A cloud-hosted Exchange service providing email, contacts, calendars, public folders and spam and virus filtering.
With redundant servers it’s more reliable than an on-premise mail server – and with fewer overheads.
All the important bits you want from an Exchange email service, hosted in CommArc’s NZ-based data centres
It’s more reliable and cost-efficient option than an on-premise server
- Always available. We keep three copies of your mailbox in sync on different mailbox servers in Auckland and Christchurch. If one server fails or needs maintenance, the others step in seamlessly. Your services and email are always available.
- Save money, free up office space and lose the hassle of looking after a mail server. You no longer need a mail server in your offices. That means you don’t need to worry about its maintenance and you save money on power and other overheads.
- Data still kept right here in New Zealand. There are no issues of data sovereignty.
- Data backed up to disk and tape. We keep monthly tapes offsite indefinitely. There’s no risk of accidental deletion.
Plus: the power of CloudShield spam and virus filtering and malicious link-checking
All your incoming emails pass through the cloud-based MailMarshal software. This identifies and filters out anything it identifies as spam, viruses or spoofed emails (emails engineered to look as if they’re from a legitimate sender, but are really a scam). Legitimate emails pass straight through to your CloudMail inbox.
Plus: CloudShield automatically checks every link in your emails and stops you from reaching unsafe websites. Links in emails sent to you are re-written to redirect to a secure server. When you click on the link you see an interim web page as CloudShield checks the original link for malicious content. If the link is safe you’re passed through to the website. If it contains known malicious content, it’s blocked. The whole thing takes an average of less than a second.
