Sync & Recover for Exchange and Office 365
Automated Data Recovery and Advanced Email Management Tools
Mimecast recently unveiled Sync & Recover for Exchange and Office 365. What does this mean for organizations? Better protection against malicious or accidental loss of data and emails being moved to Office 365.


With Sync & Recover, organizations can expect unified management of compliance, archiving and data resilience. The new service also provides organization with protection against downtime in the event of a ransomware or other malware attacks, while cloud-based efficiency can quickly restore corrupted or lost email data.

Why Is This Important?
On-prem infrastructure and Exchange continue to serve the messaging needs of millions of organizations worldwide. But as more IT strategies involve cloud technologies, hybrid environments and planning for the future are particularly important.


Email remains a primary vector for hackers with ransomware, impersonation and spear-phishing attacks causing major financial damage and data loss. Due to the importance of email as a communication channel, any outage is a major hit to productivity. And email contains information that must be easily accessible to respond to litigation requests and for employees to search whether they are on network or mobile.
