Mimecast® Named in ‘Outsourcing email archiving: 2009’ report by leading analyst firm
Increase in companies moving from in-house to outsourced email archiving
London and Boston, MA: Mimecast has been included in the list of outsourced email archiving service providers in the Gartner “Outsourcing E-Mail Archiving: 2Q09 Update” by Adam W. Couture, on April 27th 2009. The report examines the benefits and capabilities of today's hosted e-mail archiving solutions and profiles key service providers in this market.
According to the Gartner report, “Organizations should consider using service providers to help them quickly implement interim or permanent solutions without heavy upfront investments in technology or internal expertise. Consider using a service provider for not just archiving, but also for email continuity, virus protection and spam filtering.”
Given the increase in email volumes and sizes of attachments, the Gartner report also highlights, “For organizations looking to capture and save everything, with limited or no mailbox management requirements, a hosted solution may be more cost-effective than an in-house solution. Increased use of on-site appliances for bandwidth and encryption management, plus the addition of attachment management and attractive pricing have made hosted solutions much more competitive with in-house solutions.”
Mimecast CEO Peter Bauer comments, “We are pleased to be included in this Gartner report. Mimecast uniquely offers organizations an outsourced option to in-house email management that covers all the bases – email archiving, continuity and security. We’ve seen rapid movement in this market as customers wish to acquire technology that integrates outsourced email archiving within an overall email management framework. This is reflected in Mimecast’s fast growing market share in the outsourced email archiving market.”
Adding, “Outsourced solutions such as Mimecast alleviate the complexity and resource intensiveness of in-house archiving, and can significantly reduce the capital and ongoing running costs.”
