On-demand win for Microsoft partners  

    Mimecast, the number one Software-Plus-Services Partner for Microsoft Exchange and Outlook, has announced today the newly achieved accreditation of Microsoft Gold - the highest level of accreditation for an Independent Software Vendor - for Advanced Infrastructure and Security Solutions.  

    Mimecast Services for Microsoft Exchange, Outlook and Windows Mobile provide unified email management encompassing email security, continuity and archiving services for Microsoft customers and partners. The Software-as-a-Service platform was designed by Mimecast from the ground up to offer an integrated and cohesive solution to help stop all email disruptions. As there is no need for additional hardware or software Mimecast also removes the complexity, cost and overhead associated with alternative on-premise solutions.

    Peter Bauer, Mimecast CEO, comments; “Achieving Microsoft gold accreditation in six weeks reflects our commitment to the Microsoft email platform and supports our channel partners who constantly look to find efficiencies and new best practice methods to better support their customers. We have a relentless dedication to providing a services infrastructure that integrates with Microsoft email technologies and in doing so we help organisations of all sizes to protect their existing investment in Microsoft software.”  

    Bauer continues; “We strongly believe that Mimecast plays an important part in the Microsoft software-plus-services strategy by delivering systems that integrate with Microsoft Exchange, Outlook and Windows Mobile. What this means to the customer is that any organization can now afford to access an enterprise level email architecture without the cost and complexity of deploying in-house solutions.”  

    Peter Alexander, Managing Director at Montal, a Mimecast accredited reseller partner, also believes his customers benefit greatly due to the close technology integration between Mimecast and Microsoft; “We have many customers across all industries and of all sizes. The one thing that they all have in common is their increasing reliance on email as a business enabler but with that comes all the inherent issues associated with email management. We work with our customers by helping them to find better and more cost effective ways of applying technology while improving the service that they deliver to their staff. Working with Mimecast we have been able to provide customers of all sizes with an affordable solution that gives them access to enterprise level email infrastructure for a pay-as-you-go price.”

    One of Montal’s customers, Jacinta Ramkissoon, finance director of Pierhead Housing and Mimecast user says; “Prior to Mimecast, we used a different product but found that the daily fight against junk and false positive emails was ever increasing. Since Mimecast went live, our IT team has received little or no complaints about spam emails. Furthermore, the administration time has been near zero and once the initial setup was completed, very little further configuration was needed. We have used the Mimecast system to recover emails that we deleted in error, or to provide proof that a particular email was sent externally or received internally. The time taken to do this has been minimal due to the simplicity of the interface.”

    Mimecast will be exhibiting the latest in their range of Microsoft software-plus-services solutions at both the Business Continuity and InfoSecurity Expos in London, during the month of April.
