Nuvias to distribute Mimecast email security solution in Middle East
Nuvias Middle East and Africa, part of the pan-EMEA high value distribution business Nuvias Group, will distribute solutions from Mimecast, an email and data security company, in the Middle East to support its growth plans across the region.
This partnership is in response to the growing business, customer base and demand for its cloud security solutions in the region. Nuvias Middle East and Africa will drive business in the area through its channel network and channel programmes. Channel partners will benefit from enablement programmes, technical support and consulting services, backed by qualified experts from both Mimecast and Nuvias.
Having been recognised by Gartner, Forrester and Radicati for its industry-leading email security and archiving services, Mimecast solutions will enable Nuvias Middle East and Africa to strengthen its established cyber security practice and provide the IT channel and end users with proactive integrated security solutions, allowing them to be ahead of cyber threats.
Alasdair Kilgour, Vice President Middle East and Africa at Nuvias, commented: “Mimecast is a very significant addition to the Nuvias Middle East and Africa Cybersecurity Practice solution stack, because of its ability to protect the enterprise from email-based attacks including impersonation attacks, social engineering and ransomware. We are delighted to be working closely with the local Mimecast team to bring their cloud email continuity services to our reseller partners and their end-users across the region.”
“Mimecast has already experienced incredible growth in the Middle East and with Nuvias’ network of resellers, we expect to see a boost in brand awareness as we further our reach into the region,” says Brandon Bekker, Managing Director, Africa and Middle East at Mimecast. “As committed partners, we anticipate a long and successful journey together.”
Mimecast has been making email safer for businesses across the Middle East since 2008. Through its security, archiving and continuity cloud services, the company delivers comprehensive email risk management in one fully-integrated service. Mimecast reduces the risk, complexity and cost traditionally associated with protecting email.
