Manage IM conversations with Lync archiving technology.

Manage IM conversations with Lync archiving technology.

As more organizations turn to Microsoft Lync® to round out a unified communication strategy, a superior Lync archiving solution can help to manage instant messaging (IM) conversations more easily.

Like digital files and email, instant messages are often required to be stored for compliance and discovery purposes. But many information archiving solutions fail to integrate Lync messages in a way that drives down cost and reduces administrative burden.

Mimecast Cloud Archive for Lync IM provides a secure and easy-to-use solution for Lync archiving, storing instant messages alongside secure email and file archives in the Mimecast cloud. With Lync archiving from Mimecast, you can protect important intellectual property, strengthen compliance and reduce costs1 by retaining instant message conversations and content in a secure, indexed and unified archive.
