To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and help keep our communities safe throughout the globe, last week Mimecast suspended all cross-border travel, limited domestic travel and advised employees to postpone events with 15 or more people. At that time, we also strongly encouraged our employees around the world to work remotely.
Given the continued and escalating global concerns around COVID-19, as well as elevated mitigations outlined by several governments this past weekend, we have taken the decision to close all our offices and enforce a work from home situation. This started yesterday in our North American offices with the balance of our offices starting today, March 17, at 5 p.m. in each region.
These are extremely difficult times as we face an unprecedent public health crisis leading to potential business and personal disruptions. Our support teams will continue to be available, leveraging the ‘follow the sun’ model, allowing all global regions the ability to support customers, partners and each other. Through our corporate technology investments, we will continue to be open for business virtually in all functions at Mimecast.
I want to reiterate that our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by the COVID-19 virus in any way. The health and safety of our employees, customers and partners and their families is one of our deepest concerns during this time.
I’ll keep in touch,
