Sending large files through email

Sending large files through email presents a challenge for IT.

Sending large files through email presents a challenge for IT.

Your employees routinely need to share large files with colleagues and collaborators, but sending large files through email can put an undue strain on your email system. To ensure performance, your IT administrators typically place file size restrictions on email attachments, causing employees to seek out alternatives to sending large files through email. These often involve third-party consumer services for secure large file transfer -- solutions that fall outside your organization's control, making it almost impossible to subject this content to policies concerning security, compliance, archiving and data leak prevention.

Mimecast can help. Our Large File Send solution lets employees send and receive files securely without small size limits on attachments when sending large files through email. By enabling employees to send files up to 2 GB from within their mailbox application, our secure email service removes complexity and frustration usually associated with sending large files through email while keeping information safe and secure within the control of IT administrators.
