LEXINGTON, Mass., November 1, 2022 — Mimecast Limited (Mimecast), an advanced email and collaboration security company, today announced the launch and general availability of its Email Security, Cloud Integrated solution that will help enable organizations to Work Protected™. This gateway-less solution is designed to optimize protection for Microsoft 365 environments with scalable, best-in-class email and collaboration security.

Mimecast’s Email Security, Cloud Integrated solution is designed to empower organizations of all sizes to address critical security challenges such as increasingly sophisticated attacks, an expanded hybrid attack surface, a growing skills gap and more. This new gateway-less deployment solution is engineered for organizations that want to secure their M365 environment without adding complexity or burdening overstretched teams.

“Backed by nearly two decades of email security expertise and a rich history of innovation, Mimecast is uniquely positioned to offer a flexible, gateway-less solution that helps organizations proactively enhance their security posture,” said David Raissipour, Mimecast Chief Technology & Product Officer. “With the evolving nature of today’s threat landscape, there isn’t a ‘one-size-fits-all’ email security solution designed to address the unique needs of every enterprise. Scalability is key. Mimecast’s Email Security, Cloud Integrated deployment solution enables us to scale our services so more organizations can Work Protected by securing their business communications, people, and data.”
