New hire to manage rapid business growth of second generation email SaaS provider

London - February 25th , 2010 - Mimecast®, a unified email management company offering SaaS-based email security continuity, archiving, and policy control, today announced the appointment of Jonathan Gale as Senior Vice President of Product Management. At Mimecast Gale will oversee the global product roadmap and will be integral in building Mimecast's position as a leading unified email management provider and driving rapid business growth.

Gale joins Mimecast from MessageLabs where he spent eight years working in senior management positions. Gale was pivotal in establishing MessageLabs sales success first in EMEA and then globally. He was intimately involved in signing the biggest MessageLabs customers and then transformed and expanded their product offering in the years immediately before the Symantec acquisition.

"Now is the right time to be joining a company like Mimecast. In this difficult economic climate it has achieved significant year-on-year revenue growth, which graphically demonstrates the company has a product technology platform that addresses real customer needs with a solid business model that is well positioned for expansion," said Gale. "Positive analyst endorsements from Gartner and Forrester Consulting demonstrate that Mimecast has become the defacto standard in SaaS email management and that it's leading the way in helping companies gain long-term benefits and cost savings from cloud computing."

Gale brings a wealth of experience to Mimecast with over 15 years in the industry. Prior to his time at MessageLabs, Gale led business development for BT Consulting, and also worked for Touchbase Communications, a highly successful globally distributed technology VAR.

Peter Bauer, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Mimecast said, "Jonathan's appointment is yet another example of our continued commitment to attracting the best talent in order to propel business growth. Over the last two years we have significantly expanded worldwide operations and in the last year alone we have doubled the size of our R&D team." Bauer continued, "Jonathan will play a key role in managing our continuous innovations and growth of the business. His role will be to assist us in executing the Mimecast product opportunities of our second generation SaaS platform."
