Email is the most ubiquitous method of communication across any kind of business.  As enterprises move forward with their digital transformation journeys, mobile is becoming an integral aspect of their activities and email allows them to stay connected and be productive while on the go. This is why more and more organisations today are rethinking their strategies to ensure their workforce can have secure and seamless access to information anytime and anywhere.

Mimecast has, today at GITEX Technology Week, launched its new Cloud Archive solution. The latest offering from the email and data security firm delivers an all-in-one cloud service that integrates a secure data repository, built-in data recovery, storage management, e-discovery and compliance capabilities.

“The targeted landscape has amplified just over the last few years, which makes quick, secure and seamless access to data now more important than ever,” said Brandon Bekker, managing director, Africa and Middle East, Mimecast. “To help organisations address this issue, we have refocused and enhanced our archiving solution, Mimecast Cloud Archive, to help organisations have more control over their email data while ensuring that it is protected.”

Mimecast Cloud Archive is designed and optimised for the cloud, offering the scale, performance and advanced features needed to manage email. 

The new solution includes new and enhanced features focusing on e-discovery, which helps users simplify administrative searches. It also has the Sync & Recover feature, which makes archive always-available and safe from data loss or corruption. This allows organisations seamlessly restore their Outlook data including email, personal folders, calendar entries and contacts.

“Traditional archiving solutions tend to be complex, expensive and requires a lot of resources for monitoring it,” said Bekker. “Mimecast is offering Cloud Archive at a fixed and reasonable cost, it’s simple to use, secure and very easy to manage.

“Another major differentiator of Cloud Archive is its quick search time. As our platforms grow, we made sure that our archive speeds up from a search point of view. We have highly usable mobile applications that give users fast interaction and access to their email archives,” added Bekker.

In addition, with the implementations of new requirements for data governance, Bekker said that Cloud Archive has been designed with an emphasis on data integrity, availability, and privacy.
