    What is Supply Chain Security?

    A supply chain attack is a strategy used by cybercriminals, where they break into a less secure network in order to infiltrate others that may be better defended. Cybercriminals want to use the attack as a doorway into other companies that are their real targets. As businesses outsource more and more of their activities, they become more vulnerable to this type of exploit. Consequently, supply chain attacks are on the rise.

    Multiple forms of protection, designed to complement each other

    A complete approach to safeguarding business systems, employees and reputation

    Cybercriminals will exploit everything they can — including a company’s commitment to being a great business partner. They’ll impersonate you, your customers, and your suppliers to exploit the brand reputation you’ve taken years or decades to build. Supply chain attacks have emerged in recent years as a growing, spreading menace: Nearly half (47%) of respondents to Mimecast’s State of Email Security 2021 (SOES) survey saw an increase in phishing emails making fraudulent use of their company’s brands.

    Mimecast can help you resist all forms of supply chain attacks, to protect your email, technical infrastructure, brand and employees.

    Protect business partners against domain spoofing that exploits your brand
