Ensure access with a cloud-based email continuity service.

An email continuity service is an essential part of your business IT infrastructure today. When email is unavailable due to a cloud provider outage, hardware failure, disaster or planned downtime, employee productivity suffers, communication is lost and profitability takes a hit. Traditional email continuity solutions require deploying complex and costly redundant systems, but a cloud-based email continuity service from Mimecast offers a far simpler alternative.

Employees can continue to send and receive email, completely unaware that a failover event has taken place. With Mimecast email continuity service, you can ensure complete email availability with zero downtime – at a fraction of the expense of traditional on-premises solutions1.
