Mimecast has seen firsthand that not all email security systems perform equally well. But, until now, we’ve lacked the comparative data to prove our perceptions. In order to address this head-on, Mimecast has launched the Email Security Risk Assessment (ESRA). The Mimecast ESRA has three goals:
1. To test the Mimecast cloud security service against an individual organization’s incumbent email security system. To help the organization understand the relative efficacy of the security systems and to see the number, type and severity of email-borne threats that are currently getting into the organization.
2. To inform the security industry with hard data on the effectiveness of various commonly-deployed email security systems.
3. To inform the security industry with hard data regarding the number, type and severity of email-borne threats that are being actively used in attacks.
