Mimecast plans to expand into Germany

Mimecast today announced its plans to expand into Germany.

The leading email and data security company’s new office in Munich is to serve as a regional hub for Central Europe and “strengthen ties” with existing customers and partners.

Mimecast aims to build a team that offers high-quality local German-speaking customer service, technical support and partner programme management.

Michael Heuer, country manager for Central Europe, said: “Mimecast is all-in on Germany with a long-term view on investment in technology infrastructure and jobs.

“Email is a critical service for organisations and they need help to archive their growing volumes of data in a highly secure repository while providing powerful search tools that allow employees to easily access this information quickly for productivity and GDPR compliance.

“Our research shows that advanced email attacks in Germany are growing and many firms have not yet embraced a cyber resilience strategy. It’s vital that organisations not only invest in preventing attacks but also prepare how to keep their business working during an incident.”

The firm is also planning to open two fully replicated data centres in Germany in 2018, in a bid to support the growing appetite for local data residency.
