Email Migration Tool

    Use Mimecast's email migration tool to accelerate, simplify and reduce the cost of migration.

    The need for a better email migration tool

    To successfully move data from legacy archiving solutions to the cloud, organizations need an email migration tool that can help to accelerate, simplify and reduce the cost of migration.

    In the past, organizations have archived data in on-premise storage systems, but as the volume of data continues to expand exponentially, cloud storage solutions have become increasingly attractive, offering cost-effective storage that is easier to manage. For many companies, however, the cost and complexity of migrating legacy data prevents them from moving to these modern cloud-based archiving solutions. In addition, slow and resource-intensive migrations tend to make data available for unacceptably long periods of time.

    To simplify the transfer of data from legacy technologies to cloud-based solutions such as Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving, Mimecast provides a best-of-breed email migration tool in Simply Migrate.

    FAQs: what is an email migration tool?

    What is an email migration tool?

    An email migration tool is a technology that enables organizations to move email data from one platform to another. Many organizations today are moving data from on-premise email archives to the cloud in order to take advantage of opportunities for cost saving, simplified management and integrated data stores.

    How do I migrate to Office 365, Outlook or Exchange?

    Moving data from existing email data archives to Office 365 can be timing consuming, costly and risky. Data may be lost and the time required to transfer data can prevent users from accessing it during the migration process. Mimecast simplifies migration to Office 365 with an Exchange/Outlook migration tool that accelerates migration while significant reducing costs. Mimecast's solution also provides 0365/Exchange online protection, safeguarding data by storing multiple, encrypted copies and providing tamper-resistant chains of custody.
