IT teams using or considering moving to Office 365 now have a choice of services offering additional compliance, email continuity and security, and tools for end-user productivity

London, U.K.:  Today Mimecast launched a range of cloud services and service bundles designed to enhance the core capabilities of Microsoft Office 365 in the areas of archiving, continuity and security. Mimecast expects IT administrators currently on, or considering migrating to, Office 365 to use its services to address a common need for extended compliance, governance, security and email continuity capabilities.

 

 

Mimecast Services for Office 365 also offer end-users anytime anywhere secure access to their full email and file archive from smartphones, tablets or the web with the added assurance of email availability in the event of any service issues with Office 365. In addition, users can send and receive files up to 2GB without leaving Outlook, by using Mimecast’s Large File Send capability.

Mimecast also believes IT administrators will utilise its services to support the safe and efficient migration of their mail environment from on-premises Microsoft Exchange (or other email services) to Office 365. In addition, Mimecast can facilitate the management of hybrid on-premise and cloud environments, where customers may wish to have some mailboxes managed on-site and others in the cloud.

Grant Hodgkinson, Product Director, Mimecast, added: “Office 365 is proving to be a popular consideration for many enterprises looking to reduce complexity and cost by using the cloud. If you want to use the cloud for productivity, messaging and collaboration, Office 365 is good, but with the addition of these Mimecast services, it is now great.”

He added: “Mimecast is the ultimate cloud companion if you are using Office 365 or looking to migrate. We bring a broad set of additional capabilities that are good for end-users who want email to be there 100% of the time and need to access their archive anywhere at any time. Plus we address, in a simple way, the serious compliance, governance, security and continuity concerns that have made some IT administrators resistant to the cloud and cautious about Office 365.
