Mimecast to Present the Latest Email-borne Cyber Attacks at GITEX

Mimecast Limited has announced that it is participating in GITEX Technology Week 2017, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from October 8-12, 2017. The company will discuss how organizations can build a comprehensive cyber resilience strategy for email. Experts will also perform a live email hack, and will demonstrate how organizations can protect themselves against advanced cyberattacks, like spear-phishing and impersonation fraud with Mimecast’s range of services.

“Email continues to remain the attack vector for delivering security threats such as ransomware, impersonation, and malicious files or links. More than 90% of cyberattacks start in email and while email itself is seldom the end goal for the attackers, over 70% of these attacks lead to other systems in the network. These email attacks predominantly feature techniques such as spear-phishing, ransomware and impersonation of key employees,” said Mr. Brandon Bekker, Managing Director at Mimecast MEA.

Using GITEX 2017 as a platform, Mimecast will highlight how its cloud-based email security services and capabilities of Targeted Threat Protection including Internal Email Protect, a cloud-based security service providing threat capabilities for internally generated email, helps reduce the risk, complexity and costs traditionally associated with protecting email.
Mimecast’s security experts will discuss the top email attack strategies being used by cybercriminals and demonstrate how they work by performing a series of live hacks for visitors at the stand throughout the duration of the 5-day event.

Mimecast is exhibiting at Stand D1-42 in Hall 1. Senior global executives and security experts from the company will be available to meet with customers and partners and share their global experiences, expertise and successes with them.
