Swisscom launches Hosted Exchange

28 April 2006

Small and medium-sized enterprises can now enjoy the advantages of an exchange environment without having to invest in their own IT infrastructure. This will allow customers to access their data at all times in or out of the office: The service enables the use of all Microsoft Outlook functions and guarantees secure access to e-mails, personal address lists (contacts) and notes. Using the Smart Office option with push function, all data can be accessed even when on the move.

Hosted Exchange Professional is a product for SMEs with no server infrastructure of their own, who want to increase efficiency in their daily operations using Microsoft Outlook 2003.

The exchange server can be accessed at any time and from any location via:

  • Outlook 2003 Client on computer or laptop, in the office or at home
  • A Web browser (e.g. in an Internet cafe) with Outlook Web Access
  • A mobile phone or Pocket PC with the Smart Office option

Security is guaranteed by filtering incoming e-mails through a multi-level virus scanner. An anti-spam function automatically checks each message for unsolicited content. And it goes without saying that access to the server is encrypted.

In conjunction with Swisscom Mobile's Smart Office option, Hosted Exchange Professional can be used for mobile access. The Smart Office option is a modern integrated solution that enables secure mobile access to exchange data. Outlook information can be called up on a mobile handheld at any time, from any location, via the push function. Until now such functionality was only available to users with their own server and IT infrastructure.

Hosted Exchange Professional comes with a comprehensive service package, regular updates, the latest software versions and virus scanners, anti-spam filters and much more. Regular backups guarantee multiple data saves.

Hosted Exchange Professional offers a choice three basic subscriptions with differently equipped exchange mailboxes to optimally meet different customer requirements. Various services and options are available irrespective of the selected basic subscription.
