Cloud-based email archiving

Emails get lost. Whether someone accidentally deletes them or maliciously empties their inbox before leaving the company, your customers are always at risk of losing important messages. They could lose valuable intellectual property or, even worse, access to important email for e-discovery. Primary email services like Microsoft 365 and Gmail have limited retention periods, so you may need an email backup service to ensure long-term email storage. As an MSP, your customers expect you to ensure their data is secure and available.

N-able Mail Assure allows you to provide your customers with peace of mind through long-term cloud email archiving. This service allows you to keep a backup of emails beyond your main service’s email retention period to reduce local storage costs and maintain business records.

 

Microsoft 365 email archiving

Businesses have become increasingly reliant on a small number of major suppliers to manage their IT cloud infrastructure for day-to-day operations. The security of these vendors’ systems, including Microsoft 365, tends to be assumed. As these major vendors become bigger targets for cybercriminals, backups become more and more essential.

N-able Mail Assure can assist by providing encrypted cloud email archiving for Microsoft 365 customers. Ensure that your Microsoft 365 customers’ data stays safe and secure with an easily integrated archiving solution like Mail Assure. Email archiving for Microsoft 365 not only protects against data loss, it also helps address compliance requirements by industry-related regulatory bodies, like FRCP, SOX, and HIPAA.

Cross platform email archive

The solution is compatible with nearly any email service and includes import and export archive data capabilities to simplify cross platform email archiving and migration from other solutions or existing infrastructure.

Mail Assure’s email archiving service encrypts, compresses, and stores all incoming and outgoing messages in Mail Assure’s cloud-based vault, helping ensure messages are available for backup and compliance purposes. Robust encryption in transit (using TLS encryption) and at rest (using AES encryption) helps keep data secure to put your customers security fears to rest. The archive is searchable, so users can easily find and retrieve emails at any time, including the option to send email from the archive to an inbox with advanced redelivery functionalities. Additionally, journaling support helps users easily pull emails from existing Microsoft 365 environments.

Compressed storage of inbound and outbound emails, including the ability to enable or disable archiving per mailbox helps MSPs manage storage requirements and reduces local infrastructure storage costs to ultimately boost IT system performance.

Email archiving for MSPs

Over the past several years MSPs have increasingly become responsible for maintaining security and data backups even when those duties may fall outside their service contracts. Because of this shifting expectation, maintaining backups has become as much a need for the MSP as it is for the customer.

N-able Mail Assure makes email archiving simple with an unlimited retention period and simple integration with Microsoft 365. Emails are transferred and stored with robust encryption, and the data is compressed to keep costs low. Multiple customization options are offered for customer compliance including worldwide storage locations, journaling support, and the ability to enable or disable archiving per mailbox. Data can also be easily updated and accessed with indexed search, web-based viewing, and the ability to transfer data as needed.
