Mimecast opens APIs to developers, partners
Dedicated portal allows developers apps and integrations around email security, archived data, configurations and provisioning
Mimecast has launched a dedicated API portal for developers to easily access its sample code, documentation and pre-built integration packs.
By opening its APIs to developers, Mimecast, the email security specialists, wants to give organisations flexibility in using its services. The Mimecast API already processes millions of requests per day and is a key enabler for many Mimecast services and applications. Now customers and partners can visit the portal to use the same API to take advantage of Mimecast security and archive data, integrate to existing applications and harness email risk management services.
“We’re excited to unveil the API developer portal leveraging the power and extensibility of the Mime│OS platform” said Mark Basler, senior vice president of product management, Mimecast. “The API enables Mimecast to extend our core cyber resilience functionality to customers and partners, enabling them to integrate Mimecast services into existing and new applications.”
The API developer portal makes it possible to integrate any complementary solution and expose a range of integration options across multiple use cases, including:
- Access enhanced logging to programmatically download gateway and security log file data, track email messages, and interact with security policies.
- Rapidly search the Mimecast archive and access content. Query individual mailboxes or all mailboxes in the organisation using role-based administrator permissions.
- Automate common configuration tasks such as user and group management, adding new internal email domains, updating block lists and more.
- As a Mimecast registered Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Partner, automate customer account provisioning and streamline ongoing customer account management.
Mimecast customers and partners have built over 50 integrations into a variety of solutions across security including information event management (SIEM) and security orchestration and automation; Archive, advanced eDiscovery and visualization; SaaS applications like Salesforce.com and provisioning applications. Pre-built integrations already available include Demisto and LogRhythm for streamlining security processes; and ConnectWise for MSP enablement.
