Overall Satisfaction with Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving

We use Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving company wide. It was an asset during our migration to Office 365 where we were able to easily recover all our old emails from the Mimecast Portal quickly and seamlessly. Mimecast's archive is designed in such a way that you can recover important emails only in case you don't find the emails on Exchange after the migration.
  • Quick email search capabilities.
  • Ability to view an old email within the archive without having to download it.
  • Great E-discovery capabilities as users do not have the ability to delete emails perpetually
  • Easy to use and manage
  • On the archive, all emails are highlighted hence you will not know when you have an unread email that you might have accidentally deleted on outlook but was automatically archived in Mimecast
  • We save on time required to search through hundreds of emails
  • Saves us on employee productivity by offering us business continuity when our mail service is unavailable
  • Exchange Online Archive
Users are not able to delete emails hence Mimecast EIA becomes a very useful tool during e-discovery. For EOA, they offer an inplace archive which means that emails can be deleted if the service is not turned on.
Given that Mimecast offers a bottomless archive, their archiving solution is best suited for organizations struggling with storage space for their ever growing mailbox. With the new sync and recover capabilities, you can use Mimecast's EIA as a DR for your mail service in case you loose data on the mail server and you want to recover it quickly to any point in time.

Another great scenario is when moving to a cloud service such as Office 365. There is always fear of loosing data during this migration hence having Mimecast EIA would offer your company peace of mind that your data is safe.
