Peter Bauer is the CEO and Co-Founder at Mimecast, which launched in 2003. The combination of next generation technology, a unified platform, and seamless integration with existing email systems is the driving force behind Mimecast’s success in its mission to transform the way people work amidst today’s ever changing threat landscape.
