Furthermore, when you partner with Mimecast, you can quickly and affordably establish a cyber resilience strategy for your email environment. The power of our security capabilities and threat intelligence, combined with the ability to add services in real-time, creates a powerful and easy to manage solution that reduces the complexity of protecting your organisation from an array of sophisticated attacks.

Companies today are in an arms race with cyber criminals. But these criminals are savvy and sophisticated, with extensive resources and business plans. Fighting this fight requires a different approach. With Mimecast, you can secure your email environment with unlimited capacity and power, delivering greater accuracy without the cost and complexity of traditional offerings.

No matter how sophisticated your email protection solution is, the hacker community always seems to be a step ahead. Only a fifth of IT decision makers in large multinational corporations are confident that their organisation is fully prepared against the threat of cyber criminals. That’s because today’s cybercriminal world is now industrialised. Names like Zero Day, WannaCry, and Cryptolocker are in the headlines. Cyber criminals share information and collaborate, and form large underground networks in an anonymous fashion. They learn the intricate aspects of various platforms so they can quickly identify weaknesses. For example, hackers can easily sign up for an Office 365 account and use it as a training ground for new attacks.

No matter how sophisticated your email protection solution is, the hacker community always seems to be a step ahead, here’s how Mimecast and CDW can help.

This provides customers with a multi‐layered inspection system that is effective against both widely used, commodity attacks as well as highly targeted attacks.
