Mimecast Cloud Archive For Email

E-mail has become a business-critical service that most companies rely on. Unfortunately e-mail has become one of the biggest targets for attackers with most cyber attacks starting with a phishing e-mail.

For over a decade, Mimecast Cloud Archive for Email has been the industry standard. Using multiple collection points – from a combination of the journal, gateway and synchronization technologies – Mimecast Cloud Archive for Email retains the original email, detailed meta-data including email recipients and delivery date and time, and a copy of the email if it was changed by company policy enforcement. Mimecast Cloud Archive for Email archives all inbound, outbound and internal email for instant searching by employees and administrators.

  • Automated mailbox size and retention management to reduce email storage overhead and infrastructure management costs
  • Centralized control of email retention policies with three tamper-proof encrypted copies stored in separate locations to support data security and governance
  • 7 second search SLA to put information at employees' fingertips
  • Administrative global search and e-discovery cases for quick response to potential litigation with visibility to both original and policy-modified emails
MDI deploys mimecast to ensure that our customers have the best protection against spam, malware and phishing attacks.

When we include the additional services that include archiving and continuity, Mimecast becomes a key component of our mail security solutions.


With employees keeping an ever-increasing number of messages and attachments in their archive, storing this data is both costly and difficult to manage. Applying retention policies for regulatory and legal compliance to departments, groups and even individual mailboxes is essential. In the event of litigation, email is often relied on for evidence so you will need to respond quickly without dedicating precious IT resources.

Email archives are a primary record of business communication and a highly valuable corporate information asset – data that needs to be accessible and searchable, not locked away in a vault.


Continue to send and receive email no matter what.

Even the most secure, well-planned email systems go down. With continuity solutions an immediate failover means email flow is not interrupted in the event of an outage or planned maintenance. Mimecast keeps sending and receiving email when on-premises or cloud-based email systems go down.


Mimecast solves critical e-mail security issues with:

  • Targeted threat protection - Shield your employees and network from whaling, phishing and spear-phishing attacks.
  • Spam and multi-layered malware protection - Remove threats in the cloud before they reach your network.
  • Secure messaging and encryption - Company policies for sharing sensitive data are difficult to enforce, but with Mimecast Secure Messaging employees can specify controls on emails, or admins can apply settings at the gateway to ensure only intended recipients see confidential information.
  • Data leak prevention - Whether malicious or not, organizations simply can't afford to send sensitive information such as customer lists, financials, intellectual property or personally identifiable information externally without appropriate protection, if at all. Powerful scanning and quarantine features mean data is stopped at the gateway or sent securely so sensitive information is protected.
  • Secure large file sharing - With file size restrictions, users often use insecure file sharing services that put corporate data at risk. With Mimecast Large File Send, files up to 2GB can be shared directly through Microsoft Outlook for Windows. All files are subject to security and retention policies — and kept within company control.
