IT Backbone partner with Mimecast, a leading provider of email security, continuity, and management solutions, to deliver feature-rich email continuity services:
Highly Reliable: IT Backbone’s email continuity service provides a comprehensive Service Level Agreement (SLA), which includes a 99.5% uptime guarantee. It is supported by Office 365, with a highly redundant cloud infrastructure that ensures your system maintains functionality throughout all scenarios. Whether you choose your primary hosting platform as Office 365 or prefer a more personal approach with your own physical or virtual server, our email continuity service will provide the efficiency and productivity that is crucial for the modern-day business.
Simplified Management: IT Backbone’s email continuity service is capable of offering spam filtering and email continuity, and integrating a variety of solutions into a single interface. No matter where they are, your organisation’s workforce will have easy access to their email services and settings. They can manage their services directly from Outlook, through the mobile app, or with the online portal. Simplifying user access ensures better security, since it reduces the temptation to use personal accounts or other less secure methods for work-related tasks. This will also cut down on the time system administrators must spend providing user support.
Easy Configuration: There is no need to purchase new equipment or alter your existing network infrastructure. In addition, IT Backbone’s email continuity service can be configured to work with hosted email services like Office 365.
Also included in the SLA are provisions for enterprise-grade virus protection and spam filtering accuracy, with less than 0.0001% false positives and less than 2% false negatives.
