AppRiver Introduces Exchange Lite and Exchange Lite Plus to its Secure Hosted Exchange Mailbox Options


London (UK); 8 March 2016: AppRiver, a leading provider of email messaging and Web security solutions, has introduced two new license options to its Secure Hosted Exchange mailbox for Exchange 2013/2016 – Exchange Lite and Exchange Lite Plus. AppRiver Secure Hosted Exchange is a straightforward email service for security conscious businesses, needing reliable messaging and mobile device synchronisation, without the expense and hassle of managing it themselves.

According to a recent study by insurance company Aviva, more than a third of business owners were the victim of cybercrimes like hacking, phishing and pharming in 2015. For those who suffered a cybercrime 75 per cent said it cost up to £1,000 to put things right. With malicious programs - such as Ransomware, Trojans and SpyWare, typically delivered via email into the heart of an organisation, secure electronic communication is vital.

AppRiver’s co-founder and CEO, Michael Murdoch, explains, “Secure communication is vital for businesses today, as is connectivity. An organisation that becomes infected with ransomware can quickly find it’s unable to function, equally a data breach can quickly erode customer trust. Our embedded SecureTide™ spam and virus protection service removes the risk of security problems meaning businesses can enjoy spam-free email, mobile device synchronisation plus all the other benefits of Microsoft Exchange - without the expense and headache of managing in-house mail servers. With email performance another high priority, we’re the first Microsoft Exchange hosting provider to embed the Akamai global distribution platform into our service so customers receive faster connectivity and more reliable performance from both wireline and wireless business email at no additional cost.”

AppRiver's service synchronises all mobile devices - phones, smartphones, tablet computers and other devices seamlessly. Improved Outlook Web Access (OWA) adds an additional way to access email from any computer or device connected to the internet.

To help companies meet data protection compliance, and further reduce mail latency, the service is hosted in AppRiver’s servers housed in Switzerland.

Exchange Lite includes a 2GB mailbox with the option to add additional services – with prices starting at £2.50 (€3.20).   Exchange Lite Plus offers a 25GB mailbox and ActiveSync (enabling mobile device synchronisation) as standard for just RRP £3.40 (€4.50) per user, per month.

Both Lite and Lite Plus include AppRiver’s SecureTide anti-virus and spam filtering protection, an additional 50GB online archive and POP/IMAP connection, with an option to upgrade Plus to a MAPI outlook connection. AppRiver will be adding DLP encryption to both mailbox options as standard.
