Expand your Office 365 archiving options with Mimecast.

Microsoft® Office 365™ is a powerful option for organizations seeking to eliminate on-premises email servers and move email data to the cloud. But Office 365 archiving options leave a lot to be desired, making the decision to adopt this popular productivity suite more difficult.

Office 365 archiving options don't provide adequate tools for compliance and e-discovery, adding an extra burden to IT departments already facing shrinking budgets and staffs. Office 365 archivingcapabilities don't offer satisfactory tools for migrating and managing legacy archive data. And while Office 365 archiving creates multiple copies of email, all copies reside within the same platform, creating a single-point-of-failure that doesn't deliver the redundancy required for enterprise-grade archiving practices.

Mimecast can help. Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving provides a rich set of cloud services designed to help Office 365 customers mitigate the risks of moving email infrastructure to the cloud and remove barriers to adoption. Addressing key security, redundancy and compliance requirements, Mimecast augments Office 365 archiving options with fast search tools and granular e-discovery and litigation hold capabilities to rapidly identify, control and retrieve archived data.
