Mimecast Now Delivers Community-Based, Tailored Threat Intelligence
The cybersecurity landscape changes daily, and attackers are constantly changing their techniques to avoid detection. According to Mimecast’s recent The State of Email Security Report 2019, 94 percent of organizations saw phishing attacks in the last 12 months and 61 percent said it was likely or inevitable that they would be hit with an email-borne attack. IT and security teams are often overwhelmed by the volume of information they need to track and if the intelligence they need to proactively defend their organization is buried, their defense becomes less effective.
“As the threat landscape evolves, arming our organization and people with the best possible tools is more important now, than ever,” said
“The cyberthreat landscape is dynamic, complex and driven by a relentless community of adversaries. IT and security teams need threat intelligence that is easy to digest and actionable, so they can better leverage the information to proactively prevent and defend against cyberattacks,” said
Mimecast Threat Intelligence consists of a Threat Dashboard, Threat Remediation and Threat Feed with Threat Intelligence APIs that each deliver a range of capabilities including:
- A dashboard that is designed to present information specific to each customer in a user-friendly view that gives them greater visibility and control over their security environment. The dashboard highlights end-users who are most at-risk, malware detections, malware origin by geo-location, IoCs and malware forensics based on static and behavioral analysis.
- Threat Remediation that can be accessed directly through the Mimecast Administration Console, removing messages that contain malicious content from view, and restoring messages when necessary.
- The Mimecast Threat Feed which is delivered through the threat intelligence API and threat remediation API providing organizations the ability to deliver threat intelligence directly into their broader security eco-system, including SIEMs, SOARs, next-generation firewalls, and end-point protection. Threat Intelligence APIs also help to identify and counter potential attacks and offer up remediation capabilities through the same portal by providing aggregated threat data across 35,000
Mimecastaccounts, so that each individual customer can benchmark themselves against a range of company types in their geographic region, thereby offering a clearer view of threats.
The Mimecast Threat Dashboard and Threat Feed are value-added capabilities for customers with Mimecast’s Secure Email Gateway. Threat Remediation is available to customers who also have Mimecast Internal Email Protect.
