Avoid Digital Disaster
Free Email Continuity Program for Businesses Threatened by Natural Disaster
First made available in 2005, the AppRiver Digital Disaster Recovery Program is an emergency email continuity program provided free by AppRiver to businesses facing imminent natural disasters. Businesses threatened by approaching hurricanes or other catastrophic events may simply redirect their email to AppRiver through our secure data centers. Once the danger passes and connectivity is restored, AppRiver will forward all outage-period e-mail activity to the company's e-mail server, free of charge.
"The AppRiver Digital Disaster Recovery program can keep bad weather from creating a perfect storm for businesses," said Michael Murdoch, CEO, AppRiver. "During a disaster, business owners have enough on their plates. We’re happy to provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing your email is safe.”
Registration is simple and typically takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Businesses simply contact AppRiver to receive step-by-step instructions for redirecting their email to AppRiver's secure servers. Very quickly, AppRiver will beginmonitoring the company's e-mail server activity. When AppRiver detects a loss in connectivity with the email server, the Digital Disaster Recovery Program will begin queuing the businesses' incoming email messages in one of its own securely located data centers until that company's e-mail servers are up and running again. For this reason, many companies have come to view this free service as an essential item on their disaster preparation checklist.
