Cloud email is everywhere these days, but what is it? Well in short it is email that can be accessed from anywhere and can be stored on the internet “in the cloud”. Generally, if you have used email, then you have used cloud email. The great thing about newer email systems is that they allow you to synchronise between devices, so you can have multiple devices or computers attached to a single email account and all the mail, replies can be seen on all devices and when you have read an email it shows as read automatically on all the other devices. One of the most popular technologies for businesses today is Microsoft Exchange. Microsoft Exchange tends to encrypt the connection between servers automatically when possible. Normally email servers do not encrypt the connection. You can still upgrade the encryption to give you end-to-end encryption which means that only the person you are sending the email to can open it and that is easy to implement in our solution. Our Cloud email solution is based on Exchange 2013, and we are constantly upgrading and updating it. Security between servers by default and you can upgrade to get end-to-end encryption too.
