Microsoft Exchange White Papers from Hosted Exchange Provider
Minecast, a leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, announces that its Unified Email Management (UEM) product has been confirmed as a MSExchange Gold Award winner following a detailed product review. The reviewer, Exchange MVP and creator of ExclusivelyExchange.com J. Peter Bruzzese, recognized the platform’s ease of use, and its deep levels of functionality, flexibility and integration.
“We have had a good run of success with industry awards over the last couple of years, but ultimately the products we build are designed to make the lives of IT Managers, Sys Admins and Exchange Managers easier,” said Neil Murray, Mimecast CTO and co-founder. “So to receive this level of validation from within the Exchange community is particularly gratifying.
“Our customers, many of which have been with us for years, have remained satisfied with Mimecast because the product fundamentally does what it’s supposed to do, both for IT administrators and their end users. That may not sound a particularly lofty ambition, but in the SaaS space, what businesses need more than anything is a supplier they can trust. I think we’ve achieved that, but it’s incumbent on us to keep innovating, keep improving the service we offer and staying ahead of the game.”
Hosting Controller is getting on the Exchange 2010 action. Their new release is part of an HC control panel 8.12 update that supports Exchange 2010 SP1 Hosting Switch and IPv6 on Windows & Linux servers. .This new solution comes with a comprehensive self-serve portal for end customers.
“HC8.12 release reflects Hosting Controller’s commitment to providing its customers with the tools they need to support complex hosting operations,” says Babar Zaman, Vice President of Business Development at Hosting Controller Inc. “Since Exchange 2010 SP1 in hosting mode doesn’t allow the usage of the Exchange Management Console (EMC), therefore HC control panel becomes the natural choice of hosted service providers to provision organizations and mailboxes in Exchange 2010 using a special “/hosting” switch in “Hosting Mode”.
DATAFORT has launched their Hi-5 availability service for Microsoft Exchange. It provides disaster recovery for Exchange. This is a fixed cost high availability Exchange solution designed specifically to address the concerns associated with using MS Exchange. The Exchange server backup service provides email, mailbox or full server recovery from an onsite appliance and disaster recovery from DATAFORT’s Cloud so that a company is completely protected against the loss of income and reputation that can originate from failure of an email server.
Hi-5 for MS Exchange is offered at a fixed-price, regardless of data quantity and can recover even a half terabyte Exchange Server typically within 15 minutes of a reported failure. This allows companies to safeguard the ability to communicate on email and the information stored in their mailboxes. This can save a lot of time and money.
DATAFORT Chief Executive Marcie Terman comments, “Cloud Recovery Services for Exchange are springing up every day, just like offsite data backup companies did a few years ago. While these automated services are a vast improvement over tape recovery of Exchange, they only protect the Exchange User from certain types of failures, offer limited functionality when operating in emergency mode and are restricted in how the user can return to the production environment.”
GSX Solutions, a competitor in proactive, consolidated monitoring, reporting and messaging of enterprise collaboration environments, including Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange, and BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), has announced the release of its new GSX 360 suite. GSX 360 provides streamlined delegation of standard service requests for IBM Lotus and BlackBerry Enterprise Server via template-driven request processing.
“The vast majority of administrative tasks for collaboration environments follow repetitive routines. By streamlining the process with templates and wizards, we found that GSX 360 can help drastically reduce the number of errors and reduce administrative costs,” said Antoine Leboyer, CEO of GSX. “Together with our new GSX Monitor & Analyzer we can offer comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for IBM Lotus and BlackBerry enterprise mobility environments.”

Litéra, a manufacturer of content lifecycle management software, has released Metadact, server-based software that removes metadata from e-mail messages and attachments sent from Outlook and other mail clients, mobile devices, webmail, and smartphones. Metadact aims to protect the confidentiality and privacy of information that may be compromised in the context of an outgoing e-mail message. Think of it as your own little slice of privacy-infused Idaho.
According to Deepak Massand, Litéra’s CEO “an increasingly mobile workforce relying on e-mail carries the risk of unintentionally disclosing sensitive information through metadata.” Metadact , he says, is designed to remove the risk of metadata transferred via e-mail through a server-based approach that interrogates outgoing e-mail and attachments to identify sensitive and potentially harmful metadata and strip the metadata clean to deliver the message to recipients.
So what are we waiting for? We got some metadata to scrub.
