Wigmore Hall Case Study - Mimecast Email and MS Exchange
  • Cloud migration Icon
  • Exchange Icon


The Wigmore Hall IT team had a legacy Microsoft Exchange platform hosted on-site, but they were conscious that it needed a refresh in order to maintain their IT security protocols. With so many emerging cyber threats against businesses, the Wigmore Hall team were investigating ways to add additional layers of IT security to their infrastructure.

They were also concerned about the functionality of their legacy Exchange environment, which required updates to improve signature management and resilience, message and object recovery and continuity.


After a consultative planning process, Wigmore Hall selected SysGroup to design and migrate their messaging platform to a cloud-based Microsoft Exchange environment. Mimecast email security tools were the ideal complement to the Exchange environment, offering Wigmore Hall a proven way to mitigate risks from email-based cyber-attacks.

The solution included:

Mimecast email security installation and configuration including,

  • Targeted Threat Protection against malicious links and attachments
  • 2FA for enhanced security and end-user visibility
  • Advanced spam and junk mail filtering
  • Mimecast integration with Microsoft Exchange
  • Enhanced business continuity through the cloud-hosted Exchange environment
  • Admin Training to master the new tools

The project took 6 weeks from start to finish, and led to these key benefits for Wigmore Hall:

  • Increased confidence in the reliability and resilience of their messaging platform
  • End-user visibility and transparency in adherence to their employee information security training protocols
  • Fulfilled requests from the charity trustees to boost overall cyber-security threat protection and ensure business continuity
  • Enhanced focus on IT security for their business-critical Exchange platform


Email security is an important way to protect our business-critical functions. By adding Mimecast to our messaging platform, we are giving ourselves the best possible chance to mitigate the risks from incoming threats. We have a strong relationship with SysGroup. In our experience with the professional services they have provided, they have been exceptionally well‐skilled.
