Mimecast Web Security provides protection for users regardless of where they are. When connected to your company network, users are protected by the locations you have specified. However, if a user is roaming and connecting away from your network (e.g. using a public wi-fi hotspot) their device can still be protected by installing the Mimecast Security Agent.


This guide describes how you can list user devices protected by the Mimecast Web Security functionality when located away from a location protected by your corporate network.
