Email Security With Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection

Email is your organisation’s most important communication platform, yet the application that is most susceptible to attack. These attacks are designed to steal money, credentials, customer data, and other valuable intellectual property.

Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection (TTP) provides instant and comprehensive protection from the latest malware-less social engineering-based email attacks, also known as CEO fraud, impersonation, whaling or business email compromise.

What is Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection?

Mimecast Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection uses multiple, sophisticated, detection engines and a diverse set of threat intelligence sources to protect email from malware, spam, phishing, and targeted attacks delivered as a 100% cloud-based service. It defends organisations from spear-phishing, ransomware, impersonation and other targeted attacks with three main features, URL Protect, Attachment Protect and Impersonation Protect.

Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection Feature Breakdown

URL Protect

The URL Protect feature provides multi-step detection and blocking of malicious URLs. This includes:

  • Pre-click URL discovery
  • Employee education to prevent most cases of malicious URLs from being clicked. Did you know that most email related data breaches are a result of human error?
  • Post-click resolution, and blocking of dangerous files types.

Impersonation protect

Impersonation Protect is an advanced email security technology that protects employees against targeted social engineering attacks, that are often used in emails. They are often known as whaling or CEO Fraud. Whatever you call it, it’s time you started protecting against it.

Attachment Protect

Attachment Protect is an advanced email security technology that protects employees against targeted zero-hour attacks within email. These types of attack use weaponized attachments to evade traditional security measures.
