption due to a cyber-incident is certainly on the rise,” said Peter Bauer, chief executive officer at Mimecast.
“Addressing complexity is as much of a priority as increasing security. Adding new solutions to your security stack to help thwart new attacks may be counter-intuitive if those solutions don’t connect with each other. There’s power in platform-based solutions that can give organizations the visibility they need to help reduce risk and build a stronger proactive cyber resilience posture,” added Bauer.
In addition, Mimecast also announced it has engaged in strategic partnerships with DMARC Analyzer and Segasec to offer brand protection against threats outside the perimeter. Combining Mimecast defenses with DMARC Analyzer’s reporting and email validation solution, helps customers stop impersonation attacks faster with self-service email channel analysis and DMARC Reporting. The strategic partnership with Segasec means customers can help protect their brands from fraudulent impersonators in the wild and neutralize attacks before they are released.
These new technology partnerships in combination with Mimecast’s Cyber Resilience platform offers organizations full end-to-end detection and take down capabilities when a malicious actor conducts impersonation activities against an organization. Additionally, customers benefit from integrated, unparalleled visibility into inbound threats as well as those that exist beyond their visibility, helping to restore trust.
