Enhance Office 365 email security with Mimecast.

While Microsoft® Office 365™ provides great benefits for organizations moving email to the cloud, IT teams implementing this cloud solution may need to take steps to address Office 365 email security concerns.

Email continues to be the easiest point of exposure for data leaks as well as attacks by malicious individuals. For all of its strengths, Office 365 email security features can't fully mitigate all the threats facing an organization. In moving to the cloud, enterprises can no longer rely on the third-party point solutions deployed to fortify on-premises email systems and must instead seek cloud-based technology for superior Office 365 email security.

Mimecast provides a cloud-based suite of secure email services for Office 365 email security, enabling IT teams to protect organizational email systems and archives more easily.
