First Cloud Service Achieves Veracode Security Mark

Mimecast announces that Mimecast Services for Exchange v1.0 is the first cloud service to receive the VerAfied security mark. Independent and rigorous testing by Veracode demonstrates Mimecast has taken due care in developing a secure software platform and evaluates vulnerabilities against industry standards such as the OWASP Top 10 and SANS-CWE Top 25.

Mimecast's service removes the complexities and risks of business email management by providing a single cloud-based service as an alternative to on-premise archiving, continuity and security. The popular service integrates with on-premise email servers, and specifically Microsoft Exchange, to reduce server loads, automates mailbox size management and takes advantage of comprehensive Exchange-specific and user-defined information, such as folder structure and message metadata to deliver greater benefits to email users.

The VerAfied security mark is a quality indicator for the security level of applications and software components. Mimecast selected Veracode for its independent and completely transparent assessment service and due to it being based on industry-accepted standards.
