Thinking about moving your electronic services to the cloud? LiveOffice, a SaaS provider of email archiving and hosting, makes the leap that much easier with the release of their CloudMerge technology–offering email archiving for most cloud email providers on the market. In addition to supporting cloud based email archiving, LiveOffice is able to archive email which is on-premise, thus creating a unified archive for all of your email.
A core belief of LiveOffice is that your email archive should be portable. By hosting your archive on their end, customers are able to migrate from their current provider to a cloud provider without having to deal with the possibility of losing precious information. Additionally, if customers are dissatisfied with their cloud provider down the road, they can migrate to another provider seamlessly–while keeping all their emails–due to the capabilities of LiveOffice’s products.
Not only does LiveOffice archive your email, but if your primary cloud-based hosting service experiences an outage, it doubles as a backup. If an email provider does experience an outage, LiveOffice’s users are still able to send and receive messages, including attachments, from the archive while the provider is down.
In order to ensure the security of your information, data between LiveOffice and the customer’s site is encrypted via TLS protocol and the LiveOffice data centers are certified by the SAS Type II audit–the standard requirement for SaaS companies.
Upgrading their search features, LiveOffice now has a personal search piece, along with a compliance and discovery function in order to help comply with SEC/FINRA regulations as well as helping with end-to-end audit services.
LiveOffice has also debuted a new informational portal, CloudEmail101.org, in order to help assist those who are thinking about migrating to the cloud. CloudEmail101.org offers a “Cloud Email Buyer’s Guide,” which compares the various solutions currently available.
It should be noted that although LiveOffice has taken a big step forward in the industry by offering their services for most cloud providers, they do not support Rackspace (TechCrunch’s provider) at this time. A full list of those they support is at the bottom of this post.
