Dubai, UAE – April 30, 2018 – Mimecast Limited (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, will address the growing issue of targeted cyberattacks at this year’s Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference, taking place from 1-3 May 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Mimecast will highlight the continuous challenges organisations face in defending against malicious attachments, dangerous file types, impersonation attacks and spam to help provide customers with Cyber Resilience for Email.

By showcasing its full-range of advanced email security and data protection services, including new enhancements to Targeted Threat Protection, Mimecast will highlight the importance of building a cyber resilience strategy in an evolving cyber threat landscape. Cyber resilience expert, Hany George, will give a talk and perform live hacks to reveal simple techniques that hackers use to infiltrate organisations. These demonstrations will show how organisations can protect themselves against advanced cyberattacks like impersonation fraud.

According to Mimecast’s recent quarterly Email Security Risk Assessment (ESRA) report, incumbent email security systems are not providing sufficient security protection against known malware and impersonation attacks. It highlighted that 23,072 impersonation attacks were caught – increasing 22 percent in comparison quarter over quarter.

Additionally, a new study from Mimecast and Vanson Bourne, which will be shared at GISEC, found that 40 percent of the 800 responding IT-decision makers saw an increase in impersonation attacks over the past 12 months. Mimecast will therefore be unveiling new enhancements to its Targeted Threat Protection services - Impersonation Protect, URL Protect, and Internal Email Protect – to combat and remediate the evolving threat landscape.

“A defence-only security strategy does not protect against the level and volume of advanced attacks that lead to financial and intellectual property loss, unplanned downtime and decreased productivity,” said Brandon Bekker, Managing Director at Mimecast MEA.

“We encourage our customers to embrace a cyber resilience for email strategy that empowers them to secure, preserve and continue the flow of information via email. Despite investments in defence, attackers continue to innovate, developing advanced email-borne threats that are no match for defence systems. Mimecast will use the region’s largest security conference to educate IT decision makers about the need to provide comprehensive security controls before, continuity during, and automated recovery after an attack,” Bekker added.

Mimecast is exhibiting at stand C13A and will host two live hacks each day.
