What is Cloud Email?
Cloud email is an internet-based multi-tenant service that is easily scalable. Different from an on-premises email solution, cloud email is offered by vendors and essentially serves as a backup for your files - so in the event one of your systems goes down, you can easily retrieve your information from the cloud backup.
Cloud email is great for organizations of all sizes because it's scalable - meaning you can easily add or remove users from your system in just a few clicks. In addition, it is also consistently updated with the latest security features, diminishing the need to hire dedicated in-house IT professionals to monitor the email network.
Simplify email with cloud based email management
As you work to manage email more effectively and cost-efficiently, cloud based email management solutions from Mimecast offer dramatic advantages. Traditional email infrastructure typically involves single-purpose solutions designed to keep spam out, encrypt sensitive material, prevent data leakage, handle standard disclaimers, and manage email archives and backups. Yet with all this complex hardware and software – and the people required to manage it – achieving 100% uptime is still cost-prohibitive.
Mimecast's cloud based email technology provides a cloud platform with all-in-one solutions for email security, archiving and continuity. By offloading most of your email infrastructure to Mimecast's cloud based email solution, you can reduce the cost and complexity of managing email and simplify protecting your business in today's fast-changing security and risk environment.
The growing volume of email data in your organization is increasingly difficult to manage. A cloud email solution from Mimecast helps achieve email security, availability and continuity while minimizing cost and complexity.
Business email is one of the most important sources of business knowledge, corporate history and employee communication. When your email isn't working, neither is your business. Yet traditional solutions for protecting, archiving and backing up email are costlier to deploy and more difficult to manage than Mimecast.
Mimecast's cloud email solution minimizes cost, complexity and bandwidth by moving virtually all your email infrastructure to the cloud. With cloud email technology from Mimecast, you get a single cloud platform and an all-in-one solution for email archiving, email security and email continuity. With highly-resilient and scalable cloud architecture, Mimecast's email cloud services let you manage email far more effectively and cost-efficiently than traditional email solutions.
Mimecast's cloud-based email service provides an all-in-one solution to meet the challenges of managing and protecting business email.
Traditional on-premises solutions for email management and mobile email management often require organizations to deploy a disjointed array of point solutions for email security, archiving and continuity. Mimecast's cloud-based email service eliminates the complexity of managing email with a fully integrated subscription service that protects email from threats, simplifies retention and archiving and ensures mailbox continuity — at a fraction of the cost of on-premises solutions.
The role of email in business today is mission-critical. Your organization needs email security solutions in conjunction with your email platform. You need email archiving solutions so employees can find email quickly and administrators can easily comply with e-discovery and litigation-related requests. And you need disaster recovery capabilities, as any downtime quickly results in lost productivity, profits and customer confidence. As such, email cloud services offer significant benefits over on-premises email solutions.
As the volume of email and attachments grows, on-premises email infrastructure only becomes more unwieldy and complex. With cloud-based email solutions, on the other hand, you eliminate the hardware, software and single-purpose solutions comprising most on-premises email architecture. Cloud email services significantly reduce costs, simplify management and make it easy to scale as needed. With email cloud technology, TCO is lowered by using only the email cloud services you need and improve email availability by making email accessible anywhere in the world.
More enterprises today choose the email cloud platform from Mimecast when seeking cloud email solutions offering greater value and more powerful tools.
