    Having strong data is one thing. Protecting and extracting its value is another

    With more data — and more regulations to govern it — than ever before, businesses can afford little tolerance for data management missteps. Whether responding to an e-discovery request, recovering an accidentally deleted file or accessing email during a server outage, businesses need a simple way to manage, protect and quickly access their valuable data without incurring undue cost or risk.

    Tame complexity, reduce costs and mitigate risks with GRC solutions

    • Save time and money with comprehensive in-house e-discovery and litigation support.
    • Secure, protect and retain essential business data in accordance with data sovereignty regulations with support for distributed global data centers.
    • Leverage a cloud-based archive to quickly recover deleted, corrupted or stolen mail, calendar and contact data regardless of where your email solution resides.

    Handle any e-discovery request with composure

    Massive amounts of unstructured data make it challenging to quickly respond to e-discovery, audit or other legal compliance requests. But organizations need the confidence to act, no matter the ask. With Mimecast’s self-service e-discovery capabilities, organizations will always be poised to handle legal and regulatory challenges, all while keeping their — and their customers’ — information secure.

    Make e-discovery more manageable by proactively locating and eliminating duplicate, outdated or unimportant data. Accurate and consistent searches help you spend less time in the weeds and more time on higher-value activities. And compared to third-party solutions that charge by the hour, Mimecast can, on average, reduce the time it takes to research an e-discovery request from 100 hours to eight hours, according to Forrester.

    It's your data — make it viable, accessible and secure

    Data governance is no longer optional. From GDPR to POPIA and everything in between, it’s safe to say regulations aren’t going away, existing ones evolve, and new ones appear — posing significant and ever-changing risks for companies of all sizes. Meanwhile, new policies concerning data sovereignty can complicate how data is stored and shared across borders.

    With data centers around the world, Mimecast makes it easy to comply with national and local regulations and data sovereignty issues. Securely route and store email, customer information and other vital data in accordance with data residency laws, giving your clients, auditors and vendors peace of mind wherever they reside.

    Make backup, recovery and archiving a breeze

    If employees can’t access the data they need, when they need it, productivity falls. But emails get deleted, files get corrupted and outages happen, making data resiliency key to an organization’s success. And as companies begin to collaborate with a wider variety of communication and messaging tools, data protection, investigation and recovery becomes more challenging.

    Mimecast takes the cost and complexity out of backup and recovery with granular search capabilities that rapidly retrieve mailboxes, calendars and contacts. And our cloud-based archive extends beyond email to provide a fully integrated solution that supports backup and recovery, e-discovery and data protection in cloud messaging and collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams.
