Australian cyber security firm, InfoTrust, has been awarded Mimecast's Australia New Zealand Growth Partner Award for FY20 at their Annual Partner Awards.
Mimecast acknowledged the efforts of its channel partners, with InfoTrust being recognised for its strategic alignment, delivery of customer outcomes, financial performance and growth.
InfoTrust chief executive officer, Dane Meah says he's "super proud of his team building a robust and trusted relationship with Mimecast over the past 18 months".
The award reflects InfoTrust's customer-centric approach with a focus on optimising ROI for customers' security investments, the company says.
“‘Set and forget' is not a strategy we use in any of our cyber risk approaches, in fact it can be incredibly damaging and dangerous,” says Meah.
“InfoTrust has always been driven by customer outcomes and it's a business imperative that we provide continued, trusted support and best-in-breed technology to our customers as new technologies evolve," he says.
“Our strong experience in email security, with the vast majority of our customers using our email security solutions and services, meant Mimecast was a great fit.
Mimecast is a market leader in the email security industry, with over 36,000 customers globally.
Mimecast's Email Security 3.0 approach furthers customer's defences beyond the traditional perimeter, enabling them to secure the full email ecosystem stack, the company explains.
“The InfoTrust team's advice and expertise across the security ecosystem has been invaluable to InfoTrust's Mimecast customers, and ensured a smooth transition from legacy solutions to Mimecast's next generation email security platform,” Mimecast channel director, Craig McGregor, said.
“Our partners are enabled to market, deploy and manage offerings that fit into a customer's cyber risk management strategy.
InfoTrust creates secure, more productive clients with more time to drive business goals.
The company provides holistic security practices, combining best-in-class technical controls with robust security policy and continually updated training for their clients' staff.
