SYDNEY & MELBOURNE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mimecast, the leading global provider of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security, announced today a global partnership with Nuix, the leader in intelligent email archive migration tools. This technology integration means Mimecast can now migrate quickly large volumes of user data from an enterprise’s legacy archive to Mimecast’s cloud platform.
A faster archive migration speeds up the decommissioning of end-of-life archiving solutions, alleviates ongoing hardware and software costs, and helps customers overcome in-house scalability and performance challenges.
The Mimecast and Nuix partnership optimises the volume of data available, and the speed at which it can be produced for critical eDiscovery and end-user productivity and mobile access requirements. Mimecast can now bypass legacy archive APIs to target data directly, allowing for multiple terabytes of data per month to be ingested to Mimecast storage. A data extraction task that once took months or years can now be completed in days or weeks.
“The vast majority of new archive implementations today are in the cloud but many organisations still use migration technology that was designed years ago to move data from one on-premises system to another,” said Rocco Seyboth, global head of Nuix’s Intelligent Migration business. “Enterprises are choosing Mimecast because of their next-generation approach to email storage management, eDiscovery and compliance. We are excited to partner with Mimecast so their customers can benefit from Nuix’s migration technology, designed specifically for the cloud.”
“Since the introduction of new Australian privacy legislation earlier this year, many Australian companies have begun looking for local data management solutions,” said Nick Lennon, Australia Country Manager at Mimecast. “Mimecast is pleased to have recently become an Australian provider of a full suite of data management services, including email filtering, antivirus, archiving, continuity, file archiving, governance, messaging security and more – all hosted in the cloud.
“Companies doing business in Australia need to preserve the ‘corporate memory’ of their archived data – and the potential insights which it holds – without burdening their systems performance. It’s only natural that we partner with Nuix, the leader in rapid archive migration. Doing so ensures that our customers can gain the performance, scalability and multi-device accessibility of the Mimecast platform, while minimising the risks of corporate amnesia through data loss or downtime.”
