Mimecast has been recognized by two leading midmarket IT organizations for providing email services in the cloud that meet the specific needs of medium-sized businesses. At the spring Midmarket CIO Forum, Mimecast was named “Best Vendor, Service,” and at the Midsize Enterprise Summit East, the company was awarded “Best Midsize Enterprise Summit Newcomer.”
As cyber-attacks on businesses happen on a seemingly regular basis now, it has become clear that no organization, regardless of size, is safe. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), the number of U.S. data breaches tracked in 2014 hit a “record high” of 783, a figure that represents a substantial hike of 27.5 percent over the number of breaches reported in 2013. In particular, recent high-profile attacks have taught us that mid- or smaller-sized businesses are often a target of those trying to attack larger organizations, as they are seen as a soft way to infiltrate a supply chain.
Bekim Protopapa, General Manager, North America at Mimecast said: “Midmarket businesses must pay attention to their data security and deal with the same email-related risks as larger enterprises they need to improve email security, protect data and prevent the threat from new attacks, like spear-phishing, but on a smaller budget and with limited IT resources.”
“Mimecast helps midmarket businesses get out of the business of running email on multiple point solutions, which can be costly, complex and eat-up valuable IT resources. We provide comprehensive security, archiving and continuity services for email in the cloud that allows businesses of all sizes to get the protection they need without prohibitive cost.”
Mimecast (mimecast.com) makes business email and data safer for more than 13,000 customers and millions of employees worldwide. Founded in 2003, the Company’s cloud-based security, archiving and continuity services protect email, and deliver comprehensive email risk management in a single, fully-integrated subscription service. Mimecast reduces email risk and eliminates the complexity and cost of managing the array of point solutions traditionally used to protect email and its data. For customers that have migrated to cloud services like Microsoft Office 365, Mimecast mitigates single vendor exposure by strengthening security coverage, combating downtime and improving archiving.
Mimecast Email Security protects against malware, spam, advanced phishing and other emerging attacks, while preventing data leaks. Mimecast Mailbox Continuity ensures employees can continue using email during planned and unplanned outages. Mimecast Information Archiving unifies email, file and Instant Messaging data to support e-discovery and give employees fast access to their personal archive via PC, Mac and mobile apps.
