Improve Office 365 email archiving with Mimecast.

While Microsoft® Office 365™ offers great benefits for organizations moving their email to the cloud, Office 365 email archiving provides neither the functionality nor the security that most IT departments require.

Redundancy is an issue – Office 365 email archiving stores multiple copies of messages, but they reside within the same platform and architecture, establishing a single-point-of-failure. Office 365 email archiving also lacks robust compliance and e-discovery capabilities executive leadership and IT administrators will require. And Office 365 archiving options are insufficient for migrating and managing legacy email data archives.

That's where Mimecast can help. Providing secure, perpetual storage and simplified policy management, Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving offers comprehensive capabilities to support Office 365 email archiving.
