Enhance Office 365 archiving with Mimecast.

Enhance Office 365 archiving with Mimecast.

While Microsoft® Office 365™ provides a viable solution for organizations moving their email system to the cloud, Office 365 archiving capabilities are often insufficient for enterprise data retention requirements.

Office 365 archiving enables multiple copies of email data to be stored, but all copies live within the same architecture and platform, creating a single-point-of-failure. Office 365 archiving also lacks sufficient capabilities for compliance and e-discovery. And migrating and managing a legacy archive with Office 365 archiving tools can be extremely costly and time-consuming.

Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving offers a best-of-breed solution supporting and enhancing Office 365 archiving options. Providing long-term retention and protection of email data, Mimecast's scalable cloud platform enables search and retrieval of any email within seconds, and provides administrators with comprehensive tools to support compliance, e-discovery and litigation requests
