Mime­cast rolls out Sync & Re­cover for Ex­change and Of­fice 365 New ser­vice stream­lines re­cov­ery of lost or cor­rupted email data

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Mime­cast Lim­ited, a lead­ing email and data se­cu­rity com­pany, yes­ter­day in­tro­duced Sync & Re­cover for Ex­change and Of­fice 365. As more or­ga­ni­za­tions move email and its data to Of­fice 365, they need to bet­ter pro­tect this data against ma­li­cious or ac­ci­den­tal loss. Sync & Re­cover of­fers uni­fied man­age­ment of com­pli­ance, ar­chiv­ing and data re­silience. The new ser­vice also pro­vides or­ga­ni­za­tions 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.

Or­ga­ni­za­tions have long de­ployed backup and re­cov­ery sys­tems in con­junc­tion with Ex­change on-premises mail servers, how­ever with thou­sands of or­ga­ni­za­tions mov­ing to Of­fice 365 they are left with­out an in­te­grated backup of email data. Sync & Re­cover en­hances the data pro­tec­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties of Mi­crosoft Ex­change On­line and Of­fice 365 by lev­er­ag­ing Mime­cast ar­chive data to pro­vide in­tu­itive point-and-click re­cov­ery of email data in the event of ac­ci­den­tal loss, ma­li­cious at­tacks or tech­ni­cal fail­ure.

Of­fered as an add-on op­tion for ar­chiv­ing cus­tomers, Sync & Re­cover of­fers sim­pli­fied ad­min­is­tra­tion and stream­lined re­cov­ery tak­ing out the need for or­ga­ni­za­tions to ac­quire ad­di­tional soft­ware or hard­ware. Or­ga­ni­za­tions can man­age com­pli­ance ar­chiv­ing and data re­siliency from a sin­gle Ad­min­is­tra­tion Con­sole, with­out the need for ded­i­cated backup and re­cov­ery solutions. Ad­di­tion­ally, IT ad­mins can con­fig­ure re­cov­ery and search eas­ily, to re­cover in­di­vid­ual items, en­tire mail­boxes or fold­ers. Sync & Re­cover, in con­junc­tion with Tar­geted Threat Pro­tec­tion (TTP) and Mime­cast Con­ti­nu­ity ser­vices, al­lows or­ga­ni­za­tions to com­bat ransomware and other email-borne mal­ware at­tacks on Ex­change Server data. This lay­ered ransomware strat­egy com­bines preven­tion of email-borne cy­ber ex­ploits, sim­pli­fied re­cov­ery of email data in case of breach, and email ser­vice con­ti­nu­ity, all man­aged from a sin­gle in­tu­itive ad­min­is­tra­tive con­sole.

The new Mime­cast fea­ture also helps sim­plify mi­gra­tion from lo­cal Ex­change servers and Of­fice 365, as well as the man­age­ment of com­plex, global mes­sag­ing en­vi­ron­ments and hy­brid cloud en­vi­ron­ments.

“With adop­tion of Mi­crosoft Of­fice 365 steadily ris­ing, or­ga­ni­za­tions have more to worry about than just the im­pact in the event of an out­age. While an out­age could take an or­ga­ni­za­tion off­line for a cou­ple of hours, ma­li­cious or ac­ci­den­tal data loss could have even big­ger con­se­quences - some that com­pa­nies can’t re­cover from,” said An­drew Smith, se­nior re­search an­a­lyst at IDC. “Or­ga­ni­za­tions must en­sure their data gov­er­nance and man­age­ment strat­egy in­cludes a com­bi­na­tion of ar­chiv­ing, backup, and data pro­tec­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties, so they have the ap­pro­pri­ate tools in any re­cov­ery sit­u­a­tion - whether that be the af­ter­math of a ransomware at­tack or if an em­ployee ac­ci­dently deletes an email file.”

“To strengthen their cy­ber re­silience strat­egy, or­ga­ni­za­tions need to en­sure they have a backup-and-re­cov­ery ca­pa­bil­ity to help pro­tect email data and main­tain busi­ness con­ti­nu­ity, in case of an in­ci­dent re­sult­ing in data loss,” said Glenn Brown, se­nior prod­uct man­ager at Mime­cast. “Sync & Re­cover for Ex­change and Of­fice 365 of­fers or­ga­ni­za­tions a sim­ple, stream­lined way to re­cover deleted or cor­rupted email, cal­en­dar, and con­tact in­for­ma­tion by lev­er­ag­ing ar­chive data.”

Sync & Re­cover for Ex­change and Of­fice 365 will be gen­er­ally avail­able in Au­gust 2017.
