Migrate email systems confidently with no service disruptions

The Challenge

Migrations are complex and risky whether upgrading your email server or moving to a cloud-based mail system.

IT departments often face hard choices that have serious business consequences when migrating email systems. Valuable corporate data stowed within mailboxes and archives is often lost when moving from legacy applications. Layers of protection against advanced threats are dropped during the transition. Mail systems go offline, disrupting productivity and impacting performance. In order to minimize disruption, IT organizations are often forced to conduct migration activity during off hours whether it’s a gradual or accelerated switchover.


Mimecast Solution

Ensure uninterrupted access to email services during migration and continue to apply security and archiving policies consistently across legacy and destination environments. Significantly reduce the time and data volume required to migrate mailboxes with cloud flexibility.

Mimecast solves important migration challenges by:

Moving from Exchange to Office 365

Mitigating the email risks of external attacks, corporate data loss and operational downtime can’t be done by relying on a single vendor.

Ensure layered protection is in place, valuable on-premises information is accessible and employee mail flow won’t be impacted — before, during and after a migration.
