Microsoft Exchange is a powerful tool but with this comes complexity. adept4?s team of exchange specialists operate as an extension to your IT team; managing the messaging and collaboration infrastructure so you don?t have to.
Why a hosted service?
There are a number of benefits to a hosted service. The primary one being system availability. We have deployed an advanced Exchange Server architecture with clustered, redundant servers configured in automatic fail-over mode. All monitored by our 24/7 service delivery team, maximising system availability.
Another major benefit is cost control and cost reduction. The hosted service transforms the need to purchase and maintain software and hardware into a pay-as-you-go service. For a low fixed monthly fee adept4 will guarantee system access, provide true 24/7, 365 days a year service delivery support and full email archiving.
Is archiving included?
Archiving is included as standard within all of our email service plans.
Why is email archiving so important?
Whilst compliance regulations vary by sector, compliance is based on three main concepts. 1. Data permanence i.e. data will be retained in its original state without being altered or deleted 2. Data security i.e. information will be kept secure and access restricted. 3. Audit-ability i.e. to be able to access the information in a timely manner when required, and within the data security measures.
The growth in email size, as well as email usage puts strain on the underlying architecture, impacting organisational efficiency plus the reliability and speed of the email application. Email archiving is the optimal way to resolve these issues. Not only does it provide a central repository that users can search on demand, the files are also stored in a compressed format ? reducing your data backup costs. Plus, with the archiving taking effect upon email receipt this even covers items deleted immediately upon receipt.
