The Business Need for Cloud-Based Email
Email is possibly the most important business application of all and as a result it is essential that it remains always available and its content secure, whether at rest or in transit. A set of disparate applications often evolves to deliver this protection, but this complexity brings with it inherent risks of poor reliability, inconsistent policy enforcement and compromised data security.
Adopting cloud-based services can help you to achieve unified security for your business IT - reducing risk, cost and complexity.
A key part of any IT security strategy is securing email - at rest, in use and in motion; and doing that in the cloud has significant advantages.
By removing the need to deploy, integrate and manage multiple third party systems, moving to the cloud can provide a number of unique benefits, offering all the required capability in a single cloud solution.

It provides total end-to-end control of email, enabling organisations to mitigate risk, maximise flexibility and reduce both cost and complexity.
