Email management in the cloud

Where next?

We take the pain out of handling your organization’s most important data: the information that passes through your email systems.

Email management with no complexity and less cost

Effective email management is vital to every business, and IT departments need a practical strategy that is low risk, future proof, immediately affordable, easy to implement and manage, and has a predictable cost profile over the many years of email management that lie ahead.

Mimecast provides email management as a single service in the cloud that helps you slash on-premise email storage requirements, ensure complete email availability, email security and email compliance, while providing services to help you get more from your email.  We call it "Unified Email Management".

Find out more about the core services of Mimecast’s platform:

  • Email Continuity – keep users working during outages, backed by 100% service availability SLA
  • Email Security – complete protection from spam, viruses, malware, phishing, and data leaks
  • Email Archiving – ‘bottomless’ mailboxes, Outlook integration, real-time searches, complete security and audit trails for full email compliance

Email Continuity

Can’t work during an email outage? Now you can.

It’s funny how often the things we take for granted are the things we depend on most. Email, for example, has quietly become the most critical form of business communication. Unfortunately, it’s not always as reliable as it is important.

Because businesses can no longer afford an email outage for any length of time, we created an email continuity service that keeps email up and running during planned or unplanned outages.

Email Continuity: Always-on and seamless

Mimecast delivers email availability through automatic service failover and failback in near real-time during an email outage. It integrates so seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook that only your IT staff will even notice it kick in. The rest of your employees will be able to carry on using email safely and securely – whether the email outage is planned or otherwise – making email continuity an essential part of your business continuity plan.

Guard your revenue and reputation during an email outage

Mimecast ensures you’re always able to communicate with your customers and that, even during an email outage, your users continue working uninterrupted – with all email policies in force.

Service options to support complete email availability

Our email continuity service supports Outlook, Webmail and smartphones – offering uninterrupted email and calendar information for office staff, remote workers, people on the move, and employees in temporary locations.

100% service availability SLA

We have a series of geographically dispersed, highly-secure data centers, each with built in safeguards to protect against individual device or media failure.

This means we can offer a 100% service availability SLA.

Benefits for end users

  • No action required by end users for service invocation
  • Access live & historical email via familiar email clients
  • Calendar available during Exchange outages
  • Anytime web access if usual email is unavailable

Email Security

As the range of email threats has grown – alongside your legal and regulatory obligations – systems for email security and encryption have become ever more complex. We think businesses have to spend far too much time and money trying to secure email systems; resources that would be better directed at core business operations.

Email security for every inbound or outbound threat

Our email security offering provides the most comprehensive, cloud-based email risk mitigation available in the market today. Backed by stringent availability and security SLAs, along with flexible email encryption options, it cuts cost and complexity, removing threats in the cloud to reduce your risks and improve overall email server performance. It is also built to ensure you can meet data security and privacy obligations governing everything from health information to payment card processing information in emails.

 We protect against inbound and outbound email-borne threats. This includes malware, spam, phishing, DoS & DDoS attacks, deliberate or accidental data leaks, outages, and social engineering attacks.

Rapidly deployed and immediately effective

Up-and-running in just hours, you’re protected immediately – while our reputation management capabilities minimize false positives, meaning good email is always prioritized.

Benefits for end users

  • No more unwanted mail
  • Interactive email quarantine digests from Outlook
  • Minimal administration for users
  • Easy-to-use
  • User-invoked secure email communication

Email Archiving

Don’t just store email.   Make it work for you.

Email archiving is a critical requirement for every organization, but essential that it is centralized and secure. Email archiving should be about more than just email storage for the sake of record keeping and compliance. 

Our archiving services cut the cost and complexity of secure, accessible email archiving. It gives your users instant access to every email they’ve ever sent or received and it gives you central control of email retention policies. The result is: reduced costs to store email, a lighter load for your Exchange server, and greater productivity – with staff able to access archived email in real-time and without the need for technical support.

As much storage as you need, whenever you need it. No more email backups

Our cloud-based platform stores all your email – internal and external – in a highly secure and resilient archive, giving you as much space as you need. The default storage period is ten years and we charge by the number of users, giving you predictable storage costs. The result is your business need never risk losing important data due to server, storage, budgetary, or mailbox constraints. No more user deletion or employees hoarding emails in PSTs. 

Instant access

Our parallel grid storage architecture means that searches over your entire email archive are returned in near real-time through a standard Microsoft Outlook interface – or through our secure webmail interface. This makes an email from ten years ago as accessible as one sent today.

Benefits for end users

  • Bottomless mailboxes for end users
  • Personal email archive access from MS Outlook
  • 'Drag and drop' between Outlook and Mimecast archive
  • Near real-time search
  • Familiar personal folder structures presented in Webmail interface
  • Anytime, anywhere access to archived email
