Mimecast Joins IBM Security Exchange

Mimecast has launched Mimecast for IBM QRadar, which integrates email security data into IBM’s security intelligence technology. The new Mimecast for IBM QRadar app is designed to offer joint customers improved visibility into potential vulnerabilities and ongoing attacks occurring via email, enabling prioritized incident response through one single console and an increased security posture.

The threat landscape is constantly evolving, yet email continues to be one of the top attack vectors. Cyber threats are becoming stealthier and sophisticated, and are designed to evade detection. The Mimecast for IBM QRadar app is designed to offer organizations better detection and deeper insights before, during and after an attack. Integrating Mimecast data into the QRadar system through the Mimecast data logging API is engineered to allow email security data to be correlated against other data sources, and be included in behavioral anomaly detection helping to identify indicators of advanced threats that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Leveraging Mimecast’s new open application programming interface (API), the Mimecast for IBM QRadar app is engineered to allow Mimecast and IBM customers to better predict and prioritize what threats to remediate by providing greater visibility into potential incidents.

“Attack methods are quickly evolving and growing more advanced, targeted and dangerous. Organizations are seeking out solutions to augment a defense strategy, but at the same time are challenged with siloed security products which offer little-to-no visibility, which makes it increasingly difficult to ensure they are identifying incoming threats and prioritizing investigations,” said Christina Van Houten, Chief Strategy Officer, Mimecast. “Mimecast’s integration with IBM QRadar technology gives joint customers the visibility they need to help speed up the incident response process by cutting down the ‘noise’ with prioritized in-depth forensic analysis, all through one central security console.”

As threats are evolving faster than ever, collaborative development amongst the security community will help organizations adapt quickly and speed innovation in the fight against cybercrime. The new application is freely available through IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies.
