3 August 2010 – London: Mimecast®, a unified email management company offering cloud-based email security, continuity, policy control and archiving, today announced that it has been selected by Morgan Cole, a full-service, regional UK law firm, to provide cloud-based email security, continuity, policy control and archiving to all six of its offices.
Just before a merger, Morgan Cole engaged Mimecast to help scale its central email system, serving 558 employees across offices in Cardiff, Swansea, Bristol, Reading and Oxford. Mimecast’s cloud service will help the law firm to manage the growing volume of email stored on its mail server, addressing problems of slow mailbox searching and increasing storage costs. Integrating with the company’s existing Microsoft Exchange and Outlook environments, Morgan Cole is using Mimecast for remote access, business continuity, security and improved archive management.
Mimecast provides email security, continuity and archiving with no hardware, software or capital expense. The typical stack of email technologies; gateways, anti-spam systems, email archives, continuity facilities, email marketing, policy control and virus protection, are all replaced by the Mimecast service, hosted in the cloud.
Jeff Wright, IT Director and partner at Morgan Cole commented; “I can’t speak highly enough about the service. It’s pretty uncommon in the legal profession for people to be vocal about their appreciation of IT, but praise of the new email system is widespread at Morgan Cole. From an IT management perspective, Mimecast’s UEM approach reduces complexity by providing all the facilities we need, through a single interface, from a single vendor. Furthermore, the costs are predictable, so if the firm suddenly needs increased storage, I can simply phone Mimecast and increase our capacity, without the need for hefty capital investment.”
Peter Bauer, co- founder and CEO of Mimecast added; “All businesses rely heavily on their email and with 85% of confidential information and intellectual property stored in email facilities, the need for secure storage and management has never been greater. Email volume in organisations is growing by more than 30% per year and the average user receives 7MB of data per day via email. Unifying email services and managing them within the cloud provides considerable cost savings, and as Morgan Cole found out the benefits of speed and accessibility are quickly appreciated by users too.”
