New Mimecast Services for Office 365 Add Critical Security, Archiving and Risk Management Capabilities
WATERTOWN, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Mimecast, the enterprise cloud services provider, has announced services
to support enterprises moving to Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365 by directly
addressing risks associated with data redundancy, high availability and
the need for protection against targeted attacks. Mimecast's new
services build on Office 365's key benefits - lower total cost of
ownership (TCO), greater agility, reduced complexity and improved
collaboration - by providing CIOs with a range of additional cloud
services that mitigate the risk of moving mission-critical applications
like email, as well as corporate data, to a single cloud vendor.
Orlando Scott-Cowley, director of technology marketing, Mimecast,
commented: "Increasing numbers of organizations want to move their
messaging, email and archiving to the cloud. But moving these critical
services to a single cloud vendor then raises additional concerns for
many that still need to be addressed before they are willing to move.
The combination of Microsoft and Mimecast cloud services means even the
most conservative of enterprises can embrace the cloud, and decommission
the expensive on-premises solutions that have built up on the LAN."
He continued: "Moving to the cloud doesn't negate the need for a broad
and effective business continuity plan. With the combined strength of
Mimecast's targeted set of solutions and Microsoft's industry-leading
cloud platform, organizations now have the ability to choose services
from more than one vendor, spreading the risk and protecting both their
data and end users. Mimecast's new services for Office 365 are the last
piece in the puzzle needed to enable enterprises to make the move to the
cloud without further delay."
