Organization-wide security policies are managed from a single interface and can be applied with immediate effect, enabling a faster response to rapidly evolving situations. J2 Software assist and enable end users to self-serve via Outlook, a native Mac app, browser and mobile apps, for actions including quarantine management and blocked senders, helping improve their productivity and reduce the burden on IT.

    Mimecast’s unique approach to email security starts with our service platform, which provides a zero drag pass-through Secure Email Gateway service as a foundation to build a tailored protection suite for your organization. Additional features and services can further enhance security and control; including Targeted Threat Protection, Data Leak Prevention, Email Encryption, Content Controls and even Large File Send tools.

  • Email security in the cloud with Mimecast’s pass-through gateway.

    Email security is an essential part of your overall security strategy, protecting your users from the latest email threats and enforcing security controls on information flows. Email security powered by a zero drag pass-through cloud gateway is now the defacto standard for security best practice.

    Mimecast’s Secure Email Gateway is a core security component of the Mimecast Platform, designed to deliver real time email security to protect your business and your users from email threats. Our security gateway includes:

    • Leading protection with a 99% anti-spam with 0.0001% false positives and bulk mail detection, 100% anti-malware including zero-day protection, and 100% availability SLA.
    • Unique privacy with Mimecast’s zero-drag email security gateway, which passes email through the gateway without storing it to eliminate legal, latency and privacy concerns.
    • Advanced protection for information in transit to reduce the risk of snooping and interception.
    • Significantly reduced cost and risk with Mimecast’s cloud security platform which removes the need for all other email security point solutions, on the LAN and in the cloud.

    • Email Continuity
    • Email Encryption and Privacy
  • Instant and comprehensive protection from spear - phishing and targeted attacks by email.

    With cyber-attacks and data breaches on the increase, organizations are becoming painfully aware of the potential threats to their valuable data and intellectual property (IP), as well as any customer data they may hold.

    Security scanning or gateway services have made it harder for traditional spam or phishing attacks to penetrate enterprise email systems. Determined attackers are increasingly using a combination of sophisticated social-engineering and targeted or spear-phishing emails to breach their targets.

    Standard email security gateways are not designed to detect these new attacks or protect their users from this very dynamic threat vector. Highly targeted attacks are designed to foil even the most sophisticated defenses.

    Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection is an advanced email security technology that protects users against spear-phishing and targeted attacks in email, extending our existing Secure Email Gateway anti-spam and anti-virus services.

    The service re-writes all URLs embedded in email, then performs a layered security check on the destination site when a user clicks on the link. This wholesale protection is more robust, more effective and more secure than trying to detect the single phishing email. Targeted Threat Protection delivers key benefits including:

    • Instant protection: Stop targeted attacks and spear phishing, across all devices, desktop and mobile, corporate and BYOD – no client software needed.
    • Real-time protection: On-click, every click URL scanning provides protection each time a link is clicked. Protects against good websites turning bad, or delayed exploits.
    • Rapid deployment: simply and centrally managed and without the need for additional infrastructure, or IT overhead, integrated into Mimecast Secure Email Gateway administration console.
    • Effective control and visible protection: Simple, efficient policy control and administrative monitoring and reporting.

    • Email Continuity
    • Advanced Service Management
    • Content Policy Gateway
    • Email Encryption and Privacy
  • Controlling the flow of sensitive information is a vital protection for intellectual property and compliance.

    Compliance requirements necessitate the use of extra layers of protection for sensitive information. In addition, a key element of security best practice is the ability to prevent confidential information from entering or leaving the business through email. It’s still far too easy for end users to maliciously or accidentally disclose sensitive, personal or confidential information to the outside world by email.

    Mitigating this vulnerability requires specialist gateway controls, which are not normally part of a standard email security service. Mimecast recognizes the importance of enhanced security and provides a Data Leak Prevention capability to enhance Secure Email Gateway features.  

    • Data Leak Prevention features further enhance the content controls provided by the Content Policy Gateway.
    • Compatible with document hashing for organizations that routinely hash their internal documents. Mimecast’s DLP add-on will detect MD5 and SHA256 hashes at the gateway, stopping those files from leaking.
    • Document metadata stripping and conversion is also available for users who require their Office file formats to be sanitized or converted to PDF prior to delivery by email.

    Data Leak Prevention is included in our M2A bundle and Email Security service.

  • Encrypt email and give users access to secure, private email controls.

    Email encryption was once a technology used by a minority of organizations, conducting their communications within encrypted channels. Today the demand for encryption of all email on the open Internet is significant as more businesses come to rely on their intellectual property and proprietary information as an asset. Encryption has also become a technical standard or best practice for those businesses required to protect their data and their users to the maximum extent technically possible.

    Mimecast Email Encryption and Privacy provides the ability to encrypt email in transit, as well as deploy more granular secure communications tools for those situations where confidentiality is of the upmost importance.

    • Encryption on the wire, with our policy-based transport layer security (TLS), gives you the ability to enforce TLS encryption for SMTP over the wider Internet.
    • Secure communications with third parties can be easily achieved with our Closed Circuit Messaging platform, which delivers automatic secure communications for external parties, without email ever transiting the Internet and without needing to share keys or install cumbersome software like PGP.
    • End user control of encryption, in line with defined policies, provides your most important users with the ability to direct email through the Mimecast encryption platform, from within Microsoft Outlook.

    Encryption and Privacy capabilities are included in our M2A bundle and Email Security service.

  • Secure your email and protect users from offensive content.

    Compliance, both internal and external, is often a key driver for enhanced levels of email content control within an organization’s email security policies. Email content controls can be defined in two categories; firstly the corporate control that is compliance-driven for regulation and looks for specific dictionaries of words or phrases. Secondly, the user protection control that is deployed to stop end users being exposed to offensive email content or images.

    Mimecast Content Policy Gateway features enhance the level of protection offered to your end users.

    • Quarantine email based on content with granular content checking policies that hold messages at the gateway for oversight and potential approval or continued containment.
    • Scan emails for profanity to protect users from abuse and inappropriate language in their corporate email inbox.
    • Scan email attachments for pornographic content to provide protection against potential litigious scenarios from staff exposed to inappropriate images while at work.
    • Scan for structured content or dictionarieswith a set of granular policy controls that allow you to scan emails and attachments based on the content of dictionaries or standardized regular-expression searchable terms.

    Content Policy Gateway capabilities are included in our M2A bundle. They work in conjunction with Attachment Management features to enable attachment content checking.

    • Message Recovery Servic and Metadata Track and Trace
  • Managing end users’ access to attachments in email starts at the gateway.

    Managing attachments in email is a foundation of most organizations’ email security policies. Mimecast’s Secure Email Gateway will hold dangerous attachments by default, but if you need greater control and flexible security policies to manage other types of attachments, this service is essential.

    Protecting your users from non-essential attachments is often more than just a security policy. There are measureable compliance and even productivity gains in defining the attachment types that groups of users have permission to send and receive. The Mimecast Secure Email Gateway with the Attachment Management option is able to detect any type of attachment in an email, and then react in a number of different ways based on the defined security policy.

    These capabilities are included in our M2A Bundle and Email Security service.

  • Send and receive large files without being restricted by attachment limits.

    Sending large files via email is a real problem, and has become a battle-ground between users and IT departments. Seeking to protect overall email system performance, IT teams routinely set limits on email size – but file sizes are growing, so users often struggle to share vital content with internal and external contacts.

    As a result, users inevitably seek out ways to bypass corporate gateways – turning to consumer applications to send and receive large file content. However, these services often lack policy enforcement or content checking, and even fewer archive the email and attachments for discovery and retrieval at a later date.

    IT departments need to retain control, but deliver a service that enables users to send large files while maintaining compliance and security.

    Mimecast Large File Send for PC and Mac users provides a fast and simple way to send and receive large files without being restricted by attachment limits of Exchange or Office 365. End users can remain productive without having to leave Outlook.

    • End users can send and receive large files through a secure and scalable email system bypass.
    • Attachments are secured with encryption, optional access key and custom expiration dates.
    • Files sent and received, and their associated notifications, are archived according to email retention policies.
    • File audit tracking is fast and easy, from a central location.
    • Data leak prevention can support compliance with corporate policies.
    • A comprehensive set of eDiscovery and compliance features can be applied to large files.
    • Large file traffic is removed from the email server environment.

    Large File Send is an optional add-on to our M2A bundle. It can also be deployed alongside our Secure Email Gateway.

  • Optimize end user self-service and productivity.

    Getting the most out of any technology solution means making end user interaction as seamless and intuitive as possible. Fitting in with the way your users already work and providing access from their favored device or email client is key and helps ensure the organization realizes maximum value.

    For Mimecast, the end user is central to the design and delivery of our services. Whether for security, archiving or continuity purposes, we offer a unique set of highly integrated and intuitive desktop and mobile apps. Employees can work smarter and respond more quickly whether in the office or on the road, while administrators retain full centralized control.

    End User Benefits

    • Instant email archive search from anywhere. Users can easily locate and access any email sent or received using highly intuitive search filters or simply browse their familiar mailbox folder structure*.
    • Continuous access to email. Users can continue to access, send, reply to and forward email even when primary email systems are not available – a powerful business continuity feature.
    • Self-service means greater productivity. The ability to find elusive messages, restore deleted emails*, and use admin controlled security settings, such as actioning quarantined messages and applying message encryption*, means employees can get more done, faster.
    • Simple access. Users don’t need to remember different login credentials as Mimecast integrates with Active Directory for authentication.

    Administrator Benefits

    While Mimecast empowers users, it also allows the IT department to retain full, centralized policy control – lessening the burden of everyday support and administration:
    • Granular permission controls allow system administrators to activate functions for individual employees or groups of users as required.
    • Centralized security and policy management means IT teams retain control over default settings.
    • Simple deployment and management through existing software management systems and app stores streamlines the roll out process for both the IT department and end users.
    • Lower IT overhead is achieved through functions such as user self-service for quarantine management and the recovery of lost or deleted items. This reduces the time IT departments spend on basic system administration tasks - freeing up resources for more strategic projects.

  • A sophisticated bridgehead in the cloud to support complex internal email infrastructures.

    Many organizations have a complex set of infrastructure requirements for email management, most of which are solutions to business problems that have arisen over years of operations. The solution has always been to deploy more infrastructure in support of these requirements, usually within the network. This is particularly true for the addition of new email servers over time, or the integration of new offices during acquisitions.

    Mimecast’s Advanced MTA Tools allow administrators to solve these problems without the need for additional infrastructure.

    • Solving inbound routing and traffic-splitting is easily achieved with Mimecast’s platform acting as your bridgehead in the cloud, routing email to distinct internal server destinations based on Active Directory group membership or attribute.
    • Solving email address or domain changes becomes a simple policy setting. This is particularly useful for acquisitive companies who need to quickly and publically change their outbound email address or domain presence, but without changing any hardware or software internally.
    Learn more about services to further enhance protection and functionality, including:
    • Email Continuity
    • Content Policy Gateway
  • Extend your gateway retention for even greater support, message tracking and administrative control.

    While pass-through zero drag in a secure email gateway may de-risk latency or privacy concerns, many email administrators demand a reasonable degree of message retention at the gateway - in order to support email administration and message track and trace for discovery and helpdesk queries.

    Mimecast’s Secure Email Gateway includes two important capabilities; services that will retain delivery metadata and message content specifically so administrators can monitor and manage their users’ email with more visibility and transparency.

    • Metadata Track and Trace provides 14 days of email metadata retention, including timestamps and source destination IP and SMTP conversation details. Administrators can access this content through our Track and Trace tools to help solve helpdesk issues and email delivery problems.
    The second capability is the Message Recovery Service.
    • Message Recovery Service enables email content retention; 58 days by default. All email content and metadata is retained in the Mimecast Secure Email Gateway for administrators, to help manage their email infrastructure and to enable other content-based service add-ons.
    Both of these capabilities are included in our M2A bundle.
