Somerville Partners with Mimecast to Accelerate Delivery of Best-in-Class Cybersecurity Solutions

Craig Somerville, CEO, Somerville

Somerville, one of the most experienced end-to-end technology service providers in Australia, today announced that it has been appointed as a partner by Mimecast, an email and collaboration security company.

As a Mimecast Partner, Somerville will now have access to the entire range of Mimecast cybersecurity services for email, web and data and will work closely with the vendor to help organisations be work protected by protecting their people, data, and communications.

In addition, with Mimecast being a leading provider of cybersecurity to organisations using Microsoft 365, Somerville also now has a market opportunity to further grow in the enterprise market with services designed to complement and extend the core capabilities of Microsoft Exchange and Office 365.

As Craig Somerville, CEO, Somerville, explains, “The threat landscape continues to evolve, and organisations are looking to their IT partner for support in a world where the vast majority of attacks are mounted via email and businesses are relying on individuals opening and dealing with rogue messages. Just a single click can result in a widespread infection that causes problems for hundreds or even thousands of users.  As a result, we’re excited that Somerville’s customers will now be able to access Mimecast’s suite of advanced security solutions.”

Mimecast’s security solutions are a perfect complement to Somerville’s capacity to deliver the security, scale, availability, resilience, and efficiency that organisations require to protect them from malicious activity, human error and potential technology failure.  Somerville’s portfolio of cybersecurity vendors include Check Point Software Technologies, Sophos, Microsoft, CrowdStrike and Devicie among others, some of which integrate with Mimecast.

“Somerville is serious about providing resilient security services so we take a multilayered, integrated approach that encompasses all the potential threats to client networks,” says Craig Somerville.”  With Mimecast, we’ll now be working with a channel-first company and deploying its forward-thinking solutions which are able to provide solid protection and effective security services.”

Mimecast’s annual survey of global IT and cybersecurity professionals for ‘The State of Email Security Report 2023’, revealed that email usage continues to rise at 85% of Australian companies with 70% have experienced an increase in email-based threats and 96% having been targeted by email-based phishing attacks.

“The Mimecast channel program is set up to provide profitable outcomes for partners who provide end to end security solutions to their customers and include Mimecast’s leading technologies in their offerings. We are thrilled that Somerville is expanding its commitment to offer best-of-breed security solutions to their customers, by partnering with Mimecast. We look forward to driving our joint value proposition to customers in the market and empowering organisations to secure their workplace environment wherever work happens,” says Craig McGregor, senior channel director, Mimecast APAC.
