We know time is valuable. That’s why Essentials provides unmatched technology without the management and deployment headaches. Administrators simply login to the online console and manage all users and account settings from a single, secure platform.

You get:

  • Accurate email classification
  • Content control for social-media accounts
  • Robust filter rules engine
  • Per-user controls and quarantine access

Business Continuity

You rely heavily on email to do business. You might manage a few minutes without email—but what about a few hours or a few days?

We provide:

  • 24x7 Emergency Inbox to provide users email access when the normal mail environment is unavailable
  • Instant Replay sends (or resends) messages to your messaging server for 30 days
  • Email spooling and failover
