At Atlas Cloud, we’re one of the only providers of Mimecast in the North East, and have partnered with them to provide web security products for our customers across the UK. Mimecast have established themselves as experts in email protection and now they have applied this expertise to the world of web protection in order to add an extra layer of cyber resilience.
Mimecast Web Security is designed to protect against advanced phishing and malware attacks that come via web, instant messaging systems, social network sites and advert networks. It allows customers to expand and improve their protection levels from attacks which occur via the web and email. It is available for both Microsoft Windows and Mac operating systems and uses the same administration console as Mimecast’s Secure Email Gateway giving you one single integrated service.
The rise of cyber-attacks means ensuring the security of your IT infrastructure can now be a full time job. The stats around cyber crime are worrying with 99% of malware being deployed by email or the web (source: Verizon 2018) and with 91% of malware using the web to function once it lands (source: Cisco Cybersecurity Report 2018). When you add human error into the equation the picture gets worse with 32% of organisations saying they weren’t confident their employees could spot and defend against malware or ransomware attacks (source: Vanson Bourne).
A lot of companies have purchased web protection tools which will block access to undesirable websites. Software such as firewalls, Unified Threat Management (UTM) systems, endpoint software or web appliances (proxies/gateways) are the traditional methods but they might no longer be enough. Sophisticated hackers can now insert malicious links on what many would consider acceptable sites/areas:

If you use Microsoft 365 and want employees to work both securely and productively in or out of the office, Atlas Cloud could be the managed service provider for you.
We specialise in using Microsoft 365 and Azure-based cloud services. We also know a thing or two about complimentary services that keep people working productively.
Our UK-based Service Desk is manned by qualified engineers, not call handlers, so we can resolve issues faster. We track and publicly publish our Service Desk satisfaction using the popular NPS system. We also proactively respond to any negative feedback, with the aim of stopping any reoccurrences.
We regularly track an average score NPS considered to be ‘world class’.
Since we began over ten years ago, we’ve always aimed to fix everything remotely (from within the UK) to cut the costs of expensive travel and engineer day rates.
Of course, we can offer on-site assistance where required.
If you use or are looking to adopt Microsoft 365 and/or Azure technologies, it makes sense to work with a specialist and not a generalist.
As a long-established Microsoft partner, Atlas Cloud can help map your Microsoft journey.
Public-sector organisations in the UK will be relieved to know we are G-Cloud 12 approved.
Private-sector organisations may be encouraged to hear we adhere to UK Government standards in pricing, processes and security.
