Oral Roberts University Enrolls Mimecast to Defend Against Crippling Email Attacks

Case Study

Published February 2024


Securing 1,000 employee email accounts is no easy task for the team at Oral Roberts University. Add in anywhere from 4,000- 5,000 full-time enrolled students – and countless alumni accounts – and you have a prime target for threat actors. Especially working with a hybrid environment across Microsoft Exchange and Office 365.

“It’s harder to control university email accounts because it’s a revolving door every four years,” said Ron Lee, Director of Infrastructure and Cybersecurity at Oral Roberts. “On top of staff, there’s a fresh crop of students every year who may not be thinking in terms of responsible cybersecurity habits.” And that’s exactly why they turned to Mimecast to revamp their email security strategy.
