When you add up the full price tag for your email environment, from server to software to risk management and staff costs, it becomes clear why running everything in-house can mean you spend far more of your budget on maintenance than innovation.

Email is often taken for granted, with senior executives simply seeing email flow to-and-from the organisation without any understanding of the complexity involved. Ensuring email is always free from spam or malware and that it is not a vector for social engineering attacks or leakage of confidential data is as critical as making a permanent record for compliance or litigation protection.

Understanding how much your current email system costs, and how that all adds up, is the key to making changes, and to providing a better service for your users. It is only when you understand the risks your organisation faces and the costs of your mitigation products that you can perform a true cost-benefit analysis. And it’s not just the initial capital costs that are an issue; it’s also the ongoing operational expenses.

This white paper, provided by Mimecast, offers insight into calculating the true cost of email, and solutions designed to reduce ongoing capital and operational expenses while improving the performance and storage you need for email archives, security, and management.
