AppRiver Offers Free Emergency Email Protection in Advance of Hurricane Isaac

AppRiver, LLC, a leading provider of email messaging and Web security solutions, today announced that it is once again offering its free Digital Disaster Recovery Service to protect businesses' mission-critical email operations during outages caused by natural disasters.

The AppRiver Digital Disaster Recovery Service averts email downtime by providing email continuity services to businesses facing imminent natural disaster. Affected businesses simply redirect email to AppRiver's secure data centers. Once the danger passes and connectivity is restored, AppRiver will forward all outage-period email activity to the company's email server, free of charge.

"The AppRiver Digital Disaster Recovery Service was designed to protect business email and productivity during times of natural disaster," said Michael Murdoch, CEO, AppRiver. "Because email has become an integral part of doing business today, even momentary downtime can have serious consequences for an organization's bottom line. That's why businesses of all sizes should have a backup option that can maintain the continuity of email during planned and unplanned downtimes."

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. Almost immediately thereafter, AppRiver will begin monitoring the company's email server activity. When AppRiver detects a loss in connectivity with the email server, the Digital Disaster Recovery Service will begin queuing the businesses' incoming email messages in one of its own securely located data centers until that company's email servers are up and running again. Since it was first begun in 2005, many companies have come to view this free service as an essential item on their disaster preparation checklist.
