Enhance Office 365 email archiving capabilities with Mimecast.

Microsoft® Office 365 cloud email provides tremendous value for organizations seeking to move their email system to the cloud, but Office 365 email archiving capabilities don't offer the robust set of tools most organizations require for strong archiving practices.

Office 365 email archiving capabilities don't allow administrators to easily migrate and manage legacy archive data. Office365 archiving also lacks sufficient compliance and e-discovery capabilities. And when it comes to redundancy, Office 365 email archiving capabilities create a single-point-of-failure by storing all copies of email within the same architecture and platform.

Mimecast augments Office 365 email archiving capabilities by providing a secure, perpetual archiving solution in the cloud that simplifies migration and management of legacy archive data, offers enterprise-class data protection and provides administrators with powerful tools to manage compliance, e-discovery and litigation requests.
