    Mimecast Web Security

    The web is a critical tool for organizations of all types and sizes, and its usage grows by the day. Unfortunately, so do the risks. Bring-your-own-device, the anytime and anywhere workplace, and the unrelenting volume of activity make protecting the web an ever-evolving challenge. However, with web being the second-most commonly used vector for cyberattacks* and the top distraction for employees at work, security and visibility are essential.

    Mimecast Web Security protects against malicious web activity initiated by user action or malware and blocks business-inappropriate websites based on customer-configured policies and Mimecast’s threat intelligence capabilities. Easy to deploy and manage, it gives you the technology needed to keep the web safe, delivered in the most cost-effective and least complex way possible.
