Enterprise organisations leveraging the integration gain search and correlation capabilities across all log types to better detect and respond to advanced cyber threats.

According to Jules Martin, vice-president, ecosystem and alliances at Mimecast, business email compromises, spear-phishing attempts and the rise of ransomware are among the biggest challenges IT and security teams face.

Email threats are becoming harder to stop and proliferating each day,” Martin said.


“Our integration with Humio helps provide organisations increased visibility with live searches and real time dashboards, empowering threat hunting teams to find potentially malicious activity before it lands in an inbox.

Incident response teams are empowered to work faster, a vital benefit when containing incidents before they become a full-scale breach.”

Humio’s unique architecture is designed to enable customers to log everything and miss nothing, allowing joint customers to ingest Mimecast logs with other log sources that include infrastructure, network and software.

The software aims to provide customers with complete visibility across their threat landscape, coupled with fast search performance and comprehensive query language, enabling threat hunters to quickly ask any questions of their data.

Humio’s real-time alerts and comprehensive API make it easy to integrate with leading cyber-security platforms for efficient and automated response actions, which can be utilised to modify parameters within Mimecast for preventative protection.

According to Matthew Polly, vice-president, worldwide alliances, channel and business development at CrowdStrike, enterprise organisations need to move fast and have all relevant information at their disposal to avoid a devastating breach, when responding to advanced cyber threats.

“Teamwork in security is essential in keeping threat actors at bay. We are thrilled for this latest integration with Mimecast as our joint customers will benefit from our blazing fast search capabilities to the number one attack vector, email,” Polly said.
