About Us

“We’re building an information bank - a safer and more useful place for businesses to put their human-generated data – providing compliance and security for IT departments and productivity tools for end users.”

Mimecast is a single cloud platform for all your email and information management needs.

Protect-store-interact-exploit Mimecast Information Platform

Mimecast helps organizations and businesses of all sizes to protect their users and data from security threats, and to archive all their human-generated data - from voice, through email, to files and IM - in a compliant, cloud-based archive.

While our archiving and security solutions can be purchased separately, and appear in their respective Gartner Magic Quadrants, what makes Mimecast unique is our platform. Massively scalable, and with industry-leading search performance, the Mimecast platform is innovative because it gives customers a single repository for all their unstructured information.

When businesses entrust Mimecast with their security and their data, they get a powerful solution. A solution that meets their security, storage management and compliance needs today, and which will effortlessly scale to meet their aspirations for end user productivity and information management tomorrow.

Removing complexity

Mimecast was founded with the goal of simplifying the management of complex email systems - removing the need for expensive point solutions managed on-site and replacing them with a single cloud-based application.

Today, we continue to make our customers’ lives easier, by providing enterprise class security and archiving services for on premises, hybrid, or cloud-based messaging environments – services that enhance both Microsoft Exchange and Office 365.

As well as removing the need for on-site services and appliances, we take away the need for personal cloud applications and other tools that clutter the enterprise IT environment, and which add risk, complexity and cost.

Custom-built from the ground up

Unlike our major competitors, Mimecast products, services and platform have been built from the ground up over the course of a decade, rather than assembled through acquisition.

This allows us to provide our customers with a seamless experience, unparalleled levels of integration, and of course a single point of contact for service and support.

Delivering the ultimate customer experience

Customer experience is at the heart of Mimecast’s approach to business. Going beyond the simple notion of customer service, we aim to provide a smooth, simple and enjoyable experience to our customers - from the first conversation through implementation and after-sales service, to the individual user’s experience in Outlook or on a mobile device.
