Data Retention & Compliance

    Protect your email and collaboration data with a robust, secure archive

    Simplify compliance and ensure data is never lost

    For organizations across all industries, the data challenge has never been greater. Companies are deluged with unstructured data — from emails and their attachments to instant messages exchanged over platforms like Microsoft Teams. All this data must be made secure, discoverable, and compliant. The consequences of not doing so are more severe than ever.

    Mimecast Cloud Archive helps you bring the data problem down to size by simplifying compliance, dramatically reducing the time and cost of e-discovery searches and ensuring data is never lost. A 7x Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader that’s fully integrated with Mimecast Email Security, it meets the needs of a wide variety of stakeholders, from legal and compliance to IT, HR, and end users. The result? Risk is reduced, productivity is increased, and your data becomes what it should be — an asset, not a liability.
