Productivity & Mobility

Mimecast's user productivity tools are a rich set of technologies that enable employees to work smarter and respond more quickly whether they are in the office or on the road.

Together, they provide end users with easy access to their Mimecast email archives and support continuous access to email when primary email systems are unavailable. What’s more, they give users the freedom to select specific email security and email branding settings when composing email, rather than requesting the creation of an ad-hoc security policy.

On top of that, Mimecast Mobile Access ensures that users can do all this from a mobile handset too – using native apps that deliver a seamless user experience.

Mimecast supports the following user productivity platforms:

For the desktop: Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010

For the mobile user: Windows Phone, BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, Android

Efficiency and control for IT departments

While Mimecast empowers users, it also allows the IT department to retain full, centralized policy control – while lessening the burden of everyday support and administration:

  • Granular permission controls allow system administrators to activate functions for individual employees or subsets of users as required
  • IT teams retain control over all default settings, allowing them to continue to set and manage security policies
  • Client side installations can be effected through existing software management systems, streamlining the roll-out process for both the IT department and end users
  • Functions such as user self-service for quarantine management and the recovery of lost or deleted items reduce the time IT departments spend on basic system administration tasks - freeing up resources for more strategic projects and reducing user frustration.
