Business Continuity

Keep email running – your business depends on it

The Challenge

Planning for disaster recovery and scheduling maintenance can be complex, but employees and organizations have zero tolerance for downtime. Downtime means potential lost revenue, and impacts customer service and productivity. When an outage does happen, consistent communication and fast service restoration are an absolute must.

For individual companies, the cost of ensuring zero downtime is massive. It seems the only way to avoid system downtime is by investing in duplicate systems.

Once back online, administrators need to help employees fix problems such as gaps in restored data. Continuity events are difficult to plan for, respond to and resolve.


Mimecast Solution

Mimecast C1 Mailbox Continuity or integrated service bundles M2 or M2A ensure email flows without requiring significant investments for disaster recovery or managing the complexity of redundant systems. Mimecast continues to send and receive email during email server outages with admin controlled monitoring, alerts and one click response. Employees continue to access email as usual and often are blissfully unaware a problem has even occurred.

Mimecast solves critical continuity challenges with:
