Mimecast Case Study

H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute


This case study of H Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute is based on a December 2018 survey of Mimecast customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

In some cases, we were able to provide reports with actionable data to co-counsel the next business day.”
