Mimecast, a supplier of cloud-based e-mail archiving, security and continuity for email hosting solution Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange, has been placed on the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 for the third consecutive year.
This prestigious list, now in its 12th year, ranks best-of-breed and privately-owned technology, media and telecoms (TMT) companies within the U.K. in a league table. It also racks the fastest growing companies in this country based on the past three years of available accounts.
Mimecast grew at an average of 65.76 percent over the last three years, placing 45th. The email hosting provider was identified as one of the UK's 50 fastest growing technology companies, having won over 5,500 customers - including 70 percent of the UK's top 100 law firms and over 1.5 million users worldwide since the business was founded in 2003.
"As a business we have always grown very rapidly and, having been included in the Tech Track 100 since 2010, it is great to have completed the hat-trick with our third consecutive appearance," said Peter Bauer, CEO and co-founder of Mimecast, in a statement.
Bauer said that this is a testament to the hard work and expertise of the whole Mimecast team and the company’s fast growing community of partners. Looking back at the last 18 months alone, Mimecast's user base has almost doubled through continuing engagement with partners.
“In a rapidly consolidating market, we have kept our focus on delivering excellent customer service and this has been crucial to our success. Of course, we remain ambitious and, with businesses' need for innovative email services greater than ever, this promises to be a very exciting year for the business,” he added.
Additionally this year, the company won the Microsoft Innovative Customer Advocacy Partner of the Year Award.
