Mime­cast show­cased its range of email and data se­cu­rity so­lu­tions

Ef­fec­tive pro­tec­tion against ran­somware

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -


Mime­cast Lim­ited (NAS­DAQ: MIME), a lead­ing email and data se­cu­rity com­pany, par­tic­i­pated in the Gart­ner Se­cu­rity and Risk Man­age­ment Sum­mit 2016. The com­pany show­cased its full-range of email and data se­cu­rity so­lu­tions and ser­vices at the event, which was held from Oc­to­ber 31st to Novem­ber 1stat the Raf­fles Ho­tel Dubai. As a speaker at the con­fer­ence, Matthew Gar­diner, Se­nior Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of Mime­cast, ad­dressed the im­pact of ran­somware on busi­nesses, the rea­sons why at­tacks through ran­somware have been in­creas­ing in re­cent months and how or­ga­ni­za­tions could de­fend them­selves against a ran­somware at­tack and pro­tect them­selves in the cur­rent se­cu­rity land­scape. “No or­ga­ni­za­tion is im­mune to a ran­somware at­tack and busi­nesses are in­creas­ingly be­ing held hostage by cy­ber­crim­i­nals.

In re­cent months, much of the mal­ware be­ing blocked by Mime­cast for our cus­tomers has been ran­somware, which is a huge num­ber. Given the crit­i­cal­ity of busi­ness as­sets, dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture, or even safety of life in some cases, many busi­nesses are forced to pay the ran­som,” said Matthew Gar­diner, Se­nior Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of Mime­cast. “At the Se­cu­rity and Risk Man­age­ment Sum­mit 2016, we shared in­sights on the se­ri­ous threat ran­somware poses, why there has been a sig­nif­i­cant rise in ran­somware at­tacks and dis­cuss how a three-pronged strat­egy of preven­tion, busi­ness con­ti­nu­ity and email ar­chiv­ing could help de­feat ran­somware before it takes the busi­ness hostage,” Mr. Gar­diner added.

The key to ran­somware pro­tec­tion is twofold: de­ploy­ing email se­cu­rity so­lu­tions for ran­somware de­tec­tion, and main­tain­ing up-tothe-minute back­ups and ar­chives of email data. Mime­cast pro­vides both se­cu­rity and ar­chiv­ing so­lu­tions to pro­tect against ran­somware. Mime­cast high­lighted how its cloud­based email se­cu­rity ser­vices and its ca­pa­bil­i­ties of Tar­geted Threat Pro­tec­tion helps Mid­dle East or­ga­ni­za­tions re­duce the risk, com­plex­ity and costs tra­di­tion­ally as­so­ci­ated with pro­tect­ing email.

The Gart­ner Se­cu­rity and Risk Man­age­ment Sum­mit 2016 pro­vided or­ga­ni­za­tions with the proven prac­tices and strate­gies they need to main­tain cost-ef­fec­tive se­cu­rity and risk pro­grams to sup­port dig­i­tal busi­ness and drive en­ter­prise suc­cess. The event fea­tured com­pre­hen­sive tracks to drill down on the hottest se­cu­rity and risk man­age­ment top­ics based on par­tic­i­pants’ role, ex­pe­ri­ence level and key fo­cus. Mime­cast was ex­hibit­ing at booth #942, where vis­i­tors were able to meet and in­ter­act with some of Mime­cast’s top solution ex­perts.
