Mimecast is a cloud based email pre and post processing system for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365 that facilitates Email Protection. Email is delivered to Mimecast and pre-screened for spam and viruses and then delivered to your firm’s Exchange server on premises or in the Cloud. This is just the beginning of the Email Protection that Mimecast can provide however. Unlike other spam management systems, it also facilitates many productivity and data retention roles for the firm. These are described below:
Email Protection Through Continuity

Disruption in the flow of mail to and from your business can cause significant harm to the business. Mimecast Continuity mode allows mail to continue flowing even if your email system is not working. Continuity mode also provides the users access to their emails through mobile phones, Outlook WebApp and the Mimecast Application – available for both Android and iPhone smartphones. When your email system comes back up, Mimecast automatically synchronizes all of the changes made while your Exchange server was down so that your inbox doesn’t miss a beat!
