Mimecast Wins Two XCellence Awards at the 2016 Midsize Enterprise Summit East

Watertown, MA – May 26, 2016 (Business Wire) – Mimecast Limited (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, today announced  it has won two XCellence Awards – “Best of Show” and “Best Boardroom Case Study Presentation” – at The Channel Company’s Midsize Enterprise Summit (MES) East. The CIOs and senior IT executives attending the annual event determine the XCellence Awards winners, voting for the most distinguished midmarket products, services, programs and presentations. The award reflects Mimecast’s continued commitment to providing innovative services designed to accelerate ROI for the midmarket.

Mimecast was recognized for its presentation educating CIOs on security topics, like whaling and spear-phishing, and outcomes they can achieve by securing their organizations using solutions like Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection.

“Organizations of all sizes need to defend themselves against cybercrime. Attack methods like whaling and spear-phishing are not just enterprise-level threats,” said Himanshu Patel, director of field and channel marketing, Mimecast. “The good news is, Mimecast gives midsized firms the tools they need to fight email-based attacks, despite often limited budget and resources.”

“An MES XCellence award represents a stamp of approval from the midmarket community,” said Lisa MacKenzie, senior vice president of events, The Channel Company. “We congratulate this year’s winners for their knowledge and commitment to the midmarket, and look forward to their continued success.”

The Channel Company hosted the Midsize Enterprise Summit East at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis from May 1-3. Hundreds of midmarket CIOs and senior-level IT decision-makers gathered to meet with top technology vendors and Gartner industry analysts to forge new contacts and discuss technology’s role in the midmarket landscape. Through content developed in cooperation with Gartner, attendees learned new business-building strategies and explored industry best practices that will help them exceed their organizations’ IT goals.
