Mimecast's cloud backup and recovery technology automates data recovery, ensuring that organization's have access to the freshest data.
When trying to protect email data from loss, corruption and cyberattack, a cloud backup solution can dramatically reduce the expense and administrative headache of email data recovery.
Email is essential to business today. As the preferred form of communication for most employees, email not only facilitates day-to-day operations but serves as a vital and historic record of conversations, understandings, transactions and business intelligence. Protecting against data loss and corruption is essential to ensuring that the insight and knowledge in email stores is constantly available to employees and decision-makers.
Email must also be defended from attacks by malicious individuals seeking to use this ubiquitous technology to get past cyber defenses. Failure to protect email from malware, ransomware and other threats can lead to serious security breaches while making email unavailable to users.
A cloud backup solution provides an easy way to replicate email data to a secure, off-site location. With no hardware or software to maintain, cloud backup enables email protection to be implemented quickly and with less capital expense. But many cloud backup software solutions are nevertheless difficult to maintain, adding additional burden to IT teams already faced with constrained budgets.
That's where Mimecast is different. Offering a powerful yet easy-to-use cloud backup and recovery solution, Mimecast takes the pain and expense out of managing email protection and email retention.
Mimecast Sync & Recover for Exchange and Office 365 offers a simple and streamlined email backup service that simplifies and speeds recovery when email data is lost to corruption, deletion or attack. Sync & Recover is an optional feature for use with Mimecast Cloud Archive, a powerful data archiving service that stores multiple copies of email, files and IM conversations in the cloud.
Mimecast's cloud backup technology automatically syncs email data up to six times a day, making it easy to recover up-to-date email, folders, calendar items and contact lists when a data loss event occurs.
Mimecast's cloud email backup also provides granular retention management that simplifies policy-based retention of email content and metadata. Administrators can define retention policies at the Exchange folder or mailbox level, and can automate complex rules for user archive retention or administrative retention. Additionally, Mimecast's email backup solution provides mailbox storage management features for automatic control of mailbox sizes.
Mimecast's cloud backup solution can play a critical role in mitigating the effect of a successful ransomware attack. When a ransomware attack occurs, Mimecast cloud backup technology enables administrators to quickly reconnect users with their email, calendar and contacts, protecting users and the organization from the devastating effects of a successful ransomware campaign.
