Impact in brief • 3 min read
Since the pandemic, one area that has been growing rapidly is ransomware. The frequency of these attacks has almost doubled since 2020.
Mimecast is acutely aware of this problem. As a global leader in threat protection, it offers targeted solutions helping to deter ransomware for a range of clients.
The ransomware epidemic has hit educational institutions extremely hard. This is particularly relevant to the Humber-based academic trust, The Education Alliance, which knew it needed a reliable way to protect their students – and fast.
In their search for a solution, The Education Alliance came across Mimecast. It didn’t take Wadsworth long to see that a single comprehensive package would help secure their students’ educational experience.
The Education Alliance went with a Mimecast package that included email security, URL Protection, attachment protection, and awareness training, among other benefits.
The benefits of the package kicked in pretty fast. Not long after installation, a student clicked on a malicious link. It got through the gateway – but Mimecast’s link protection blocked it from progressing any further.
