At MGA, we are constantly looking for ways to make the complex simple — for both our team members and our clients. While we take many precautions in today’s world of hackers and scammers to protect your sensitive data, we have been working hard to find and implement a “simpler” solution when it comes to emails and security.

We are excited to share that we have recently invested in Mimecast’s Secure Messaging feature which will allow any of our team members to send you secure, confidential documents and information directly via email. Think documents containing your social security number or your credit card number, for example.

In this blog post, we have put together the basics of using Mimecast’s Secure Messaging service — logging in, reading and replying to messages within the system, requesting a new password, and more.

The Ultimate Guide To Using Mimecast’s Secure Messaging

  • If an MGA staff member sends you confidential information or documents containing confidential information, you will receive the following email from them (subject field will appear as “Miller Grossbard Advisors, LLP Secure Email”).
