Improving email data migration speed, accuracy and security
As organizations increasingly turn to cloud services to reduce costs and increase computing power, data migration for legacy email archives presents a growing challenge. Email archives represent an invaluable store of information, but ingesting and migrating legacy email to a cloud archive can be quite costly and can pose a compliance risk if email is lost, corrupted or breached during data migration. The process is further complicated by the need to determine which email has sufficient value to include it in data migration.
To minimize the risk of data migration as well as the cost and burden on IT teams, organizations need powerful migration solutions that use a proven methodology to ensure a successful transition to data archiving in the cloud. That's where Mimecast can help.
