Email Continuity Solutions

Keep business moving with email continuity solutions.

Email continuity solutions deliver always on email.

Email today is a business-critical asset, requiring email continuity solutions to ensure access to email 24/7. Employees have no patience for downtime – whether caused by a disaster or scheduled maintenance. Downtime means loss of productivity, customer service and revenue. Yet creating email continuity solutions providing constant email availability and zero downtime is often prohibitively expensive, requiring costly and complex duplicate systems.

Mimecast Mailbox Continuity delivers highly-effective email continuity solutions that keep emailing flowing during a disaster or planned downtime. When your email system goes down, Mimecast's email continuity solution enables your employees and customers to send and receive email, blissfully unaware a problem has occurred.

Email continuity solutions from Mimecast.

Mimecast's email continuity solutions automatically initiate an immediate failover when a downtime event takes place, providing employees with uninterrupted access to all live and historic emails and calendar information. Administrators can use a central administrative console to manage downtime of on-premises, cloud and hybrid primary email systems, simplifying management and minimizing the usual frenzy accompanying an outage.

Email continuity solutions from Mimecast also provide:

  • A solution free of hardware and software, enabling you to reduce costs1 and lower your IT overhead easily.
  • Continuity for up to seven days per outage.
  • Automatic synchronization of mailboxes after an outage to eliminate confusion.
  • Complete control of failover events and outages from the Mimecast Administration Console.
  • Instant failover and failback, helping to reduce recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs) for email to virtually zero.

During an outage, employees can access email through Outlook for Windows, through a native app for Mac, or from a mobile application.
