WERNO GEVERS
AN IN-DEPTH DEFENCE STRATEGY

Organisations today need a security strategy that’s as pervasive and persistent as the threats they work to combat every day. How does Mimecast help them with this?

In order to develop a comprehensive cybersecurity plan, organisations need to take a risk-based approach. Moving to a risk-based approach helps a team reprioritise and zero in on what really makes a difference. Organisations also need to implement a defence in-depth strategy, which is essentially a layered approach to cybersecurity. When used in conjunction with the native security features of an organisation’s email platform, a defence in depth strategy can support a company’s security posture and provide a much greater degree of cyber resilience. Also, with a defence in depth strategy, if one security control proves ineffective, others are in place to fill the breach.

Mimecast’s vision is to enable organisations 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. This will help to eliminate the threats that abuse the trust in their brands. With Mimecast’s security solutions, threats are addressed across three zones of control – At the perimeter, inside the network and organisation and beyond the perimeter – providing businesses with a complete and comprehensive approach.

E-mail is, perhaps, the main entry point used by hackers to orchestrate a cyberattack. In this context, do you think traditional approaches to email security are enough?
