E-Mail: The More Indispensable It Becomes, The Better It Has to Be.

For most businesses today, e-mail is the mission-critical communications tool that enables employees to produce the best possible results. This greater reliance on e-mail has increased the number of messages sent and received; the variety of work performed, and even the speed of business itself. Amid this change, employee expectations have also evolved. Today, employees look for rich, efficient access to e-mail, calendars, file attachments, contacts, and more - no matter where they are or what type of device they are using.

Product Overview

Microsoft Exchange ServerFor IT professionals, delivering a messaging system that addresses these needs, must be balanced against other requirements such as security and cost. Enterprise security requirements have become much more complex as the demand for, and use of, e-mail has increased. Today, IT departments must contend with e-mail security threats that are wide-ranging: continually evolving spam and viruses; noncompliance risks; vulnerability of e-mail to interception and tampering; and the potentially harmful effects of natural and manmade disasters. While security is clearly a priority, IT is ever aware of the need to manage cost. Time, money, and resource constraints are facts of life as IT is consistently required to do more, with less. As a result, IT professionals look for a messaging system that addresses both enterprise and employee needs, while also being cost-effective to deploy and manage. The Sawtel Hosted Microsoft Exchange Service™ leverages Microsoft’s market-proven, Windows-based hosting platform, which reduces the operational costs and increases return on investment, without the attendant cost, infrastructure and support liabilities of local deployment.
