Mimecast opens new London headquarters in Broadgate
Mimecast services limited, a leading email and data security company, announced the opening of its new UK head-office in 1 Finsbury Avenue at Broadgate in London. The new multi-million-pound 79,000 square foot site demonstrates the cybersecurity expert’s commitment to the UK market and continued interest in hiring top talent in the sector. The expansion will further the investment in Mimecast’s research & development teams, creating up to 100 new jobs. With a central location at the heart of London, Mimecast will be able to tap into the wide pool of talent in the capital.
Broadgate is the largest pedestrianized neighbourhood in central London, with a thriving business community across technology, finance and legal services. Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects AHMM, 1 Finsbury Avenue is a Grade II listed building that supports collaboration between large companies and young start-ups in a green, sustainable space. Moving to 1 Finsbury Avenue will enable Mimecast to attract a wider range of talent while providing its existing staff with the best amenities, including an Everyman cinema and exciting restaurants and retail outlets on-site.
This announcement coincides with new research from Mimecast and British Land, which reveals that London remains an important centre for cybersecurity to 74% of respondents, despite current economic uncertainty over Brexit. The research also found that over half (56%) of cybersecurity professionals surveyed say they expect to stay working in London over the next 5 years.
This expansion is further encouraged by the fact that 73% of cybersecurity professionals surveyed think more needs to be done to encourage women into cybersecurity roles. Additionally, 78% of respondents believe companies should do more to support office-based well-being.
David Lockyer, Head of Broadgate, British Land said: “Despite the uncertainty, we are seeing strong occupier demand for well-located, high-quality office space set in a thriving neighbourhood that helps to attract and retain talent. Our focus on transforming Broadgate into a world-class, mixed-use destination continues to resonate with businesses and we’re delighted that Mimecast is joining our diverse community of innovative and financial companies on the campus.”
Peter Bauer, CEO of Mimecast, commented: “London is a hotbed for cyber; and to help the city keep its edge, businesses, government and schools must do more to secure its future. Over the past 16 years, we have hired hundreds of talented individuals all passionate about cybersecurity.
Our commitment to this industry in the UK is two-fold: ensuring those working in the sector feel supported to continue driving its growth and inspiring more young people of all backgrounds to consider a career in cybersecurity. As well as the need to recruit, that commitment was the main reasons behind our decision to expand and create our innovative, spacious and green headquarters in the centre of the capital, providing a space for the industry to flourish, tackle new challenges and nurture the tech experts of tomorrow.”
A British success story, Mimecast has a customer base of over 35,000 organizations around the world and recently announced a 27% YoY growth to $99.2m in the first quarter. Mimecast was recently valued at $2.4billion US Dollars.
