Reduce cost and complexity of email backup.

Reduce cost and complexity of email backup.

Email is the primary form of business communication today, making an email backup solution an essential piece of business infrastructure. Your email backup must serve many purposes – from demonstrating compliance to fulfilling litigation hold requests to providing access to the information employees need to be productive.

But traditional on-premises email backup systems are increasingly costly and complex to manage, consuming far more resources and IT staff time than most organizations can afford – especially considering the many other strategic IT priorities that also need attention.

Mimecast provides cloud-based email management with all the email backup power you need, along with email security and email continuity solutions in an all-in-one cloud platform – for a fraction of the cost1 of traditional email backup technology.

Email backup with Mimecast.

Mimecast Cloud Archive for Email is a highly-scalable and resilient email backup and archiving solution combining automated tools for administrators with fast access to data for employees. Cloud Archive for Email uses multiple collection points – including journal, gateway and synchronization technologies – to keep a copy of the original email, detailed meta-data, and a copy of the email if it was changed through policy enforcement. All inbound, outbound and internal email can be archived for instant searching by administrators and employees, radically simplifying email backup.

Mimecast's cloud email archiving software provides:

  • Automated retention management tools limit mailbox size, reducing storage overhead and infrastructure management costs2 for email backup.
  • Instant employee access to email, with a 7-second search SLA
  • Greater email availability with email access on any device, anywhere.
  • Comprehensive support for compliance, e-discovery and litigation requirements, including legal hold, data export and case management.
  • Encrypted, secure storage with triplicate copies of emails held in multiple geographically-dispersed data centers.
  • Pricing based on the number of your employees rather than the volume of your email backup, helping to lower TCO.

With this Mimecast solution, you can also archive file data and Lync IM conversations.
