What is Hosted Exchange?
Posted by Alba on February 18th, 2021
Chances are you’ve probably heard of hosted exchange email, but do you know exactly what it is and whether it’s the right choice for your business?
Also referred to as Exchange Online, hosted exchange is a cloud-based telecommunications solution that supplies a server for users to store their Microsoft email box. Businesses can rent the server space from Microsoft Exchange, allowing them to centralise their emails into one database on the cloud. It is employed and configured through a service provider’s platform, and can be accessed via a secure network, or VPN.
Hosted exchange is a cloud-based solution, or SaaS (Software as a service) which means it can be accessed over the Internet via any connected device. It gives businesses the scope to access their emails, calendar, address book and documents remotely, alongside ensuring the data is kept secure.
The advantages of hosted exchange
Usually, hosted exchange is best suited to smaller businesses who lack the capacity to host and manage their own email server, due to reduced resource or limited workforce. However, it can be argued that hosted exchange has many advantages for any modern business.
You will also benefit from having access to more advanced features in your mailbox. From automatics responses to mailbox rules, email forwarding and access to archived emails, hosted exchange makes it easier to organise and streamline your working life.
Hosted exchange is far more secure than using a free email service.
With a vast array of benefits and added features that could help your business to improve, think about moving to a hosted exchange today. Contact your local IT support company for help.
