Protecting you company email is not often the most talked about topic in the day to day running of a business. But it is a topic that should increasingly be higher on businesses priority list.

With increasing sophistication of attacks being used and a rise in ransomware, where people steal your information and then ‘ransom’ you for it’s return, securing your business data is a must for a company of any size. Many antivirus programmes now struggle to cope with the sophistication of these attacks, with many Companies only limiting their data losses through proactively trying to reduce their risk of attack.

In our Quick Tips video series we sum up some tips, or benefits of solutions available to businesses.

In this episode, we talk about the benefits of using Microsoft Exchange to better protect your business data.

We’ve also included a full transcript of the video below.

Email security isn’t exactly the most popular topic in light conversation, but with data loss costing UK businesses £10.5 billion a year, it’s important to have the right security and archiving features in place.

Here are 5 benefits of using Microsoft Exchange, for better protecting your business data.

Protect Your Sensitive Data

Protect your sensitive data and inform users of internal compliance policies with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities. Keep your organisation safe from users mistakenly sending sensitive information to unauthorised people.

The new Exchange DLP features identify, monitor, and protect sensitive data through deep content analysis.

Keep Your Data In One Place

Keep all of your important data in one place with Exchange archiving, large mailboxes, and retention policies.

All employees have an in-place archive and large mailbox to allow them the flexibility to retain email in their primary mailbox, or to archive items.

Active Email Protection

Eliminate email threats before they reach your network. Exchange actively protects your communications with built-in defences against email threats.

Multi-layered anti-spam filtering comes with continuous updates to help guard against increasingly sophisticated spam and phishing threats, while multiple anti-malware engines work to protect your email data from viruses.

Bring Your Contacts Into One Place

Our professional networks span many different places. With Exchange, you have the ability to enable employees to bring their contacts in from other networks so that they have all of their information in one place.

Exchange will even find the same person across networks and consolidate their information into one contact card, avoiding duplication and multiple contact cards with different information.

Cloud – On Your Terms

Move to the cloud on your terms with flexible options including Exchange hybrid deployment.

Exchange provides you tools to move to the cloud on your terms – whether that’s onboarding to the cloud overnight or managing a hybrid deployment with mailboxes on-premises and online to meet your business needs.
