Partnerships & certifications
At Mimecast we are proud to work with the best of breed technology, vendors, and service companies. Some of these may be in the form of an alliance, a complementary solution or an integral part of the core delivery platform that our customers rely on.
While we’re interoperable with many messaging systems, we are best and deepest integrated with Microsoft Exchange. Providing Essential Cloud Services for Exchange to our global customer base makes Microsoft our number one alliance partner.
HP is the backbone behind our service and provides the high performance, industry standard-based server infrastructure for Mimecast’s email processing and storage service grids worldwide.
Research In Motion (RIM), is the designer and manufacturer of the BlackBerry® smartphone, used by millions of professionals across the globe. Mimecast BlackBerry Continuity extends the Mimecast service further to deliver email continuity to the mobile workforce.
This is a rigorous international standard that sets out detailed requirements for an Information Security Management System. At Mimecast we have elected to adopt ISO 27001 as the corner stone for our Information Security Management System as it is globally recognised as the best framework to demonstrate audited and continual improvement and on-going security management. We have embraced the ISO 27001 controls to their fullest possible extent at Mimecast. You can view the certificate here.
Mimecast has been proactive in engaging with The Cloud Security Alliance whose mission is to promote best practice in the provision of security assurance within Cloud Computing. The CSA Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (CSA STAR) is a free, publicly accessible registry documenting security controls published by various Cloud Computing providers, thereby helping users assess the security of Cloud services they currently use or are considering contracting with.

The Safe Harbor certification indicates that Mimecast’s Unified Email Management (UEM) solution meets the privacy protection mandates defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s directive. Mimecast’s certification provides added support for the company’s international business through the complex ecosystem between the U.S.’s permissive discovery regime and the E.U.’s comprehensive privacy laws. International regulations of all sorts threaten to negatively impact organizations by applying another layer of complexity onto already overburdened IT systems. The certification of Mimecast’s cloud-based UEM solution removes this particular hurdle from organizations’ paths.
The Safe Harbor framework ensures compliant messaging to all 27 members of the E.U. for Mimecast customers and offers a simple, cost-effective means of complying with the adequacy requirements of the Directive, which benefit enterprises of all sizes as they expand and operate internationally.
