Simplify email discovery with Mimecast.

Email discovery is a critical business capability today. As the central repository of communication for your organization, email plays a central role in demonstrating compliance with regulations, meeting disclosure requirements and responding to litigation. Your email discovery technology must easily manage and enforce data retention policies, provide data assurance and produce specific email content when needed.

Traditional solutions for email discovery involve labor-intensive tools for setting policies, retaining email and searching archives. With Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving, you'll significantly reduce the cost1 and complexity of managing email discovery for compliance, litigation hold and case management requirements and avoid the risks of failing to produce information as required by law.
