Brown Rudnick achieves 60% cost reduction
International law firm Brown Rudnick has replaced its existing email management system with Mimecast, to unify the hitherto distributed system that had separate applications for email security, data leak protection, spam filtering and virus protection.
Mimecast has implemented SaaS-based Unified Email Management service across six offices of Brown. Mimecast says that its online archive stores up to 10 years of email. It protects users and network from spam, and email viruses, as well as ensures continuous access to new and archived email in case of an outage.
Mary Kay Roberto, senior vice president and general manager of Mimecast North America, said: “Mimecast’s SaaS approach to email management makes email more useful and productive as a business tool while consolidating the current email infrastructure. IT departments are being asked to manage multi-year email archiving for eDiscovery needs. The growth of SaaS-based services for email archiving, continuity and security should reduce the number of companies who are at risk of costly litigation losses and business downtime.”
Brown was able to reduce its IT costs by 60% with Mimecast’s email management system that prevents data leak, archives emails and provides security for legal compliance and eDiscovery.
Jim Darsigny, IT director for Boston-based Brown Rudnick, said: “Mimecast provides increased functionality and lower overhead. Even if we had only eliminated just one of our four in-house email programmes, Mimecast has already paid for itself. Add to that a 40% improvement in infrastructure efficiency since Mimecast’s SaaS solution requires zero hardware investment.”
In December last, Mimecast announced that law firm Miles & Stockbridge could achieve 50% cost savings by switching over to Mimecast’s cloud-based email management. Miles & Stockbridge employed Mimecast’s service throughout its eight offices.
