What makes Mimecast an attractive Barracuda Essentials replacement?
Companies choosing Mimecast as a Barracuda Essentials replacement can rely on Mimecast’s leading solutions to:
- Manage email easily. While many competing solutions are bolted together and provide only superficial console-level integration, Mimecast’s fully integrated solution makes it easy for administrators to manage security, archiving and continuity services throughout the organization from a single console. Additionally, Mimecast’s granular policy options enable policy management at the domain, group and user level, while competing solutions provide only domain level management.
- Defend against impersonation and fraud successfully. Many email security solutions rely solely on DMARC to perform domain spoofing checks. Because DMARC has been adopted by only 6% of organizations and 75% have not enforced it1, this limitation severely hinders an organization’s ability to defend against impersonation and fraud. While Mimecast includes DMARC enforcement as part of its multi-layered approach to security, it also provides numerous defenses against malicious URLs and attachments as well as internal attacks to provide comprehensive protection against impersonation attacks.
- Support security in hybrid environments. With Mimecast, organizations can easily secure hybrid environments, covering both on-premises Exchange and Exchange online, while many competitors only provide support for Microsoft Office 365.
