Mimecast acquires Simply Migrate to expand data migration services
Mimecast, an email and data security company, has acquired Simply Migrate Ltd., a provider of archive data migration technology. With this acquisition, Mimecast is expanding its migration services with a portfolio of connectors.
According to Mimecast, the cost and complexity of legacy data migration is one of the leading obstacles preventing enterprises from moving to modern cloud-based archiving solutions such as Mimecast. The acquisition of Simply Migrate, it says, will offer customers and prospects a faster, less expensive, and more reliable path to the Mimecast cloud, so they can reduce costs, safeguard their intellectual property, preserve institutional memory, accelerate e-discovery and achieve compliance.
“Legacy archiving systems are outdated and unable to handle growth and ever-changing demands of a modern enterprise. Many organizations struggle with the ballooning email storage volumes alongside other unstructured data types, coupled with the cost and management burdens of storing it on-premises,” said Peter Bauer, CEO at Mimecast. “The technology Simply Migrate offers is engineered to provide end-to-end migration into the Mimecast Cloud Archive, helping to cut costs and operational complexity while achieving a superior result with more flexible access to data, case management, supervision and more,” he added.
