The Mimecast Security Agent is an endpoint application for Windows and MacOS. It:

  • Works in conjunction with Mimecast Web Security to offer protection on user's devices, while they are on or off the corporate network (e.g. roaming or using public Wi-Fi).
  • Removes the need to deploy a Mimecast certificate to view our block and warning pages for sites using SSL certificate (https://). This is because it automatically installs the Mimecast SSL certificate into your system's keychain / certification root.
  • Allows users to log onto the agent to provide a granular policy based on users (SMTP Address), groups, or domains.
  • Allows administrators to easily track user activity in their organization via reporting.


The Mimecast Security Agent currently supports English (US) and German languages.
