There is no form of communication more prevalent in business than email. Which is why it’s surprising to discover how many organizations fail to employ every possible strategy to protect their email infrastructure from catastrophic failure. With Spear Phishing attacks (and other types of threats) happening regularly, and at a rapid pace, there has never been a better time to embrace a secure cloud-based platform for protecting and archiving your corporate email and data.
Which is where Mimecast comes in.
Mimecast offers an elegant solution to three of the most pervasive pain points and threats to email management on an organizational level.
1. Migrating to Microsoft Office 365
The adoption of new services, platforms, and programs on a company-wide scale is often an intense, headache-inducing task for both IT and leadership teams. Migrating your organization’s entire email infrastructure to the cloud is no small undertaking, and many small details can be lost between the cracks. Mimecast is designed to help organizations mitigate the risks of these transfers, and the platform has many features that are specifically tailored towards O365 integration. Mimecast can ensure that the move to O365 happens with zero downtime, risk, or data loss. Many key features of O365’s core functionality can be modified by Mimecast to suit your needs. Everything from secure inter-network messaging to accommodating large file shares can be integrated to ensure that your organization’s transfer to Office 365 is seamless.
2. Eliminating email downtime for good
In the era of the always-connected workplace, email downtime isn’t just inconvenient; it’s unacceptable. However, the demands of maintaining always-on email are both expensive and cumbersome, serving as a constant strain on the human resources and budgets of even the most experienced IT teams. Mimecast’s suite of Email Continuity Services are designed to remove this threat – even during a migration, and as standard offer a 100% SLA on email availability – both on PC and mobile devices, something unequalled in the industry. From access to email during outages (either from Outlook, mobile phone, or a web-based Mimecast Personal Portal) to continuity management, Mimecast ensures your email accounts are always up-to-date regardless of the technical difficulties that may arise.
