This solution can be frustrating. It blocks many things that should be going through. I have to authorize permission, which seems to be a frequent occurrence. It may be that we have set our protection too high but we work in a regulated industry. When you click to change permissions on something, it always launches a browser instance to tell me that I have taken an action. I have to close that out and go on to the next one, and when I asign permission another item, again it opens up a browser again to notify me that I have taken action. I don't know why it does that or why it is necessary. The filtering needs more flexibility.

Its pricing can be improved. It is a bit expensive.

There is always space for them to improve. As a user, the user interface of the management console could be upgraded, for example. They can definitely improve their management console interface. The solution could always add more features and expand its offering.

Their support should be improved. They are notorious for sending you to knowledge-based articles rather than actually talking to you, but that is, unfortunately, kind of becoming a trend with everything. In terms of features, I haven't had any complaints. However, I don't like the fact they moved to a paid training subscription model. They used to have a lot of free webinars for training, but they have started to charge for them in the past year.

It was not so much about the product itself, however, their business model needs improvement. We have subscribed to an archival service, and yet, when we have to get our data out, we have to pay a fee to get our own data. They charge an extraction fee. This is something which really worries us as a company.

The detection rates are an area for improvement. The other opportunity area I see with Mimecast is that when you're searching inside of the admin console and you detect malicious emails that bypass Mimecast security: let's say you had a hundred of those messages there. Mimecast doesn't have a way to group those and submit one single report to Mimecast. You have to do one at a time which is not really very conducive — it's very time-consuming. Those are the main two points. If they work to fully resolve those two issues, that would make this an awesome tool. I mean, it's a good tool, but it would be even better. The main feature that will help everyone will be a different way to submit phishing or malicious emails that went through security. That would be a very good feature I would like to see in the next release.

Because we have not faced any challenges there is no way that we can say that there has to be some improvement. The price could be better, it should be reduced.
