Cloud Based Email Hosting – What & Why?

Are you still using a non-web based desktop email client like Mozilla Thunderbird, MS Outlook for your business? If yes, then you are definitely missing out on something big that can actually help increase efficiency within your corporate.

And that something big is “Cloud Computing”.

From Wikipedia:

Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet). The name comes from the common use of a cloud-shaped symbol as an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it contains in system diagrams.

How will cloud computing help my business/company/corporate?

Say for example, your corporate or a small medium business has more than 50 to 100 employees.

Now it is highly time consuming to install & configure a desktop email client for each employee in order to set up their email.

Technology

With advancing technology & business requirements it is natural for employees to have different devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones & traditional desktops. Each of these have a different operating system such as iOS, Android, Windows, Linux etc. You can easily communicate with your employees while they are out at a meeting with a client or say when they are working from home, with a cloud based email service.

Data security

Data security is now becoming an important factor for big corporates as well as small medium businesses. Data theft through email is on rise as any sensitive data can be emailed instantly to desired email address and can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Individual’s identity theft via suspicious e-mail or phishing is one such similar attempt made by fraudulent.

Sending & receiving emails from a personal email id poses a risk of data theft as sending data out via a free email service such as Gmail is difficult to monitor. Hence, personal email accounts are beyond the control and scope of corporate investigations. It becomes essential to choose a secure cloud based email hosting which provide all features like spam protection, security, administrative privileges to manage and control the user accounts across your company.

Rediffmail Pro offers all the above features & is definitely the email hosting service to choose to take advantages of cloud computing technology.
