Microsoft Office 365 is a powerful business tool for collaboration and productivity, but Office 365 backup capabilities may not be sufficient for every organization.

Enterprise archiving and backup technology is critical for protecting against accidental or malicious loss of data and for complying with a wide variety of regulatory frameworks. In traditional on-premises environments, organizations often rely on best-of-breed hardware solutions and mail archiving software to achieve their backup objectives. When moving to Office 365, organizations may need similar cloud-based third-party solutions to fully protect data and improve Office 365 disaster recovery capabilities.

For organizations seeking to support their Office 365 environment with an easy and affordable backup solution, Mimecast offers a cloud-based suite of services for email security, continuity and archiving that provide comprehensive tools for Office 365 backup.
