Mimecast announces new cyber alliance programme

Christina Van Houten Chief Strategy Officer MimecastMimecast Limited, an email and data security company, has launched the cyber alliance programme, a new programme designed to align security vendors with an extensive cyber resilience ecosystem

Interoperability and data sharing are vital to any advanced security plan while building a more cyber resilient organisation. Mimecast’s cyber alliance programme is focused on bringing together complementary cyber software vendors for the customer’s greater good.

The alliance programme is based on the premise that sharing data between cyber vendors on threats, malicious code and attack vectors can help strengthen products. It can further create additional protection for the customer, helping each product to become more effective and enabling 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 are interested in integrating their technology into Mimecast’s platform using open APIs.

Christina Van Houten, chief strategy officer at Mimecast, said, “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.”

“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,” she added.

Mimecast claims that customers can now benefit from the programme by maximising their current or planned investments, reducing administration time, and gaining immediate insights into the advanced threats. Cyber alliance partners can now work more effectively with Mimecast on integration by accessing APIs and conducting impactful joint go-to-market initiatives.

Mimecast cyber alliance programme is designed to offer customers and partners additional benefits, including:

-Purpose-built, ready to use integrations from some of the market-leading vendors.

-Out of the box API’s for rapid development.

-Thoroughly documented guides with sample code in five development languages.

-Simple tutorials to explain and highlight how and when to use the integrations within an organisation’s environment.

The cyber alliance programme covers many cybersecurity categories including SIEM, SOAR, firewall, threat intelligence and endpoint-security vendors.
