Email Hosting Quickly Becoming Vital in the Enterprise
By Oliver VanDervoort, Contributing Writer
When it comes to enterprises, there are a couple of things every executive feels they need to have in order to be secure in their position. Right at the top of the list is an email hosting service that they can count on to deliver e-mails on time that they know isn’t incredibly easy to hack in to. Companies like SherWeb are working with email hosting services more and more in order to give upper management peace of mind in that area.
A new survey was just released that illustrates that most of the world’s top executives are not real big fans of social media when it comes to networking with their peers. Instead, Robert Half Management Resources says that business leaders around the United States actually prefer using their individual email hosting services to really network and communicate. The survey adds that using e-mail is fast becoming a more popular way to network than even face to face discussions, simply because using an email hosting service means that they can communicate easily in a highly secure manner and when they have the time to do so, rather than having to set aside meeting times.
Findings show that as many as 42 percent of those who participated said that they prefer using e-mail to network over any other kind of social networking. That number was quite a bit higher than the number of executives who network using sites like Facebook (News - Alert). Only 10 percent of those in the survey revealed they use social media sites to do their networking.
With workforces continuing to leverage e-mail rather than social networking avenues, it is key that users partner with a email hosting service provider that has a high SLA with top of the line security processes. A company like Sherweb fits this bill and it is able to offer up quite a bit of data storage capabilities. Further, the email hosting provider powers high availability centers that offer backup and failover processing so that execs who are relying on e-mail to get their messages out in a short period of time will never have that moment of sheer panic that comes with knowing something has gone terribly wrong.
