A solution tightly integrated with Exchange can greatly reduce the costs and complexities involved in managing your email
Your business needs
Email is now so ubiquitous, so intrinsic to a business’s operational needs that it is impossible to imagine a working day without it. Indeed, we have all experienced the near-complete paralysis that occurs in the modern workplace when the network or email server goes down. And because email has become so ingrained in corporate life, managing enormous and ever-expanding email archives is now a key issue for organisations worldwide.
Primarily, email security is expected to rigorously protect your network against the increasingly sophisticated threat of spam and malware attacks. Your approach to email management and security, however, must be holistic, with further safeguards put in place to prevent data lossand to guarantee regulatory compliance.
In today’s austere business climate, IT departments are expected to deliver premium, valuable solutions – and all at a reduced cost. Moreover, this must be achieved in an environment accustomed to regularly changing requirements.
Many businesses are burdened by the demands of managing Exchange in-house, with IT staff expectedto deliver a continuous service to an increasingly mobile workforce, via a wide range of internet-enabled devices. Managing a fragmented network of ancillary services such as anti-virus, anti-spam, policy management and email archiving can be a time-consuming and costly exercise, absorbinga good chunk of your resources.
For a growing number of organisations, cloud delivered technology solves these issues. Migrating to a cloud-based email management solution has negated myriad risks, such as downtime and data leakage, and the knock-on effects they can have.
A cloud based solution to email retention
Innovative cloud-based technology offers revolutionary alternatives and solutions, and is a trend that looks here to stay. It’s easy to see why.
An effective cloud delivered solution is able to unify the previously separate and disparate functions of email archiving, security, continuity and policy management – providing end-to-end control through one central interface. If integrated with Outlook, a solution delivered from the cloud gives users self-serve access to personal archives from a familiar interface, with a ‘drag and drop’ facility betweentheir personal archives and Outlook mailboxes. In and outbound email is directed through the cloud platform,so incoming mail is screened and comprehensively checkedfor threats before it reaches the network.
And underpinning this unified email management system is its value for money, thanks to reduced capital outlay, lower overheads and simplified administration.
Jerry Hook, Manager of Windows Systems at University of Tennessee Medical Center, found an answer that ticks every box: “With one service, we could get not only anti-spam and anti-virus, but also email retention and retrieval, disaster recovery and policy management… Mimecast’s attention to detail, their support and the quality of their people are outstanding. Mimecast does exactly what they said it would do.”
