    Email Continuity Management


    When email is disrupted, response time is critical

    Every minute of an unplanned email outage can cost businesses thousands of dollars. Mimecast’s Continuity Event Management service minimizes response times to mail flow issues by allowing administrators to proactively monitor high latency or failed deliveries. Real-time alerts notify IT staff of service disruptions, while users receive notifications on how to stay connected to email when the primary system is unavailable.


    The challenges of email continuity management

    Email downtime costs organizations thousands in lost revenue, impacts productivity, and creates customer service challenges. Whether your organization is running email on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid environment, email downtime is a major disruption to the business.

    Mail system downtime can result from cyberattacks, unplanned events, and planned migrations. No matter the cause, administrators need tools to get your organization connected and productive, quickly and easily, without the need for costly hardware and software. And it needs to be available when you need it most, within seconds of an incident.
