RA Information Systems engaged Mimecast for cybersecurity improvement and protection against email-based threats
Email is a great way to communicate, but it can be used by hackers to steal data, credentials or money from business. An email-borne attack with significant business impact is seen as likely by many technology companies as a result of the raising number of incoming email threats in the past 12 months. The tech sector’s pivotal role in software supply chains, its work environments and valuable intellectual property make it a target. Comprehensive threat intelligence, security and risk management require a proactive update of threat-detection tools to deliver continuous improvement and strengthen cyber resilience. This is why we have recently partnered with Mimecast by deploying new email security with advanced technical capabilities to control attachments, extend encryption, prevent data loss and keep email flowing.
“Most significant cybersecurity attacks may come from many different angles, including ransomware, phishing attacks and public Wi-Fi. Any email, even ones that look real can be dangerous, links in email can send you to websites that steal your login credentials. Given the nature of the work we do, RA Information Systems need to stay a step ahead of serious threats, so we engaged Mimecast. We are able monitor any threats in the Mimecast dashboard and better understand the nature of the threat, including who was targeted, when they were targeted. It’s a significant help to us.” – says Jon Dabbs – RA director.
