Investing in secure remote access for all their employees, the CRYPTO-MAS authentication solution is being delivered through CRYPTOCard's partner Esseler

said James Blake, Group Chief Security Officer, Mimecast. "There were a number of factors that contributed to us choosing CRYPTOCard but fundamentally it was that CRYPTO-MAS provided the flexibility and control that our global network required."
