Mimecast launches multipurpose archive solution

Mimecast today announced the launch of Mimecast Cloud Archive, the leading multipurpose archive solution built for the cloud.

The leading email and data security company delivers an all-in-one cloud service that integrates: built in data recovery, storage management, e-discovery, a secure data repository and compliance capabilities.

Mimecast Cloud Archive allows customers to access their email archive anywhere, anytime, and on any device.

Mimecast also revealed new data, revealing organisations’ top challenges with archiving solutions.

According to new global data from Mimecast and Vanson Bourne, 88% of organisations responded that they have experienced problems with their existing archiving solution. Nearly 60% cite administrative complexity as a top challenge, while 48% experience a lack of scalability.

Mimecast Cloud Archive latest innovations enable:

  1. E-Discovery and compliance are made easy by leveraging the fastest search performance in the industry. Robust, intuitive tools simplify administrative and e-discovery searches for IT administrators, compliance teams, and legal professionals.
  2. Data recovery with Sync & Recover offers independent, immutable, always-available archives to hedge against data loss or corruption, giving organisations a means to restore their Outlook content – including email, personal folders, calendar entries and contacts – should misfortune strike.
  3. Business insights found in Case Review App to allow for fast, effective search of email and attachment data to serve myriad missions, including compliance reviews, litigation case assessments, and internal policy audits. Additionally, Mimecast’s latest integration with Salesforce.com allows for Cloud Archive access and fast search capabilities within the CRM tool.
  4. Long-term data preservation with the archiving of email and attachment data into perpetuity, with no additional fees or charges for storage or retention duration.

Peter Bauer, chief executive officer, said: “Most email archiving technology was built when email usage was much different. With email being the top communications channel for business, it’s growing at a rate where these on-premises solutions can’t keep up Mimecast.

“Archive needs to be thought of as a digital memory – with multiple dimensions that secure corporate data, empower employees with anywhere, anytime access to email, and ensure regulatory and compliance obligations are met. With Cloud Archive, we’re able to give customers the confidence and control they need, with the industry’s fastest search speeds, to get more value from their email data today.”
