Introduction

Creating a unique story to align with opportunity

Mimecast published its third annual “State of Email Security” report to provide insights from over 1,000 IT professionals on email security challenges. The report identifies the latest email-borne threats facing enterprises of all sizes, industries and locations globally.

PAN and Mimecast launched this year’s report with one goal in mind: to frame the data and insights alongside current IT trends and breaking news.

We are constantly looking at the media and seeing where we can insert data. We use the raw data to create a unique story that speaks to the client’s mission while also addressing reporters’ needs based on what’s happening in the world. Identifying these opportunities and securing hit coverage solidifies Mimecast’s position as the leading email and data security company with the business and trade publications that are so important to helping gain greater visibility within their key audiences.
