Email and data security company, Mimecast Limited, has acquired Simply Migrate Ltd, a provider of archive data migration technology. With this acquisition, Mimecast expands its migration services with a rich portfolio of connectors, combined with a deeper experience in helping organisations get out of the business of managing expensive, unreliable legacy archives so they can move to a next-generation data protection strategy in the Mimecast cloud.

“Legacy archiving systems are outdated and unable to handle growth and ever-changing demands of a modern enterprise.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,” said Peter Bauer, CEO at Mimecast. “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."

Bauer added that 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.

The acquisition of Simply Migrate will offer customers and prospects a faster, less expensive and more reliable path to the Mimecast cloud.
