The average corporate employee will send and receive no less than a hundred email messages per day and this volume of emails sent and received only grows  with time. This continuously growing number could mean a large impact on your organisation’s regulatory compliance, and security. Organizations not only need a system to store and manage these messages, which may contain sensitive and confidential data, but also a system that provides an efficient way to monitor and retrieve messages that can pose serious legal and reputational threats to organisations.

Because of the intensity and importance of managing vital emails, more companies and businesses are looking into solutions which not only make management easier – but also ensure that no messages are lost, hacked or misused.

A good alternative many organisations are looking into is the use of cloud-based email. Here are 3 good reasons why.

Worry-free cloud-based archiving compared to in-house archiving.

You will no longer need to think about hardware compatibility issues, maintenance and regular upgrades plus no need to hire an in-house IT personnel. You can save time because you can quickly search for past emails and files – easy search and retrieve previous emails and documents in a matter of seconds. Plus, it is conveniently accessible.You can access your archive using any device, anywhere and anytime as long as internet connection is available.

Iron-clad security

Data security for cloud based solutions is far greater than local solutions.Email is surely intact and safe.No one can change or tamper any email inside the cloud for future audits or litigation.No more risks of losing email, or hacking or malicious pilferage for less-than-lawful purposes.

Unlimited backup

Unlike the in-house email archiving, the cloud-based email archive solution does not limit space. It grows as the volume of your emails grows. One of the best reasons why Cloud is growing in popularity is because of its storage capacity. No more apprehensions about reaching your email storage limits (think of “full disks”) – cloud adjusts to your need. This is especially useful since emails usually have large file attachments which take up a lot of your storage.
