Mimecast has expanded its data migration services with the acquisition of Simply Migrate.

The cost and complexity of legacy data migration is one of the leading obstacles preventing enterprises from moving to modern cloud-based archiving solutions. The acquisition of Simply Migrate will offer customers a faster, less expensive and more reliable path to the Mimecast cloud.

Peter Bauer, chief executive officer at Mimecast, said that legacy archiving systems are outdated and unable to handle growth and ever-changing demands of a modern enterprise.

“Many organisations struggle with the ballooning email storage volumes alongside other unstructured data types, coupled with the cost and management burdens of storing it on-premises. With the acquisition of Simply Migrate, customers can reap the benefits of the Mimecast Cloud Archive, which was recently named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving for the fourth year in a row.

“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,” Bauer said.
