Mimecast opens German data centers to help European firms address Cyber Resilience for Email

Munich, June 13, 2018 — Mimecast Limited (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, today announced that its German data centers are open for business.

Mimecast confirmed that the services are live and the first customers had begun their onboarding. Two new replicated data centers are in separate co-located facilities in Frankfurt am Main and operate on Mimecast’s own proprietary cloud infrastructure and MimeOS software architecture. Mimecast’s advanced security, business continuity and archiving services are designed to operate in accordance with GDPR (DSGVO) and German data protection laws.

“Germany’s cautious yet pragmatic approach to cloud is exactly why Mimecast is planning for rapid growth in the region,” said Mimecast CEO Peter Bauer. “Concerns remain over where data is stored and what happens when critical services like email fail, creating security risks and disrupting workplace productivity. Our new German data centers will allow us to help organizations adopt a cyber resilience strategy to secure, preserve and continue the flow of information via email.”

Mimecast services are engineered to support Microsoft® Exchange, Office 365®, Google and on-premise email environments.

International audit, tax and advisory firm Mazars is migrating services to the German data center. Group CISO Jayson Dudley commented: “Protecting client confidentiality and data security is paramount to our business and guaranteed data sovereignty in Germany helps us meet our European compliance objectives. Mimecast is our first line of defense against growing volumes of ransomware and phishing attacks by email.”

New Mimecast research* highlights only 13% of surveyed German organizations had so far adopted a complete cyber resilience strategy, while 88% felt this was ‘crucial’ or ‘very important.’

Most German organizations had also seen more email attacks over the last 12 months. The research revealed 48% had seen a rise in malware and ransomware through email attachments, while 35% had seen more impersonation fraud asking employees to make financial transactions. Moreover, 59% of German organizations were ‘concerned’ about the implications of not being GDPR-compliant.

“We’ve invested heavily in Munich to setup our regional hub for Central Europe expansion. This includes German-speaking customer service, technical support and reseller program management,” said Michael Heuer, Country Manager - Central Europe. “Our German research shows disruptive email attacks are on the rise, yet most enterprises are yet to respond with an appropriate cyber resilience posture,” he added.

Mimecast has more than 30,400 customers worldwide, with 31% using Mimecast services as a supplement to Microsoft Office 365. The new data centers help form a global network of 12 data centers around the world across the UK, US, South Africa, Australia, offshore in the Channel Islands and now Germany.
