Mailprotector, a technology leader in fully managed email security services, today unveiled quota-free hosted Exchange services. The new service goes beyond alternative hosted Exchange offerings by eliminating downtime resulting from restrictive mailbox limits that are exceeded quickly, preventing email access. Mailprotector Exchange hosting also slashes the cost of mobile email synchronization and gives users the option of integrating its robust email hosting solution with the company’s heralded email security suite, providing highly available email services.
"Email quota management has been a struggle for both users and organizations managing email systems. Quotas reduce productivity by requiring users to manage their mailboxes instead of focusing on more strategic business activities," said Michael Osterman, founding analyst for Osterman Research. "With 60 percent of organizations having to impose a size quota on email this is a widespread issue and vendors like Mailprotector that cost-effectively overcome this challenge will address a painful business concern.”
Mailprotector features fully hosted MS Exchange 2007 mailboxes with unlimited storage capacity protected by Mailprotector's industry leading email security service that includes extremely accurate spam, virus and phishing removal. Mailprotector’s production hardened infrastructure provides unparalleled redundancy and availability as messaging data is processed and stored on independent systems with real-time mirroring for the ultimate in information availability. With the company’s hosted Exchange service, users get enterprise-quality functionality, reliability and support at prices small and medium size organizations can afford.
Mailprotector hosted Exchange services include:
• Pricing as low as $12.95 per user;
• Unlimited mailbox storage;
• Email security;
• Inbound/outbound filtering;
• Business continuity;
• Daily spam quarantine reports;
• Unlimited contacts and aliases;
• Centralized calendars and contacts;
• Mobile support for iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Mobile;
• Blackberry service fees starting at $9.95 for setup and $4.95 per month for services.
Also announced today is the Mailprotector Premium Security Suite which includes advanced spam and virus filtering to protect not only incoming messages but now outgoing messages as well. A new user adjustable spam filter provides the ability to fine tune settings based on a customer’s own specifications which mitigates false positive issues surrounding the loss of legitimate email as a result of filtering. Additionally, configurable content management capabilities now allow users to easily create content filtering rules for individual users or entire domains to better enforce corporate email policies.
“Prior to Mailprotector, our challenge was the growing amount of messaging throughout the company, causing regular email quota overages and shutting down user access to their accounts,” said Bill Marchbanks, President at Indcom Corporation. “Mailprotector’s limitless Exchange hosting service has simplified the email management process for us and dramatically increased uptime, freeing our resources to perform more productive tasks.”
“SMBs choosing the integrated Mailprotector email hosting and security service can definitely counter the cost and complexity of building a comprehensive email solution that includes spam filtering, virus scanning, robust and scalable storage and infrastructure to reduce risk and improve availability,” said David Setzer, CEO of Mailprotector. “Mailprotector customers are finding our simple yet powerful offering to be compelling in maintaining business continuity without draining financial or human resources.”
