Archiving, Risk & Compliance

Keep corporate data safe for instant search and retrieval

The Challenge

With employees keeping an ever-increasing number of messages and attachments in their archive, storing this data is both costly and difficult to manage. Applying retention policies for regulatory and legal compliance to departments, groups and even individual mailboxes is essential. In the event of litigation, email is often relied on for evidence so you will need to respond quickly without dedicating precious IT resources.

Email archives are a primary record of business communication and a highly valuable corporate information asset – data that needs to be accessible and searchable, not locked away in a vault.

Mimecast Solution

Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving provides the secure, perpetual storage and policy management necessary with the predictable costs and scalability of a true cloud architecture. With an industry-leading 7 second search SLA, archived information is instantly accessible, making it easy for employees or administrators to find a single email or to support a larger e-discovery case.

Mimecast solves important archiving challenges by:

A single, unified archive in the Mimecast cloud delivers scalability, rapid information access and data assurance — without the spiraling expense of hardware and software typical of legacy on-premises solutions.
