Ransomware Hurts

Mimic builds the leading enterprise defense against ransomware and cyber extortion

Fighting Extortion

We are exclusively focused on combating cyber extortion because we've seen its incredibly destructive impact on organizations. The effect of cyber extortion goes beyond mere disruption—it can devastate businesses, shut down hospitals putting lives in danger, and disrupt essential civil services like the water supply.

Our vision is a future where companies can operate free of the constant threat of cyber extortion - where paying ransoms to keep afloat is no longer the norm.

Mimic’s Approach is Unique in the Industry

Mimic’s new capability to detect and deflect ransomware so much earlier than traditional defenses is a huge step forward. The Mimic technology will allow incident responders the time they need to cut off threat actor access, knowing that their client is protected.

Ransomware is the highest priority problem for all CISOs in the Fortune 500 and Global 2000. We believe that Mimic’s unique approach to defending against these attacks will make it a required part of every company’s approach to security.
