Mimecast, a supplier of cloud-based e-mail archiving, security and continuity for Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange, Hosted Exchange and Office 365, has completely switched up its cloud archiving capabilities, allowing end-users to more easily access their personal archive from their chosen e-mail client or mobile device.
The company has also introduced file archiving and now provides users with the ability to search their archived documents from within Outlook, Mimecast Personal Portal (Web) or an iPad.
In fact, the company’s new iPad app coined Mimefiles displays all of a user’s documents stored in e-mail, as well as Box (News - Alert), Dropbox, SharePoint, network shares and home drives (My Documents).
Mimecast has also added tight integration between SharePoint and e-mail, with users able to 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,” said Grant Hodgkinson, product director, Unified E-mail Management, at 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.”
Additionally, the Mimecast archive can now store more than just e-mail, but perhaps more importantly the company is 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.
Back in September, the Office 365 provider had revealed that it now works with 70 of the top 100 legal firms in the U.K. and around 130 of the top 200.Recent additions to Mimecast’s portfolio of legal customers include SJ Berwin, Foot Anstey, Kingsley Napley, Weightmans and Russell Cooke.
