Mimecast has launched the Cyber Alliance Program, a new program designed to align security vendors into an extensive cyber resilience ecosystem.

According to Mimecast, the programme is focused on bringing complimentary cyber software vendors together for the greater good of the customer.

The cybersecurity firm highlighted that the Cyber Alliance Program is based on the premise that sharing data about threats, malicious code and attack vectors among cyber vendors helps strengthen products and creates additional protection for the customer – helping each product become more effective and allowing for customers to be more cyber resilient.

The programme is open to select technology companies offering security and cyber resilience products that meet the program criteria and that are interested in integrating their technology into Mimecast’s platform using open APIs.

“Organizations are often strapped from a resource and budget perspective, yet, IT admins are still responsible for processing and responding to alerts, all while managing a variety of disparate security solutions. Automation through interaction with Mimecast APIs helps streamline and simplify these efforts as they bolster cyber resilience,” said Christina Van Houten, chief strategy officer at Mimecast. “The goal of creating the Cyber Alliance Program is to provide an ecosystem of like-minded vendors who want to help customers efficiently and effectively protect their infrastructures, helping organizations build a more cyber resilient world.”

Customers can now benefit from the Cyber Alliance Program by maximising their current or planned investments, reducing administration time, and immediately gaining deeper insights into today’s advanced threats. Cyber Alliance Partners can now work more effectively with Mimecast on integrations by accessing APIs and conducting impactful joint go-to-market initiatives.

Mimecast Cyber Alliance Program is designed to offer customers and partners additional benefits including purpose built, ready to use integrations from some of the industry’s top vendors. It also allows them access to out-of-the-box- API’s for rapid development as well as thoroughly documented guides with sample code in five development languages. The programme will also feature simple tutorials to explain and highlight how and when to use the integrations within an organization’s environment.

The Cyber Alliance Program covers a number of cybersecurity categories including SIEM, SOAR, firewall, threat intelligence and endpoint-security vendors. For a full list of partners and more information on how to join the Cyber Alliance Program visit the Tech Connect page.
