Help AG partners with email security vendor Mimecast
Help AG will use the Mimecast’s solutions in its own Cyber Security Operations Centre
Help AG, an information security services, consultancy, and solutions provider in the Middle East, has signed a reseller agreement with Mimecast.
The channel partnership enables Help AG to offer Mimecast’s email risk management and data security solutions to businesses via a single, integrated subscription service.
In the 2018 edition of its annual ‘The State of Email Security’ report, Mimecast highlighted that 59% of organisations will suffer a negative business impact from an email-borne attack this year. “Adding Mimecast’s powerful solutions to our portfolio, enables us to comprehensively strengthen the email protection we deliver to our customers,” said Stephan Berner, chief executive officer at Help AG. “It also enables us to help customers achieve availability and reliability of email as they migrate critical data and applications to the cloud.”
Mimecast’s solutions are designed to enable seamless availability of cloud email services such as Office 365. “In April this year, Office 365 experienced six hours of downtime but businesses activating Mimecast continuity were able to retain essential email functionality, thereby shielding them from the potential loss of productivity. As organisations in the region increasingly shed their concerns and embrace cloud services, having a reliable continuity service will be fundamental to the smooth operation of any business,” explained Berner.
“In the age of cloud, Mimecast needed a trusted channel partner to design, deploy and integrate our solutions into the environments of different organisations,” said Jeff Ogden, general manager Mimecast Middle East. “From the onset, Help AG has shown a deep understanding of Mimecast and the value it can bring to customers.”
In addition to offering consultancy, implementation and support services for all solutions within Mimecast’s portfolio, the reseller will use the vendor’s solutions in its own Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC) to enhance the threat detection and remediation capabilities of its Managed Security Services (MSS) offering.
