For many businesses, healthcare organizations and K-12 schools and school districts, in-house email solutions can be challenging to manage and maintain. First of all, they require ongoing expenses associated with server-grade hardware, software licenses and an email client.
In addition, in-house email services can strain IT resources, forcing them to handle routine maintenance, spam, viruses, server problems, compliance with federal and state privacy and security regulations, and archiving for legal discovery. And when unplanned email outages occur, organizational productivity and reputation takes a hit.
The solution lies in the cloud. The rise of virtualization technologies for consolidating servers and storage has led to a proliferation of cloud services, such as Custom Cloud Mail, our hosted Exchange email service.
Enterprise-Class Email for Any Organization
Some of the primary reasons that businesses, healthcare organizations and K-12 schools and districts across the region are turning to Custom Cloud Mail include:
