The challenges of managing Office 365 cloud email.

The challenges of managing Office 365 cloud email.

Office 365 cloud email provides enterprises with significant benefits, including lower overhead, predictable costs, and greater simplicity in managing email systems. But Office 365 cloud email solutions cannot deliver the protection, continuity and data assurance that essential add-ons to on-premises email systems provide.

In traditional on-premises exchange environments, organizations invested in best-of-breed solutions to improve security, manage archives and ensure business continuity when email systems went down. While Office 365 cloud email alone cannot replace these add-on solutions, Mimecast offers a rich set of cloud services for Office 365 email security, archiving and continuity for unparalleled Office 365 enterprise support.

For organizations that have migrated to Office 365 cloud email, Mimecast helps mitigate single vendor exposure with best-of-breed services protecting against threats, providing fast access to email data, and ensuring email remains up and running in the event of a service outage.
