Law firm implements online e-mail archiving

Law firm Taylor Wessing has replaced its e-mail archival server with a web-based service from Mimecast.

Law firm Taylor Wessing has replaced its e-mail archival server with a web-based service from Mimecast.

Tim Hyman, head of IT operations at Taylor Wessing, said the firm had outgrown its archival server within two years of purchase.

"The Mimecast service allows us to offload all the hassle of capacity planning for the next ten years without giving up any control as we can search, retrieve and manage all e-mails from our desktop," he said.

The switch to the archival service comes 18 months after the law firm implemented Mimecast's software-as-a-service e-mail management service for 1,200 users in offices in the UK, France, Germany and Belgium.

Hyman said the firm had chosen the e-mail service because it combined e-mail security with business continuity by enabling a continuous service that was unaffected by power failures or server downtime.

He said by opting for the archival service, the firm had been able to consolidate its servers and suppliers for e-mail storage, security and continuity into one.
