Mimecast Report: Nearly a quarter of ‘unsafe’ emails getting through to user inboxes

Dubai, UAE, July 30, 2017– Mimecast Limited (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, today announced the results of its third quarterly Email Security Risk Assessment (ESRA), a report of the results of tests which measure the effectiveness of incumbent email security systems. This quarter’s assessment noted a continued challenge of securing organizations from malicious attachments, dangerous files types, impersonation attacks, as well as spam – with nearly a quarter of “unsafe” email being delivered to users’ inboxes. Among the email security services assessed, the tests found that using Mimecast in conjunction with prominent cloud-based email service providers, including Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365, would substantially improve results by blocking thousands more email-borne attacks. The report indicates the need for organizations to enhance their cyber resilience strategies for email with a multi-layered approach that includes a third-party security service provider. read more
