Migrating from Postini

It’s time to make the move to Mimecast.

With Google’s announcement that its Postini email security service has been discontinued, organizations are actively seeking out the best Postini replacement solution for their needs. Many do not want to rely on Google Apps for their email security, nor do they want to take a step back to an on-premises security offering. Making the right cloud security choice first time is important – but how do you evaluate the Postini alternatives?

Key evaluation criteria include - quality of security service and associated SLA, customer support offering and reputation, ease of implementation and ongoing management, features and experience for end users and a track record of delivering a painless transition.
