Ensure Office 365 business continuity with Mimecast.

While many organizations are turning to Microsoft Office 365 for cloud-based productivity tools, Office 365 business continuity is not a guaranteed 100%. Even with a platform as popular as Microsoft 365 email hosting, users must expect an occasional email outage.

The impact of an Office 365 business continuity event can be huge. Employees rely on email 24/7 to communicate with colleagues, vendors and customers, and when email stops working, so does the business.

Mimecast's integration service is designed to simplify email management and improve email security, Mimecast enables organizations to augment Office 365 business continuity with continuous access to email even when Office 365 is down.

Mimecast solutions for Office 365 business continuity.

Mimecast Mailbox Continuity supports Office 365 business continuity by ensuring that users have access to live and historic email and attachments during a disaster, outage or planned downtime. When an Office 365 business continuity event occurs, IT administrators simply trigger a continuity event and switch all email clients to send and receive email via the Mimecast platform. Users can then continue to access email from any location, on any device. Backed by a 100% service availability SLA, Mimecast enables users to stay productive during disasters, outages and planned downtime.

Mimecast can also support an email system migration plan when transitioning to Office 365 by providing security, backup and continuity to protect against downtime, data loss or corruption and email-borne threats.
