Mimecast Wins Bronze in Best in Biz Awards 2013
Impressive growth milestones support Company of the Year award win
Watertown, MA – Mimecast has been named a bronze winner in the Company of the Year Medium Sized Businesses category for the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
In 2013, Mimecast celebrated its ten year anniversary, and the company has achieved significant employee and financial growth during this time. In 2012, the company received $62 million in Series C funding that supported further geographical expansion, particularly in the U.S., and solidified its position as a leading cloud email archiving and security provider. Mimecast opened a new, larger North American headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. The company also chose two growing U.S. cities to open offices – Dallas and Chicago – and expanded operations in San Francisco. Over the course of the year, Mimecast also increased its U.S. employee base to represent a third of the company’s overall global workforce.
The third annual Best in Biz Awards program, focusing on companies based or operating in North America, was the most competitive in its history, with the highest number of awards submissions to date and the most distinguished judging panel yet assembled. More than 500 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.
“2013 has been a pivotal year for Mimecast’s employees, customers and partners and we are thrilled to receive this recognition from the Best in Biz Awards,” said Mark Bilbe, General Manager, Mimecast North America.
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2013 were determined by an independent panel of 50 judges from top-tier news, business and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms.
