Mimecast launches new Cyber Alliance Programme
The programme will bring complementary cyber software vendors together for the greater good of the customer
Mimecast has announced the launch of the Cyber Alliance Program, a new programme designed to align security vendors into an extensive cyber resilience ecosystem. According to the email and data security firm, this programme is focused on bringing complementary cyber software vendors together for the greater good of the customer.
Driven by customer demand, the Cyber Alliance Programme is based on the premise that sharing data about threats, malicious code and attack vectors among cyber vendors helps strengthen products and creates additional protection for the customer – helping each product become more effective and allowing for customers to be more cyber resilient.
The programme is open to select technology companies offering security and cyber resilience products that meet the programme criteria and that are interested in integrating their technology into Mimecast’s platform using open APIs.
“Organisations are often strapped from a resource and budget perspective, yet, IT admins are still responsible for processing and responding to alerts, all while managing a variety of disparate security solutions. Automation through interaction with Mimecast APIs helps streamline and simplify these efforts as they bolster cyber resilience,” said Christina Van Houten, chief strategy officer at Mimecast. “The goal of creating the Cyber Alliance Programme is to provide an ecosystem of like-minded vendors who want to help customers efficiently and effectively protect their infrastructures, helping organisations build a more cyber resilient world.”
Customers can now benefit from the Cyber Alliance Programme by maximizing their current or planned investments, reducing administration time, and immediately gaining deeper insights into today’s advanced threats. Cyber Alliance Partners can now work more effectively with Mimecast on integrations by accessing APIs and conducting impactful joint go-to-market initiatives.
