Mimecast launches protection solution in collaboration with Microsoft

March 8, 2024



Mimecast has announced the launch of Mimecast Protection for Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive.

Building on the Mimecast Protection for Microsoft Teams product launched last year, these expanded offerings enable Mimecast customers to Work Protected across the modern work surface where collaboration tools are critical platforms.

While email security continues to be the primary entry point for threat actors to enter an organisation, the forthcoming Mimecast research report “State of Email and Collaboration Security 2024” found that 70% of IT and cybersecurity professionals believe collaboration tools pose urgent, new threats to their organization. 

Mimecast reports its expanded collaboration security solutions will help businesses get in front of this concern and protect employees across all communications platforms.

Mimecast adapting to hybrid work

“As businesses continue adjusting to the world of hybrid work, critical platforms like the SharePoint and OneDrive tools are not only driving new opportunities for collaboration, but they’re also creating new threat vectors for bad actors,” said David Mitchell, VP of Product Management, Mimecast.

“At Mimecast, we recognise that the shifting cyber landscape is creating an expanded attack surface and our new collaboration security products extend our best-in-class email protection to these increasingly targeted and often vulnerable tools.”

These expanded capabilities will allow employees to store, share and collaborate on documents securely within the SharePoint and OneDrive platforms.

With near real-time scanning of new files and scanning of recently edited files, the Mimecast solutions help keep dangerous content out of IT environments while also defending against zero-day threats, Mimecast says.
