Email, Security and the Cloud

Posted on 8.24.2009

SaaS email management specialist Mimecast upgraded its Unified Email Management platform to include functionality which “helps businesses address increasing industry regulations and concerns around data retention and e-Discovery”.

The company’s new archiving, mailbox management and data protection features allow companies to control their inboxes while preventing data leaks. Relying on its MSE (Mimecast Services for Exchange) offering, a software component which binds Exchange directly with the Mimecast SaaS environment, Mimecast is successfully bridgning the gap between SaaS email archiving and on-premise solutions.

Neil Murray, CTO at Mimecast said, “Most organizations are demanding more out of their email management software. This is largely due to the need to integrate email archives directly with Exchange environments for compliance and mailbox management. Mimecast focuses on ensuring that by moving to SaaS, IT managers will not have to give up sophistication of applications or control.”

Mimecast also introduced a range of new capabilities to its Unified Email Management platform such as granular Litigation Hold (prevents emails that relate to any current or anticipated legal action from being deleted) and Ediscovery Case Management (which allows multiple searches to be aggregated together alongside forward collection to provide a complete, legally admissible log of each case). Metadata Removal helps prevent information being leaked by stripping background data such as tracked changes or previously inserted comments out of attachments before it is allowed outside the firewall.
