Fenwick Represents Elevate Security in Acquisition by Mimecast

Fenwick represented Elevate Security, a provider of human risk management solutions, in its acquisition by Mimecast, an advanced email and collaboration security company.

The acquisition strengthens Mimecast’s offerings by providing proactive insights and deeper visibility into human behaviors and risk, helping customers better protect the digital workplace. The Elevate Security platform has the flexibility to ingest human behavior and context data from a range of sources. It then flags high-risk people using a precision risk scoring algorithm. Combined with tools such as Mimecast’s Awareness Training, these capabilities can help drive targeted intervention and training that reduces overall risk and exposure for companies. More information can be obtained from Mimecast’s announcement.

The Fenwick transaction team was led by corporate partners Michael Brown and Ethan Skerry and associates Matt McCabe, Taimur Case, Matt Reiser and Aaliya Kapadia; technology transactions partner Joseph Schenck and associates Adine Mitrani and Alberto Tohme; executive compensation and employee benefits partner Matt Cantor and associate Jennifer Lin; tax partner William Skinner and associate Daphny Lazarus; and privacy counsel Ana Razmazma and associate Alyona Eidinger.
