Mimecast, a leading supplier of cloud-based e-mail archiving, continuity and security, has announced that BetterBond will be using the cloud-based Mimecast unified e-mail management (UEM) solution to manage, archive, secure and ensure the availability of its e-mail system to any Web-enabled computer.
E-mail forms the core of BetterBond’s entire organisation, as documentation is sent and received via fax to e-mail solutions. There is no room for error.
“Simply put, Mimecast fitted this brief,” says Warren Perry, BetterBond IT manager. “We needed to ensure company e-mail is robust and dependable. Therefore, we explored how to improve archiving, compliance, e-discovery and e-mail security, elements we think are core to the optimum functioning of an e-mail service.”
Regulatory compliance increasingly involves e-mail communication with industry regulators and government bodies encouraging and mandating rules concerning record management and retention. To easily manage e-mail compliance, BetterBond needed a simple and cost-efficient e-mail archiving and e-discovery solution.
“BetterBond needed an e-mail archiving solution that was more cohesive and holistic in its approach towards regulatory compliance and e-mail archiving, not more hardware or resources to manage and monitor the different aspects of the e-mail chain. This is where Mimecast fits in,” says Grant Hodgkinson, business development director for Mimecast South Africa.
Mimecast's solution requires no investment in hardware, software or other capital expense – it is a single service that integrates with existing IT systems, which can be controlled by the user and can be deployed in a matter of hours. Mimecast is immediately affordable and the cost per user per year is predictable, so budgets for e-mail compliance can be accurately allocated.
