Why Cloud Email is Best for your Business

August 15, 2014 – 7:56 pm

If you are wondering about the pros and cons of cloud-based email vs in-house email, it’s advantageous to research your options. You don’t want to pay more money than you have to, you don’t want to have to employ more IT people than necessary, and you don’t want to continually invest in technology that’s expensive and a hassle if there’s a better solution out there. Many companies believe that opting with hosted email makes more sense. You want a solution for your company that will provide yourself and your team with email that does what you need it to, you want a solution that won’t be labor-intense to manage, and you want something that’s affordable, too.

Cloud-based email could be an ideal option for your business for a number of reasons:

  • *  Cloud-based email doesn’t require that you house your data. The data lives in the cloud and you can easily and securely access it without having to house servers to hold it and without having to manage those servers, either.
  • *  Cloud-based email comes with a 24/7/365 support team that can manage things when things go wrong. This means you won’t need to employ an email administrator.
  • *  There are a variety of cloud-based email options out there. You can evaluate some of those options and choose the one that best suits the needs of your organization.
  • *  You can sign up for a subscription-based service that works on a pay as you go model. This can mean that if your needs change and you want a new option for email, you can easily switch without massive deployment planning in advance.
  • *  GetSync’d Kerio Connect Hosted Email

Some of the big benefits of choosing cloud based Kerio Connect from GetSync’d include:

  • *  Try it for free for 30 days to see if it’s right for you.

Important Email Security Issues Small Businesses Should Consider

More businesses than ever are aware that they need to be extremely careful about their email. There are a number of things to consider in terms of business email security, such as protection from viruses and other problems, content monitoring, encryption, archiving, privacy, and other issues. Not only might some of these areas be best practices to consider, in some cases there may be legal requirements, depending on what sort of industry you are in.

In addition to worrying about these things you’ll also need to consider storage and technical issues like support and maintenance. Because email can be complicated to manage and because it’s so mission critical for businesses for dealing with team members, customers, vendors, and so forth, more companies than ever now opt for a cloud-based hosted email solution that encompasses security features, archiving, and other elements and in a way that doesn’t require a lot of technical involvement. This type of solution, provided you choose the right one, offers maximum features and benefits with minimal administration and no extensive hardware or IT management details to worry about.

Things to Consider When Investigating Hosted Email Solutions

When searching for a good hosted email solution, consider areas like:

  1. email protection (viruses, malware, spam, quarantine abilities),
  2. email encryption (so that you can be compliant and /or so that you know every email is sent securely),
  3. email privacy (does the email provider serve advertisements to you based on content and /or do they collect any of your data?),
  4. email archiving (archiving may be required for good business practice reasons and could be required legally),
  5. reporting on email activities (so you know what’s happening on a regular basis with emails entering and exiting your organization,
  6. and other issues are important, too, such as ease of management and the associated email subscription costs.

The right email solution will make your business communication flow much more smoothly!
