Improve security with file sharing for business technology.

The right solution for file sharing for business can have a significant impact on productivity and security.

As the average size of presentations, images and videos continues to grow, sending these documents via email places a lot of strain on servers.

For this reason, IT administrators often restrict business file sharing by placing strict limits on the file sizes of attachments to email. Seeking the easiest way to transmit large files, employees frequently choose third-party, consumer-grade file sharing services that lack appropriate security and content controls. Consequently, sharing files through these services puts your data, users and the organization at much greater risk.

To securely send large files, you need a file sharing for business solution that lets employees send secure files and large attachments as part of their regular workflow.

Mimecast offers a cloud-based email solution that provides tools for managing email security, archiving and continuity more easily. Mimecast's all-in-one subscription service helps to reduce cost, minimize risk and eliminate the complexity of managing business email.
