Just in time for the upcoming Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange Connections conference that will be held in Las Vegas from October 29 to November 1, 2012, technology experts are abuzz talking about the much-awaited and newly debuted email hosting solution, Exchange 2013.
Nathan Winters, a proficient Exchange writer, will speak for the first time at the event this year in regards to all of the different projects he is working on with this revamped email hosting offering as well as will be sharing ideas, news and reviews in regards to Exchange 2013.
He is a graduate from Royal College of Music and when asked about how he is now working in the area of technology when he once studied music, Nathan said it was an “interesting transition.” Before finishing his graduate degree, he was working with a college for a few hours because he didn’t want to do it full-time. He ultimately decided to take an MCSE course, which he successfully completed and then started out in the college’s IT department.
In an interview, Nathan spoke about FOPE and ForeFront, and significant changes that are coming in this product line. He said, “FOPE and Forefront are changing. We are implementing basic anti-virus/antispam in the Exchange product, which we will then pair with Exchange Online Protection (the development of FOPE). I will cover the technology behind EOP, which comes from FOPE, and will then dive into how customers can use EOP to protect themselves both from viruses and spam coming in, and how data loss prevention (DLP) features can stop data leaking out from Exchange.”
During the informative session, Nathan Winters will also speak about PSTs and how they are a headache for any organization. Exchange 2013 can bring data to Office 365 or Exchange, finding the PSTs on PCs or the network and giving users the option to link them to a user mailbox or move them either to the archive mailbox or mailbox. He will also touch on certain integral features that are coming up with Exchange Server 2013, such as modern folders and a mailbox.
While site mailboxes will enable users to complete their work from anywhere while managing their documents and e-mails all in one place, SharePoint can be used for versioning, document management, and co-authoring.
