Cloud-based email management provider retains prestigious UK channel security award

London, UK: Mimecast, the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and securityfor Microsoft Exchange, Hosted Exchange and Office 365, has been named Security Vendor of the Year for a second successive year at the industry-leading 2012 CRN Channel Awards.

 

After winning the award for the first time last year, Mimecast continued to develop and improve its channel security offering to stay ahead of the competition. The CRN Security Vendor of the Year award recognises not just Mimecast’s product range and technological innovation, but its overall contribution to the channel, its service and support, and its extensive channel and marketing programmes.

Nessa Lynchehaun, UK Channel Director at Mimecast, commented: “To win CRN Security Vendor of the Year last year was a fantastic achievement for Mimecast, but to win for a second year running and retain our crown, which is always harder to do, is an even bigger achievement. It is well deserved recognition for the emphasis we have placed on continuing to develop our channel programme, and strengthen our partner community, our technology and our ability to add value for all our partners.

“At Mimecast, we’ve set the bar high and we are now looking forward to an exciting 2013, continuing to innovate to improve our channel programme and investing in our team, our products and our partners to help take the business on to the next level in the UK and across Europe.”

A number of Mimecast partners were also honoured on the night. Microsoft was named Software Vendor of the Year, Trustmarque picked up Services Provider of the Year, Bytes Software Services scooped Enterprise Reseller of the Year, and Softcat collected Reseller of the Year.

2012 has been a great year for awards for Mimecast. The CRN Security Vendor of the Year gong follows a 20th place ranking in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50, winning Computing Security’s Messaging Security Solution of the Year, being named Microsoft Innovative Customer Advocacy Partner of the Year, and picking up Messaging Product of the Year at the Network Computing awards. Mimecast’s Unified Email Management solution also won an MSExchange Gold award, Eliza Hedegaard was named Account Manager of the Year at the Knowlist Legal IT Awards, Gillian Crewdson received Best Vendor Marketing Manager at the CRN Sales & Marketing Awards, and Trevor Highley was honoured with Best Vendor Account Manager at the same event.
