Yesterday, at Black Hat 2019, Mimecast Limited, a leading email and data security company, introduced Mimecast Threat Intelligence which offers a deeper understanding of the cyber threats faced by organizations.

The cybersecurity landscape changes daily, and attackers are constantly changing their techniques to avoid detection. According to Mimecast’s recent State of Email Security Report 2019, 94% of organizations saw phishing attacks in the last 12 months and 61% said it was likely or inevitable that they would be hit with an email-borne attack.

The new features in Mimecast Threat Intelligence are designed to give organizations access to threat data and analytics specific to overall organization. Additionally it offers a granular view of the attacks blocked by Mimecast.

The Mimecast Threat Intelligence dashboard highlights users who are most at-risk, malware detections, malware origin by geo-location, Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) and malware forensics based on static and behavioral analysis. The data is consolidated into a user-friendly view and will be available for integration into an organization’s security ecosystem through the Threat Feed API.


This targeted threat intelligence will provide greater visibility and insight to security professionals, enabling them to easily respond and remediate against threats and malicious files.

“As the threat landscape evolves, arming our organization and people with the best possible tools is more important now than ever,” said Thomas Cronkright, CEO at CertifID. “Mimecast’s Threat Intelligence is a unique, incredibly easy to use value-added service that provides an outstanding benefit to organizations in search of a secure ecosystem.”

“The cyber threat landscape is dynamic, complex and driven by a relentless community of adversaries. IT and security teams need threat intelligence that is easy to digest and actionable, so they can better leverage the information to proactively prevent and defend against cyberattacks,” said Josh Douglas, Vice President of threat intelligence at Mimecast. “Mimecast sees a lot of data, as we process more than 300 million emails every day to help customers block hundreds of thousands of malicious emails. Mimecast Threat Intelligence helps organizations get the deep insights they need to build a more cyber resilient environment.”

Mimecast Threat Intelligence consists of a Threat Dashboard, Threat Remediation and Threat Feed with Threat Intelligence APIs. To know more, check out this page on Mimecast Threat Intelligence.
