Mimecast works with Cable&Wireless to offer increased email functionality to hosted Exchange environments
London - Mimecast®, an email management company offering SaaS-based email archiving, continuity, security and policy control, today announced it has formed an alliance with Cable&Wireless Worldwide, one of the world’s leading communication companies. The partnership is a significant step in the development of the Mimecast Partner Program. Cable&Wireless has integrated the Mimecast service to complement its current hosted Microsoft Exchange offering.
Julian Martin, Business Development Director at Mimecast, discusses the benefits of this Partnership, “The timing of the approach was perfect as Mimecast was seeking a partner that could provide a solid, fully hosted Exchange environment, a requirement that has been frequently requested by our enterprise prospects and clients. We know email is mission critical, but can be a huge drain on resource when incorrectly delivered in-house, so by partnering with Cable&Wireless, customers have an alternative and are now able to reduce the burden of managing Exchange and still enjoy the added business benefits of the Mimecast service.”
Cable&Wireless customers can already benefit from a managed solution for Microsoft Exchange that facilitates mobility and provides customers with anytime, anywhere access to email, shared calendars, tasks and folders, while fully safeguarding sensitive corporate and employee information. The resilient and scalable service includes hardware implementation, hosting, licensing, virus and spam protection, Blackberry access and 24x7 monitoring of all email traffic. By working with Mimecast, Cable&Wireless is now able to offer email archiving, which complies with the regulation requiring companies to archive their email for 10 years. Delivered as a service, with sub-second email retrieval and backed by industry leading SLAs this alleviates the burden that currently sits with pressured IT teams that have many business critical projects they need to address.
Lucas Searle, Product Manager at Cable&Wireless Worldwide explains, “We already offer a hosted Exchange environment for our customers and after a thorough investigation into the latest technologies available, we chose Mimecast to deliver a complementary email archiving solution. Their online email archiving is enhanced by their unified email management approach and enables us to offer customers additional functionality such as continuity, data leak prevention and eDiscovery. This is what our customers are asking for and this partnership now gives us a unique position in the marketplace.”
IDC analyst Eric Domage commented, “This is a significant announcement for both Mimecast and Cable&Wireless; it brings together the strength of Mimecast’s unified email security, continuity and archiving with the go to market capabilities and email hosting services of Cable&Wireless. This solves a significant proportion of customers email management problems and is a compelling and unique proposition.”
