Impact in brief • 3 min read 

Mimecast

The cost of global cybercrime is expected to grow by 15% per year over the next five years, reaching a staggering $10.5 trillion annually by 2025. 

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.

MIMECAST + EDUCATION ALLIANCE

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.

“It’s difficult to protect educational institutions and being an organisation comprised of close to 7,000 people, there’s a lot that can go wrong,” says Matt Wadsworth, IT Director at The Education Alliance. “All it takes is one wrong click”.

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. 

 “It’s amazing that with Mimecast URL Protect you can directly block URLs and suddenly become aware of a domain in a link,” Wadsworth says. “Being able to easily block a domain in a URL is an important feature.”
