Mimecast, a company that provides email archiving, hosting and security for customers using Microsoft (News - Alert) products, recently revealed that it has successfully upgraded its cloud archiving capabilities.
The revamped functions will now allow end-users to access their personal archives from their chosen e-mail client or mobile device. With the help of Mimecast’s newly introduced file archiving, users will also be able to search their archived documents from within Outlook, Mimecast Personal Portal or iPad.
The email hosting provider has also added tight integration between SharePoint and e-mail. This will help users to easily and quickly search their e-mail archive from within SharePoint, or their SharePoint documents from Outlook.
"The archive is now so much more than just a dusty data store," commented Grant Hodgkinson, product director, Unified Email Management, Mimecast, in a statement. "We see it as a highly available, highly secure, but most of all incredibly useful source of information for IT professionals and their end users. And not just for occasional eDiscovery cases but for day to day interactions”
He further added, “The Mimecast archive can now store more than just email, but perhaps more importantly we're providing users with the tools to be able to find what they need, quickly, in ways that suit their personal preferences, whether they are iPad users or Outlook junkies. In short, archiving is not just about what goes in; it's how useful it is when it comes out."
In related news, TMCnet reported that Mimecast will be spearheading three sessions and a keynote at the Fall Microsoft DevConnections 2012, being held currently in Las Vegas.
