Miles & Stockbridge Law Firm Gains Efficiencies with Cloud-Based Unified Email Management by Mimecast
Newton, Mass.– Mimecast, a holistic email management company offering SaaS-based email archiving, continuity and security, today announced Maryland-based law firm Miles & Stockbridge P.C. is reaping the benefits of selecting Mimecast’s cloud-based email management with a 50 percent improvement in cost savings, in addition to freeing up IT resources. Miles & Stockbridge employed Mimecast’s service throughout its eight offices to handle archiving, continuity, security and storage.
In today’s corporate climate of rampant cost and resource reductions, more companies are turning to cloud-based computing to satisfy their business needs of best-in-class technology, while still creating cost savings and efficiency. Miles & Stockbridge needed an email management solution that could simplify the disparate and draining IT solutions across its eight offices. Mimecast’s SaaS-based Unified Email Management was able to replace four separate solutions for security, continuity, information management and policy-keeping by consolidating the management of the four solutions into one. Miles & Stockbridge realized an instant decrease in IT cost with Mimecast’s holistic approach.
“Mimecast provided the services of three or four different products in one holistic solution,” said Ken Adams, CIO for Miles & Stockbridge. “When we implemented Mimecast’s SaaS service for email management, the cost savings on the software alone was a 50 percent improvement at least, but this was second to the amount of IT administration time we saved with Mimecast. The management of those four different programs was more costly to my department than the money I spent in software licensing. With Mimecast, there is nothing for me to manage. We are very pleased.”
IDC predicts a 33 percent compounded annual growth rate in hosted messaging security services to meet escalating IT demands. Since governance, risk management and compliance are intrinsically linked, IDC reports, organizations are looking for messaging solutions that integrate the policy enforcement, hygiene, continuity, retention and discovery issues related to email.1 For Miles & Stockbridge, a comprehensive, holistic solution is not a luxury; it’s a necessity.
“We applaud Miles & Stockbridge for taking an innovative approach to email management. A holistic, SaaS-based service tackles the email management issues companies like Miles & Stockbridge are dealing with by bringing increased efficiency and cost savings, while still providing a leading solution to meet their needs,” said Mary Kay Roberto, senior vice president and general manager of Mimecast North America. “Reducing the firm’s risk of costly litigation and business downtime, and doing so while keeping cost savings in mind, is paramount.”
