MWEB enters the Cloud
MWEB Business has extended its range of Cloud Computing offerings with the launch of a cost-effective, secure, legally compliant e-mail archiving solution.
Designed for South African business of all sizes, the competitively-priced MWEB Cloud-based e-mail archiving platform enables businesses with a valid MWEB Business Hosted Exchange mailbox to store every e-mail sent and received by the organisation in a highly secure, resilient archive.
According to MWEB Business General Manager Andre Joubert, every e-mail is kept for 10 years. In addition, subscribers are charged by the number of users – rather than the volume of data stored – which translates into predictable, and affordable storage, management and retrieval costs.
Joubert points out that e-mail archiving is no longer a ‘nice to have’.
“Compliance, discovery and knowledge management issues require businesses to keep every one of the hundreds of e-mails received and sent every day.
“However, few businesses have the wherewithal to keep storing the sheer volume of e-mails flowing through their servers. The result is that e-mails that are regarded as non-essential are often deleted. That’s when ‘Murphy’s First Law of Cyber Correspondence kicks in: the non-essential e-mail you delete today will be the critical e-mail you need tomorrow,” he adds.
In an attempt to reduce the load on their servers, many businesses resort to compressing e-mails; but this can make it difficult to locate and decipher them at a later date.
MWEB Business’s Cloud-based Archiving service takes care of the great e-mail keep/delete, store/retrieve dilemma. It offers instant access to every mail sent or received in real time, without the need for technical support.
A critical aspect of the MWEB Business archiving solution, particularly from a compliance perspective, is that all stored messages are encrypted and tamper proof, providing evidential quality data for legal or regulatory purposes.
“Lost emails can be a thing of the past, while stolen notebooks and servers that crash do not have to be a crisis. With automatic email archiving, you get peace of mind from as little as R35 (incl VAT) per user, per month,” Joubert concludes.
