OK, so hosted Exchange won’t really make you thinner. That’s obviously false. But it is just one of many myths and misconceptions out there about hosted Exchange. Here are a few that we hear most often:
Only big companies use Exchange. Actually, many Exchange users are SMBs that tap Exchange from the cloud to avoid heavy infrastructure investments and ongoing maintenance costs.
We don’t have the budget for Exchange. To stand up a full Exchange deployment onsite is an expensive and challenging proposition. With hosted Exchange, businesses can take that huge CAPEX and turn it into a fixed, monthly fee.
Hosted Exchange isn’t secure. In reality, a hosted Exchange provider’s profits and reputation depend on its ability to secure its customer’s data. Often the security measures taken by a hosted Exchange provider are far more stringent than a standard, onsite deployment.
If you’re looking for a full-featured, scalable email solution, we don’t want you to fall prey to the myths, so we made a fun, short video to address these and other myths around Exchange.
