Privacy is Key in Email Hosting
By Oliver VanDervoort, Contributing Writer
When it comes to the business world, the security of a company’s email hosting service is paramount. There are simply far too many documents and comments going out that need to be well protected within an enterprise and a major problem is that a breach in your e-mail security can come from a whole host of different sources. Hootsuite is one type of company that some people are highlighting as leaving them vulnerable to attacks.
The flaw in security was brought to light by the email hosting service in the most of embarrassing ways. An e-mail was originally supposed to go out to users privately, but a database issue showed everyone who received the message the e-mail addresses of around 4,000 other users. This kind of thing is what can make it that much easier for hackers to get access to your e-mail, even when you never directly had contact with them.
Email hosting is being adopted by more and more companies and that means that there are tons of chances to make the wrong choice. When a company like Hootsuite accidently sends out your e-mail address you want to make sure that you are at least covered by the email hosting company’s security measures.
Privacy is a very big issue, whether you are working in a company or you are just one user trying to make sure that your personal documents and e-mails aren’t flying all over the Internet. Companies like Sherweb understand that confidentiality is a very big issue when looking for an email hosting service that you can be happy with. That is why is powers Exchange 2013 in hopes that the offering will give you privacy and security all of the time with a minimal amount of effort needed on your part.
