Mimecast to showcase new AI capabilities at GITEX 2021


Mimecast, a leading email and cyber resilience company, will showcase its new artificial intelligence capabilities at GITEX Technology Week 2021. Mimecast CyberGraph is a new add-on for Mimecast Secure Email Gateway that is engineered to use artificial intelligence to help detect sophisticated phishing and impersonation attacks.

In Mimecast’s latest State of Email Security 2021 report, 55% of organisations in the Middle East reported an increase in phishing with malicious links or attachments. However, only half of organisations had safeguards in place, despite 86% being hurt by a lack of cyber preparedness in the past 12 months.

“The growing digitisation of personal and professional lives and the widespread adoption of new hybrid work models have created fertile ground for an acceleration in the volume and sophistication of cyber threats, forcing organisations to enhance their security posture,” says Werno Gevers, regional manager at Mimecast Middle East. “GITEX gives us an opportunity to highlight the role of tools such as artificial intelligence in a layered security strategy that aims to better protect businesses, employees and critical infrastructure from a rapidly evolving threat landscape.”

In addition to introducing attendees to Mimecast CyberGraph, the full range of Mimecast security services – including advanced email and web security solutions, brand protection capabilities and awareness training – will be showcased.

“Cybersecurity leaders in the region are tapping into a variety of solutions and tools available on the cybersecurity market to help them secure their digital transformation initiatives,” says Gevers. “We hope to educate organisations about our offering and demonstrate how we can help them in their cybersecurity journeys, with advanced security solutions that can protect them from cyber threats.”

Mimecast will be at the Bulwark stand, Stand H2-A2 in Hall 2 at GITEX.
