Office 365™ Archive Email

Improve Office 365 archive email capabilities with Mimecast.

While Microsoft® Office 365™ solves many challenges of moving an email system to the cloud, Microsoft Office 365 archiving doesn't deliver the comprehensive archiving capabilities most enterprises require. Office 365 archive email capabilities lack sufficient capabilities for compliance and e-discovery, as well as tools to easily migrate and manage legacy archive data.

Office 365 archive features also can't provide redundancy most organizations demand — in the Office 365 archive, email copies are stored within the same platform and architecture, creating a single point-of-failure.

Mimecast offers a set of cloud-based services augmenting Office 365 archive email tools. Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving provides rapid search capabilities for users while giving administrators powerful tools for managing compliance, e-discovery and legacy data. And as an independent email archive in the cloud, Mimecast provides the built-in redundancy required of a strong email archiving program.
