While an email backup service is critical to protecting data from loss, corruption and cyber threats, selecting the right backup and recovery technology is essential to minimizing costs, reducing administrative burden and simplifying email management.
Deploying an email backup service is the only way to protect the knowledge, insight and business intelligence that email stores contain. As a record of day-to-day communications, email can provide employees with crucial and historical information about transactions, projects and other business matters. But all that corporate history is lost when data is unavailable due to corruption, accidental deletion or the impact of ransomware and other threats directed at email systems.
An email backup service can help to protect data by replicating and recovering email after accidental or malicious data loss. But many options for an email backup solution come with significant cost and administrative burden. On-premises mail recovery solutions can be difficult to maintain, with constant expenses for upgrading software, refreshing servers and expanding storage media. Cloud backup software can solve some of these problems – there is no hardware or software to install or maintain. But many cloud email backup services are complex to manage and can tie up system resources during a cloud backup.
To simplify and speed recovery after a data loss event, you need a cloud email backup solution that is powerful yet cost-efficient and easy to manage. That's where Mimecast can help.
