Expert Insight:

Mimecast’s Cloud Archive is a popular archiving solution which will store emails, folders and whole mailboxes in a secure archive, where they cannot be edited. They guarantee full legal compliance for businesses, with a quick search function and easy management. Speed of search is important when it comes to email archiving, and Mimecast offer an SLA which guarantees that archive searching will take seven seconds or less. The platform offers auditing of everyone who has access to the archive, which is another important factor to achieve legal compliance.

While search is quick for individual email, exporting emails in bulk can be tricky, and may require support. Moving the archive to a different platform can also incur high export fees.
