How to migrate to Office 365 with confidence.

As your organization prepares for an Office 365 email migration, your IT team will need to solve a number of challenges to migrate to Office 365 with confidence. Protecting against data loss and data corruption is priority number one, as valuable corporate information stored within mailboxes and archives can easily be lost during migration.

Maintaining security throughout the transition is also critical, as defenses may be dropped in the process, exposing your organization to advanced threats and other risks. And because email systems must often go offline during the transition to Office 365 cloud email – causing disruption to users and negatively impacting performance – finding a way to migrate to Office 365 quickly and efficiently is essential to maintaining productivity.

Mimecast provides invaluable tools for Office 365 archiving, security and continuity that help accelerate migration timelines, provide protection from advanced threats and mitigate data loss as you migrate to Office 365.
