Branding enables Administrators to apply custom brand elements to external facing portals and notifications, giving your customers clear indication that the Portals and messages are provided by you. This helps with marketing your brand, and giving the user the reassurance that this is your service.
The following examples show how branding could look like in the messages and portals.
The Mimecast services that support branding are:
- Secure Messaging (SM)
- Large File Send (LFS)
- Mimecast Personal Portal (MPP)
- Targeted Threat Protection(TTP)
- Mimecast for Outlook. See the Mimecast for Outlook: Applying Branding page for further details.
As part of the configuration of these brand elements, a subdomain URL is created to personalize the portal for the organization. It is also possible to have multiple custom URLs if required.
Branding provides the following functionality:
- Portal decolorizing. This helps to set neutral color schemes for backgrounds and buttons to suit your brand.
- Application of a logo to the Login and Inbox pages. The standard Mimecast logo will be replaced with the new logo, and a “Powered by Mimecast” logo will be auto-added.
- Application of a Favicon in the browser address toolbar.
- Modification of the Login page title.
- Adjustment of the standard hyperlinks on the Login page.
- Addition of a Login page disclaimer message.
To confirm if branding is included with your current service subscription, contact your Mimecast representative.
Branding enables your organization to provide Mimecast webmail services to users, whilst simultaneously and consistently applying their corporate identity to these portals. If using Closed Circuit Messaging, this also ensures the visibility of the organization's brand to external recipients of CCM messages.
