The Single Vendor Relationship: 8 Reasons to Consider

Posted by Debbie Howlett

Aug 7, 2014 5:31:18 PM

No question the digital revolution has changed the world, but so has the bundle. I’m a bundler which means I deal with a single vendor for high speed internet, mobile phone service, HD TV, and home phone service (yeah, yeah, I know). I probably should have coldly assessed whether or not I really needed a home phone, or even a television for that matter, but I didn’t.

Thinking of moving your Data to the cloud? Hybrid cloud may be the answer

Posted by Richard Brunette

Jul 28, 2014 10:30:00 AM

It’s the big debate that by 2014 every email administrator has at least pondered and upon which many have already acted: the cloud. It should almost be capitalized at this point shouldn’t it? The Cloud, it’s ominous. 

Enter the next debate. Anyone who has looked at the cloud has seen the countless articles: “How Safe Is Your Data in the Cloud?” “Secure Your Data in the Cloud.” “Where exactly is the Cloud Storing Your Data?”

How to create safe and easily remembered passwords, unique for every site

Posted by Richard Brunette

Jul 2, 2014 10:59:00 PM

We’re told more and more every day that password security is essential.   We’re constantly being asked to create new passwords. We’re also being told not to write our passwords down anywhere or worse, just use the same password for every instance, lest one password give a thief access to your entire kingdom. 

There’s a whole laundry list of don’ts which I won’t bother rehashing, but not much advice as to dos. The reality is that this just isn’t feasible. IT Help desks everywhere moan about password reset cases that take up most of their time.

Find out first: Office365 down

Posted by Frederic Bourget

Jun 26, 2014 11:36:00 AM

Over the last few days, Microsoft has suffered major outages to O365 cloud services. This has sent partners and email admins scrambling for information. How can an organization tell when its most critical services are down? Does it have to wait for the help desk calls to come in?

Communication services are critical to the functioning of an organization. As we like to say around here, an organization is a set of people and their conversations. O365 and Lync services are part of what brings an organization 21st century efficiency.

Last night the Daily Show with Jon Stewart ran a story about an email recovery scandal, what we in the industry call “ediscovery”. If you haven’t seen the segment, you can view it here: http://on.cc.com/1wvZLfi.

The Hidden Costs of Email

Posted by Michael Osterman

Jun 19, 2014 10:02:00 AM

Osterman Research and Netmail conducted a large survey of organizations to determine the email system they have in place; the solutions they are using for anti-virus, anti-spam, data loss prevention, encryption, archiving and eDiscovery; and how much they are paying for their email infrastructure.

The median number of active mailboxes in use at the organizations surveyed was 4,650. To gain further insight into organizations’ email practices, we segmented the 365 completed surveys into small organizations (up to 500 active mailboxes), mid-sized organizations (501 to 5,000 mailboxes) and large organizations (5,001+ mailboxes).

The Magic of Being a Shareholder

Posted by Stephanie Greenshields

Jun 13, 2014 4:01:00 PM

After lots of hard work, and a very successful financial year, Netmail shareholders received their profit sharing bonuses before Christmas last year. As a shareholder, I had received profit sharing bonuses in past profitable years, and with it I always chose to purchase something special for myself that normally I might not. It always makes for a very interesting conversation when someone spots my new purchase and asks me about it.

Is Mail Drop for Business?

Posted by Frederic Bourget

Jun 5, 2014 4:10:00 PM

Tuesday, Apple introduced Mail Drop. A new feature of their mail client that allows end users to send a large file transparently even if their mail server limits the size of attachments. They use their iDrive (cloud storage) to transmit the file and the end user sees a link to the file when not using Mac Mail. Microsoft announced something similar at MEC using OWA and Outlook which would allow large files to be sent transparently using Skydrive as storage.

A Paradigm Shift - Is Security Software (as we currently know it) Becoming Extinct?

Posted by Judi Kohn

Jun 3, 2014 10:27:00 AM

After marketing commercial antivirus software for over 25 years, Symantec Corp. recently announced that traditional antivirus software is dead and traditional antivirus tactics are doomed to failure. They stated that part of the problem is that an increasing number of exploits use novel rather than known malicious code, so signature-based defenses plus the use of heuristics to identify Zero-Day vulnerabilities is no longer enough.

Microsoft Exchange Architectural Evolution – Cloud Messaging Services and the Evolution of Choice

Posted by Judi Kohn

Jun 2, 2014 9:31:00 AM

Technology. Most of us would agree that it is a key part of the world around us. In the field of technology, the first sixty plus years have seen spectacular progress in all aspects of the domain. Ever shrinking transistors have enabled the production of increasingly complex and cost-effective microchips, a scenario that has driven the surge in technological design. This fits with Moore’s Law, the observation (not a physical law) that the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years.

Getting Sold on Microsoft Office 365

Posted by Frederic Bourget

May 20, 2014 2:08:00 PM

Why is my Microsoft Rep only trying to sell us Microsoft Office 365? Do I have to go to the cloud?

For Microsoft, the stakes are tremendous. The Microsoft Office Suite, which has been and still is at the center of Microsoft's profits, has hit a wall. For years, Microsoft had been wondering how to add value so that you would buy the next version. But this has become more and more complicated. There are diminishing returns for end users and the barrier to change for new releases are getting closer and closer to that return.
