Overall Satisfaction with Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

Our entire organization uses Mimecast Secure Email Gateway; it handles all of our spam/junk email bounce/blocks as well as offers other features such as attachment threat scanning/blocking, anti-phishing measure (replaces URLs with a Mimecast URL), and DR continuity. Mimecast offers even more products and services at the perimeter but we do not use all of their features.
  • Spam/malware blocking
  • Allows you to customize rule sets for specific individuals, groups, or all staff
  • Good support and an engaging user base that offers questions and solutions to issues
  • The web portal for end users could be a bit more UI friendly
  • Getting a message to pass through the Mimecast policies can be a bit long sometimes depending on how many policies are applied
  • Definitely positive as it will get at least 80-85% of the crap that doesn't even need to make it to your on-premise (or hosted) email server. That's a lot of storage that you don't have to allocate or pay for.
I really love the cloud-based solution of Mimecast versus an on-premise add-on for the email server. It gives us more flexibility to make changes internally as well as offering a more robust line of services by leveraging the cloud infrastructure and allows us to move from on-premise to the cloud for our email in the future.
Very good for SMBs and large organizations to have an email security solution at the perimeter and also if you need a solution that can do things like archiving, legal holds and disaster recovery. These would be very useful in not just day to day operations but also in the event of a major disaster declaration.
