Large File Send

The Challenge

To preserve the performance and availability of email systems organizations typically enforce a maximum size on email attachments. Unfortunately, particularly with large Microsoft Office files, employees often need to send and receive files which exceed those limits. Without an easy to use alternative, employees will often resort to using unauthorized and uncontrolled consumer grade file sharing services such as Dropbox.

This can often lead to unintended consequences such as sensitive data remaining on insecure file sharing systems. Organizations need to enable employees to send and receive large files as a seamless part of their email workflow, while staying in compliance with security policies.

Mimecast Solution

Mimecast Large File Send enables:

  • Users to send and receive files of up to 2GB, removing large traffic from the email system, without requiring a separate file-sharing service.
  • Users to create an email as usual, and attach and send large files, just as they do with smaller files.
  • Administrators to set policies for attachment size – the Mimecast cloud does the rest.
  • Integration into Outlook for Windows, Mac, or sending files via the mobile application.
  • Support of audit, e-discovery and compliance requirements by archiving files and logging transactions.
