MimeCast Email Security

Cloud-based email security and threat intelligence platform

About MimeCast Email Security

MimeCast Email Security is a cloud-based secure email gateway designed to help businesses in healthcare, IT, legal, financial services, manufacturing, and other industries protect conversations from malware, spam, ransomware, spear-phishing, and zero-day attacks. Supervisors can monitor, detect and remediate internal threats by inspecting emails for malicious attachments, links, or confidential information.

MimeCast Email Security automatically remediates malicious emails or attachments from employee's inboxes and offers a unified administration console for businesses to configure, manage and report on email security metrics. The platform scans inbound emails to detect similarities across domains, header anomalies, email spoofing, and other threats in real-time. Businesses can also evaluate attached files to identify abnormal codes or embedded threats and utilize a dashboard to gain insights into targeted attacks.

Using MimeCast Email Security, administrators can discard or quarantine specific emails, manage, report, and discover attack campaigns, and protect conversations from cyber attacks related to thefts of money, credentials, customer data, and other intellectual property.

Great product that just works as expected. Easy to use and manage.

Email protection

Email protection

Pros

Mimecast is a great product overall and just works as expected. Because it is a SaaS offering, setup and config is quick and easy and the overall reliability has been everything we expected it to be. Mimecast has also continued to innovate and introduce new offerings to enhance our overall security which is key to staying ahead of the curve from our perspective.

Cons

The only con I have with Mimecast is that the administrative console is not the easiest to navigate and is often slow. While the end user facing components are easy to use and do not require much training, the admin portal seems designed by engineers with less end-user perspective. It is also much slower to navigate than other websites.

Overall, they have been easy to work with and have a robust solution. The rep we have is responsive and always helpful, which is nice. Support is generally good, though recent years have shown that its getting worse.

Pros

The level of granularity in policy creation while still being robust and easy to use.

Cons

Troubleshooting, although easier than some software, can be difficult to do via tracking. We've tried chasing down messages that triggered a policy despite being exempt, only to find it was some nuance of how that one policy worked.

MimeCast Email security provide some security regarding my email protection, but not total protection.

Pros

I have use this software as additional to protect and secure my email in the Microsoft Office 365. It is quite easy to use and i can setting it up independently by following the guides that are provided. It has protection over malicious email or spam email and block it from my main email inbox.

Cons

Even-tho there are filters for spam emails, the detection rate is not really the best as i still can see some of the spam email manage to be delivered to my main inbox. The email body and the title scream spam email, but unfortunately it can be detected by the filter is bothering me.

I'd like to point out that I am approaching this review from a user standpoint. I want to make it clear that I am not part of my company's IT team, and I am aware that this program has contributed to cleaning up our email server and preventing potentially dangerous/harmful emails from entering our network. As a user, I see somethings that could be fixed, but I know that it is overall doing it's intended job which is good enough for now.

Pros

As a user of this software, I like that I can retrieve ANY of my past emails, even if they have been deleted. It gives me peace of mind that nothing is permanent, and I can keep my inbox organized with minimal emails, knowing that I can access anything at any point. I also appreciate the Mimecast app - I don't have to keep my email on my phone and receive constant updates about what is happening while I am outside of the office. I can log into the Mimecast app at my leisure and see everything that is going on.

Cons

I just think it is clunky. It is slow, it doesn't always work, and it sometimes disappears from my computer. Seriously - I've had to download and redownload multiple times (with the help of my IT department). I am unsure if that is because of the software itself or because of it's relationship with Outlook and Citrix, but there are definitely some bugs to smooth out. I also think that the search function is not as easy to use as most search functions. It takes a lot of filtering and keyword searching to find what I am looking for, and sometimes it is an impossible job.

We have had great success with Mimecast. Our user base has really taken to the product, so much so that a few wondered what had happened to all of their spam!

Pros

Mimecast is very good at catching spam before it hits a user's inbox. It also has great features like attachment sandboxing which are eye opening.

Cons

Mimecast can be daunting to get set up initially; there are many different configuration screens which all work together. Configuring policies can be confusing, but support is quite capable and you should make use of that resource as you get things up and running.
