No Training Required

ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is accessible securely over the web through Outlook 2010, giving you nearly all of the capabilities of Microsoft Outlook through any web browser and platform. If you're familiar with Outlook, the look and feel of LiveArchive will be easy to pick up and use no matter which platform you find yourself on during an outage. Windows or Mac, Internet Explorer or Safari, you'll be able to read and respond to a year worth of emails, you'll be able to schedule appointments, send contact cards and even create journals and notes in the same way you do on your Outlook.

Protect Your Brand & Reputation

ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is designed to help you preserve your brand and your reputation when disaster strikes. Being able to send and receive email with your email address, even when your servers are offline or office has no power, is critical to your existing relationships and your customers understanding that the message is indeed coming from you. Because LiveArchive is transparently integrated into ExchangeDefender, people you correspond with will not receive bounces or rejection notices while your mail servers are offline. Furthermore, LiveArchive is always on so even if an outage only impacts one user (i.e. corrupted mailbox) they can use LiveArchive while the rest of the organization relies on the mail server.

With LiveArchive, nobody will ever know that you may be experiencing technical problems with your email.

Benefits Beyond Interruptions

ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is primarily designed to allow the businesses continue communicating when the internal IT infrastructure becomes unavailable, but there are many benefits beyond service interruptions. Because ExchangeDefender LiveArchive can hold up to 1 year of inbound and outbound mail by default, users can rely on it to access mail that may have otherwise been deleted or archived by the corporate policy. If internal IT staff needs to make service changes and restarts during business hours, users can continue to count on LiveArchive while the servers are under maintenance. For many business travelers that are in corporate environments that prohibit external connections to OWA or do not have a webmail solution at all, LiveArchive provides a fantastic way to be productive and not interrupt corporate policies.

Privacy and Security You Can Trust

ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is a secure subscription service, so you do not have to worry about your data being indexed to sell you advertising. All connections to LiveArchive are encrypted using 128bit SSL certificates, the same level of security enforced by online banking web sites and payroll companies. The solution is actively monitored 24/7/365 and has security auditing levels that are unmatched in the industry. Combined with the proven security and audit controls present in Microsoft Exchange, the #1 collaboration platform in the world, ExchangeDefender LiveArchive provides higher level of security than on-premise mail servers that are often setup with system defaults without tuning and auditing compliance. After all, ExchangeDefender is a security product designed to keep you safe and secure.

*For users that rely on email for correspondence, outbound network will automatically archive all outbound emails. If you have a business requirement that includes sending out notifications, automated responses, marketing, large distribution lists or other non-correspondance items, we offer outbound-jr high speed relay designed for that specific need. Please remember that since this mailbox content can be edited it's not considered compliant.
