As a result, the employees can always stay connected and in sync.
Is it really the gold stardard of business communication suites?
Absolutely. Businesses that are using the Exchange server may benefit in several ways from it. The enhanced security features make the protection of data and messaging system much more stringent. The Exchange Server 2010 allows automatic encryption at both the channel and message levels, which helps in controlling access to data and ensure trusted communications both inside and outside the network. Regular updates for the multi-layered, anti-spam filtering helps to guard against new and varied, sophisticated spam and phishing threats. It also allows integration of top anti-virus solutions to protect against threats from malware. Premium protection is ensured through Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange and Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server, which offer multiple virus-scanning engines and multi-layered anti-spam protection. Employees can also access their emails from any remote location as the server uses Microsoft Office Outlook as its email platform.
The business efficiency is likely to be improved through a system of unified messaging in Exchange Server 2010. This voicemail and email messages are consolidated into a universal inbox, which allows the employees to access them easily. The Exchange system also offers automatic archiving and simultaneous searching across multiple end-user mailboxes, which eliminates the need to monitor user archiving. A preview of the voicemail messages is also available, while the greeting and call transfer options can also be customized so that any important call is not missed by the employees. As a result, this system eradicates the need to purchase or manage a separate voicemail system. The Exchange ActiveSync delivers a complete mobile experience for employees as all emails, voice mails, rights-protected messages, calendar requests, RSS feeds, and saved instant message conversations, are delivered to the inbox on a mobile device.
The Exchange boasts an improved Assistant, which allows users to schedule messages by fixing the start and endpoints. It also helps in creating separate messages for people inside and outside the organization. Its instant search feature allows users to find information to search the inbox using keywords. Other new capabilities include an RSS feed supporter, email scheduler, improved preview pane and an option to view attachment. The Microsoft Exchange provides several storage options that allow users to benefit from bigger and reliable mailboxes, while at the same time delivering support for web browsers and devices even at remote locations.
