Mimecast Brings Secure Enterprise Cloud Services to Mac Users

Mimecast the leading cloud email security, archiving and continuity 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 popular Large 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 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 Send.

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 cloud services.”

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.”

Mimecast Large File Send is available now and more information can be found here and a video showing how it works can be viewed here.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

The material was delivered interac...
