E-mail is a necessity these days for businesses to thrive, just like humans need air to stay alive. It serves as a vital communication channel between companies and their many divisions, as well as a lifeline between a firm and its prospective and current customers in order to remain up-to-date on newly released products and solutions.
While there are a variety of email hosting platforms currently on the market, no one offering is more secure and reliable than Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange 2010. Boasting capabilities including sharing documents, calendars, contacts and tasks whether at the office or on-the-go via a BlackBerry, iPhone or Android (News - Alert), enterprise in nearly every industry out there can ramp up productivity and efficiency while simultaneously saving money. Easy to implement, the offering is guaranteed to reduce downtime to zero as well as powers a highly reliable infrastructure.
Additionally, due the fact that Exchange 2010 mandates SSL certificates are utilized to improve security within all connections to the e-mail server, it is important for consumers to first understand what this term means. An SSL certificate is code that is increasingly leveraged to up the ante on security within all forms of online communication.
A recent related white paper stated, “It’s kind of like sealing a letter in an envelope before sending it through the mail. SSL certificates also inspire trust because each SSL certificate contains identification information. When you request an SSL certificate, a third party verifies your organization’s information and issues a unique certificate to you incorporating that information.”
It is vital to note here that there are three different types of SSL certificates which include self-signed or ones that you develop from the ground up yourself; Windows Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificates; and certificates from trusted independent certificate authorities. However, before attempting to get these certificates up and running, be sure to highlight the domain name of your sever and then add this name to the trusted server list within your active directory.
