MJ Flood Technology, a leading provider of communications solutions today announced that it has signed an exclusive partnership deal with Mimecast, the number one Software-plus-Services partner for Microsoft Exchange and Outlook. The deal will see MJ Flood Technology deliver a Unified Email Security, Archiving and Continuity service to enterprises of all sizes, with projected revenues of € 1M over the next fiscal year.
Mimecast is an online technology platform that can cut email management costs by up to 75 percent and radically improve the way companies manage their most important business communications and data.
Commenting on the partnership, James Finglas, managing director, MJ Flood Technology said: “The addition of Mimecast to our service portfolio effectively addresses the security, cost, risk and complexity challenges in managing growing email infrastructure. Mimecast offers a secure, holistic approach to email management and replaces separate and fragmented solutions to manage security, archiving and continuity with a single service. It fundamentally changes the way in which companies traditionally manage email communications at a very attractive price point.”
Mimecast is based on Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture. With no hardware, software or capital outlay required, companies simply pay an annual fee per user which allows them to securely filter, store, archive and retrieve email on demand. It addresses all the key challenges around security and compliance, protecting users from evolving Internet-borne threats and storing up to ten years of email securely. Mimecast guarantees information integrity with true end-to-end email management and transparent Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
MJ Flood Technology has already brought the benefits of Mimecast to the OHM Group, one of the country’s leading importers, distributors and retailers of motor cars, commercial vehicles and buses. With sales of €280M across marques such as Jaguar, Seat, Saab and Chrysler, the company evaluated several email security solutions and ultimately chose Mimecast as Emmet Holland, central services manager of the OHM Group explains. “Mimecast delivers unprecedented control over our email communications. Besides giving us peace of mind around security and easy access to our archive, it also delivers sophisticated email marketing, allowing us to brand each outgoing email with a standard corporate message and discreetly embed targeted information for our customers. Mimecast is a very powerful solution which offers a rounded approach to managing our email infrastructure.”
“In launching Mimecast onto the Irish market, we were keen to partner with an organisation which could offer us a strong track record in IT service delivery as well as geographic reach,” said Alan Kenny, sales director, Mimecast. “MJ Flood Technology ticks all the boxes and we are confident that together we can help companies to cut up to 75 percent of their email management costs and dramatically reduce the resource burden associated with traditional email point product solutions.”
