Mimecast Brings Secure Enterprise Cloud Services to Mac Users
WATERTOWN, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
the leading cloud email security,
service, has brought its suite of products to enterprise Mac users via a
new native app, Mimecast
for Mac. The firm also has announced major improvements to its
File Send product. Both are available now.
New - Mimecast for Mac
Mimecast for Mac enables enterprise users to benefit from the ease of
use and range of cloud services previously limited to Microsoft (News - Alert) Outlook
for Windows or web portal users. This native app gives Mac users full
access to their email when their primary service goes down, fast search
of everything in their personal email archive, and spam management. It
also enables them to send securely large files with Mimecast Large File
IT administrators also get the ease and cost benefit of managing their
Mac users alongside their Windows infrastructure from within the same
central Mimecast Administration Console.
Orlando Scott-Cowley, Director of Technology Marketing, Mimecast
commented: "IT teams manage complex environments that mix PCs and Macs
with multiple mobile devices. Securing data across these heterogeneous
environments can be a real headache. Our new Mimecast for Mac app gives
end users easy access to email continuity services as well as
self-service email archive search and security services. With Large File
Send also available via the Mac app, IT administrators now know that
some of their most storage-hungry users can exchange big files within a
safe corporate IT framework, and with no need to resort to consumer

Upgrade - Mimecast Large File Send
IT administrators are increasingly concerned
that the use of third-party cloud services puts their organization at
higher risk of breaching confidentiality, data security, regulatory or
compliance rules. They also recognize that users need to send
increasingly large files. Mimecast Large
File Send keeps this data under IT control in support of
organizational security and data leakage policies. This is achieved
without the need for more investment in on-premise infrastructure,
unsustainable increases in network traffic or acceptance of the risk
from uncontrollable cloud services.
With the new version of Large
File Send users can send and receive large files securely whether or
not the recipient is a Mimecast customer. The file remains protected and
archived on Mimecast's cloud service throughout the exchange.
Files sent and received over Mimecast Large File Send are virus-scanned
and checked against enterprise-defined rules for data leak prevention
before being stored securely in the corporate email archive within
Mimecast's cloud platform. This allows for more rapid and uncompromised
e-discovery and supports compliance as all enterprise data resides in a
single archive. It also reduces the traffic over the corporate network
caused by the sending and receiving of these large files - the file is
saved once to the Mimecast cloud and shared from there, never hitting
the corporate infrastructure.
Orlando Scott-Cowley commented: "Organizations are battling with a
significant security and corporate governance threat from users turning
to external cloud file sharing and storage services. Mimecast Large File
Send eliminates this problem. Once installed, users have no need, desire
or excuse to circumvent corporate rules and put their corporate data or
organization at risk. IT administrators can relax knowing they have
regained control of the data and that their users have the functionality
they want integrated into one, easy-to-use app."
