Mimecast wins Best of SaaS Showplace Award
Mimecast®, an enterprise email management company offering SaaS-based email security, continuity, policy control and archiving, today announced that it had been named the latest winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program by THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market. The award is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. The BoSS Awards is an ongoing program which recognizes SaaS companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability. Mimecast is a SaaS-based Unified Email Management (UEM) company which provides cloud-based email security, continuity, policy control and archiving which requires no customer hardware, software or capital expense.
The typical stack of email technologies; gateways, anti-spam systems, email archives, continuity facilities, email marketing, policy control and virus protection, are all replaced by the Mimecast service, hosted in the cloud. The following are examples of Mimecasts’s measurable business benefits:
- Altour, one of the largest travel companies in the U.S., avoided spending more than $75,000 on additional email back-up hardware by deploying the Mimecast solution.
- The Boston Celtics reduced the administrative time spent on email management by 5x and its overall email management operating costs by 25%.
- Brown & Brown Protector Insurance Plans reduced the time it spend to complete e-Discovery queries from 8 hours to only 90 minutes. Its team can now retrieve archived email 5x faster, and has improved data integrity 100 percent.
- Permanent General, an auto insurance provider, saves $100,000 annually using the Mimecast UEM solution.
- Rockline Industries, a manufacturer of private label coffee filters and baby wipes, has saved 75% of the projected cost of multiple on-premise point solutions.
- The University of Tennessee Medical Center has reduced its email costs by 60 percent, and has gained additional disaster recovery and policy management capabilities.
It is for these reasons that Mimecast has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner. A summary of the company's winning BoSS Award submission can be found at www.saas-showplace.com/awardSummary.php?key=817
