Mimecast Given 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2016 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the best channel partner programs in the U.S. market

Watertown, MA – May 10, 2016 Mimecast (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Mimecast a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

Mimecast’s inclusion in the CRN 5-Star Program Guide serves as a testament to the company’s superior support and recognized ability to cultivate trusted and lucrative partnerships. The Mimecast North American partner program is focused on driving partners’ business development and offers solutions to construct recurring revenue streams with high margin opportunities, renewal protection and dedicated marketing support. The company provides comprehensive value to its partners and customers by offering email security, continuity and archiving services that directly address today’s complex threat landscape and the need for companies to have constant access to their data.

“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”

“Being recognized in the CRN 5-Star Partner Guide is validation of our commitment to our extensive partner network,” said Sean Broderick, director of channels, North America, Mimecast. “This recognition comes at a time when 67% of firms have seen a spike in whaling attacks in the last three months alone. Now more than ever, it’s critical that partner organizations choose a cloud-based security provider that has the advanced technology needed to defend their customers against the major increase in sophisticated, email-based threats. With our industry-first Impersonation Protect solution for whaling protection as just one example, Mimecast continues to demonstrate a commitment to technology innovation and supporting our partners with their important role of delivering superior protection to customers.” 

The 2016 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the February issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg2016.
