Sync & Recover
Email Data Protection

The Challenge

Organizations moving to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud often discover only after migration that they need a separate solution for protecting their email data.

Because Office 365 offers no backup and recovery capability, these organizations have long faced three choices: back up to an on-premises infrastructure, deploy a cloud-based point solution, or do nothing and hope for the best. Each of these options brings disadvantages, inefficiencies, operational complexity, and unacceptable risk.

Mimecast Sync & Recover for Exchange and Office 365 offers an alternative solution that leverages our customers’ archive data to simplify data recovery, reduce cost and administrative burden, and increase business continuity.

The Solution

The Mimecast solution, Sync & Recover for Exchange and Office 365, gives organizations a simple, streamlined way to recover deleted or corrupted email, calendar, and contact data by leveraging archive data. Sync & Recover is an add-on bundle available to archiving subscribers that includes three modules: Mailbox and Folder Sync & Recover Tools, Granular Retention Management, and Mailbox Storage (Stubbing) Management.

Mimecast’s Sync & Recover for Exchange and Office 365 helps:

  • Unify management of compliance archiving and data resiliency
  • Streamline configuration of recovery and search
  • Provide a multilayered defense against Exchange data loss or damage due to ransomware and other malware
  • Enable cloud-to-cloud backup; no hardware or software to manage

 

MINIMIZE RANSOMWARE’S IMPACT With cloud-based Prevention, Continuity, and Recovery

  • Recover email services and data quickly and with minimal disruption to business operations.

Mimecast enables this layered ransomware defense strategy by providing prevention, continuity, and recovery functionality from a single multiservice cloud grid computing architecture powered by the Mime|OS operating system.
