What we bring

We're fast thinking. We go big to reach our cyberattack-disrupting goals. And we do what we need to protect the world of business from getting important (and potentially compromising) data stolen. We never leave anyone behind. We deliver quickly - and outstandingly. We're big on honesty because it makes us better. We're empowered by our mission. And if cybercriminals have a good day, we work twice as hard to make the rest of their days a nightmare. That's The Mimecast Way.

And the Mimecast way is also a hybrid-working way. We empower our people to balance their time between home and the office in a way that works best for them, their team and our stakeholders.

Become a Mimecaster and put corporate data under your protection. Fill our teams with respect. And bring cybercrime-obstructing energy to your work. Be passionate. Be powerful. Be alive with purpose.
