Email Security Mimecast

Introduction to Mimecast

Mimecast is a business email solution that offers cloud email services for email security, continuity and archiving of emails.

What is Mimecast?

Mimecast is an email security and email archiving system that prevents hacking and phishing, while archiving emails in storage. Should there be a security threat email can be accessed and retrieved.

Email Security

  • Protects your email system against infiltration, as well as running routine checks against spam, viruses and malware that might corrupt your emails.

Email Archiving

  • Employees keep an ever-increasing number of messages and attachments in their archive. Mimecast provides the secure, perpetual storage and policy management necessary.
  • With an industry-leading 7 second search, archived information is instantly accessible, making it easy for employees or administrators to find a single email or to support a larger e-discovery case.

Business Continuity

  • Planning for disaster recovery and scheduling maintenance can be complex. Downtime means potential lost revenue, and impacts customer service and productivity. When an outage does happen, consistent communication and fast service restoration are an absolute must.
