Office365™ Archiving

Improve Office365 archiving with Mimecast.

Improve Office365 archiving with Mimecast.

While Microsoft® Office 365™ enables organizations to more easily deploy a cloud email system and eliminate on-premises email servers, Office365 archiving features don't provide users and administrators with the capabilities required for an enterprise-class email archiving program.

A superior email archiving solution incorporates and manages legacy archive data, but Office365 archive options don't provide tools to migrate and manage legacy data easily and cost-effectively. Office365 archiving also lacks sufficient compliance and e-discovery capabilities, adding another layer of burden to overtaxed IT administrators. And because all copies of email are stored within the same architecture and platform, Office365 archiving creates a single-point-of-failure without delivering the redundancy required of a robust archiving program.

Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving provides a rich set of cloud services to augment Office365 archiving capabilities. As an independent and perpetual archive in the cloud, Mimecast delivers superior redundancy, storing encrypted copies of email in multiple data centers that are geographically-dispersed. Mimecast also provides granular e-discovery and litigation hold capabilities for Office 365 archive email systems for compliance and evidentiary requests. And Mimecast significantly simplifies and speeds migration of legacy archive data while also providing tools to manage all historic and current email more easily.
