Mimecast to exhibit at Gitex 2016 with distributor Bulwark
Data security vendor Mimecast announced that it is participating in Gitex Technology Week 2016 along with its distributor Bulwark Technologies. The company plans to showcase its full range of email and data security solutions and services, and demonstrate how it can protect customers against spear phishing and whaling attacks with its Targeted Threat Protection service at the exhibition.
Mimecast will promote Mimecast Email Security, Mailbox Continuity and Enterprise Information Archiving solutions at Gitex 2016. The company will also showcase its email security cloud service designed to protect customers from the growing threat from email attacks known as CEO fraud, business email compromise or whaling. The service, known as Impersonation Protect extends Mimecast’s Targeted Threat Protection, the company’s email security protection.
Mimecast will also be hosting an event aimed at teaching business decision makers about the importance of building a human firewall by not only deploying advanced security technology, but by educating their employees on how to interrogate their emails and protect the business and themselves from becoming a victim of cyber crime.
“Our recently released research reveals that organisations globally believe that they are their own worst enemy when it comes to cyber security, with 45% saying they are ill-equipped to cope with the threat of malicious insiders and 90% calling malicious insiders a major threat to the organisations’ security. Email continues to remain the attack vector of choice for cyber criminals, where they are constantly evolving their tactics to breach the organisation’s security by bypassing traditional email security defences. This holds true for all organisations including those in the Middle East,” said Brandon Bekker, Managing Director at Mimecast MEA.
“At Gitex 2016, our security experts will discuss the top email attack strategies being used by cyber criminals and demonstrate how these work by performing a series of live hacks for visitors at our stand. We plan to highlight how our cloud based email security services and our capabilities of Targeted Threat Protection, help reduce the risk, complexity and costs traditionally associated with protecting email. We look forward to meeting our existing and prospective customers and partners and scout for new partners in countries where we do not have a strong presence,” added Bekker.
