    Mimecast Customer Testimonial

    Years ago when we started our SMTP servers were dealing with millions of spams. That instantly went down to thousands when Mimecast started filtering. The URL protection is a godsend and the general ability to track any mail in and out and provide proof that items were/ were not sent is invaluable.
