Mimecast, an email and collaboration security company, today announced the extension of its partnership with global cybersecurity specialist distributor Exclusive Networks in the Middle East. The partnership forms a key part of Mimecast’s growth plans and will expand access to its solutions amid a complex and ever-evolving threat landscape.
To support the launch, Exclusive Network has recruited, and will continue to expand and enable a team that is dedicated to Mimecast. Once fully in place and enabled, the extended channel team across both organisations will continue to help customers throughout the Middle East manage risk and reduce complexity across their email and collaboration platforms.
The partnership is being rolled out to the UK and Ireland, the Middle East, and Israel, with further expansion plans in discussion for roll-out through to March 31 2023.
The Next Stage
Mimecast has announced a new and exciting partnership with global cyber security specialist distributor, Exclusive Networks, as the company pursues the next stage of its growth journey and to continue to provide their valued partners with a world-class experience.
In May of this year, Mimecast completed its acquisition by the global investment firm, Permira, for approximately $5.8 billion. Permira has a strong track record of working with companies in the Middle East marking Mimecast’s renewed focus in the region. The Middle East market has characteristic dynamics, notably the need to focus on strengthening channel partnerships, and the agreement with Exclusive Networks is seen as an important milestone in this regard.
Commenting on the partnership, Werno Gevers, Sales Director for Middle East at Mimecast, says: “We are excited to announce this partnership and at the opportunity to work with Exclusive Networks. Their extended partner and vendor community will support Mimecast’s growth objectives in the Middle East and continue to help customers Work Protected in an ever-changing threat landscape.”
Nathan Clements, Regional Vice President for Exclusive Networks Middle East and Africa comments: “We are very happy to have Mimecast on one of Exclusive Networks security divisions in the Middle East. There are three things we look at with every vendor we take to the market: potential for hyper-growth, great technology and amazing people who share our passion in creating value for the channel. I’m pleased to say that Mimecast checks all three boxes. I look forward to watching them grow with us in the region.”
