Email filtering and Security

Mimecast helps us manage emails effectively blocking spam and other unwanted emails. It also provides as a DR solution for sending and receiving mail. As well as retrieving wrongfully deleted mail.

PROS

MimeCast is an excellent all in one email filter and management tool. MimeCast offers great functionality to block spam and filter any unwanted emails. We use block and allow lists to our benefit for email domains. Mimecast also offers a large range of other features including large file send which is excellent for securely sending large files which may be blocked by normal email due to the size.

CONS

Mimecast is a great tool, One issue I face with Mimecast is the size of the portal and amount of features that are similar. It can be tricky to find what you need at times.

Mimecast has really improved our spam situation and reduced the amount of time we need to deal with

We have had great success with Mimecast. Our user base has really taken to the product, so much so that a few wondered what had happened to all of their spam!

PROS

Mimecast is very good at catching spam before it hits a user's inbox. It also has great features like attachment sandboxing which are eye opening.

CONS

Mimecast can be daunting to get set up initially; there are many different configuration screens which all work together. Configuring policies can be confusing, but support is quite capable and you should make use of that resource as you get things up and running.

Reason for choosing MimeCast Email Security

We felt that the features were better, as well as the online reviews.

Reasons for switching to MimeCast Email Security

CanIt was really falling behind on features and functionality. We only truly realized just how far it had dropped after we switched to Mimecast and saw what good spam scanning was like.

Mimecast is an additional security layer that I haven't felt much benefit from at all.

I haven't found any benefits from the software as yet. Maybe the benefits are the fact that my mailbox isn't crowded with SPAM, but, then again, it wasn't before MimeCast. I may be looking at this entirely wrong and not seeing the benefits that have been introduced, but I haven't felt them at all.

PROS

Mimecast runs on the e-mail server side, so there was no change to the way I way or handle e-mails every day. The software guided me through device registration when opening links, and explained what was happening at each step and why.

CONS

Lots of e-mails that come from trusted sources have been marked as SPAM. This occurs on a regular basis. The fact that device registrations, to ensure links can be opened in e-mails, are based on a stored cookie is really inconvenient. This means that if I choose not to allow cookies, I need to register the device I am using (via a 2 factor emailed code) every time I click on a link in e-mail.
