Hey this is Tom, owner of 702it. Thanks for stopping by.
Microsoft Exchange is the long time inside your office, do-it-yourself email server. It was a great tool in its day. Nowadays, running your own Microsoft Exchange server is one of the worst things you can do for your business from a security standpoint.
I’ll save you the analogies this video and give it to you straight. I have personally installed and upgraded every version of Exchange since 1999. I think we started out on Exchange 5.0. Honestly, it was a great tool and everyone knows how important email has been the past 25 years. I’ll wager $.27 cents that most of my time supporting businesses from 1999 until 2016 was maintaining Microsoft Exchange. Once we had it dialed in something silly would happen in addition to supporting users on that platform was time intensive.
Around Exchange 2016 was a good time to move your email to the cloud. About that time, Microsoft 365 cloud was really starting to flex its muscles and 365 email was and still is the best value for the money. Once we moved clients from on premise Exchange servers to 365, 50% of our help desk tickets vanished. On-premise Exchange server was a huge resource suck and today it is your biggest security liability. I’ll put a link in the description below but you can easily Google all the security issues Exchange has posed for small businesses the past few years.
The absolute #1 bestest thing you can do if your company is moving away from your own Exchange server and decommission it ASAP. I cannot stress enough how important this is to make it a priority. If email is important to your organization then it is vital to move your email to the cloud. Think about it. Microsoft wants you in their cloud. Their time and attention to Microsoft Exchange is not as strong as their commitment to their 365 cloud.
You don’t have to be technical to realize Microsoft Exchange is being put out to pasture and Microsoft will continue to improve and make 365 more secure. We don’t support Microsoft Exchange but we can help you migrate away from Exchange into the cloud. I can guarantee if you call me right now 702-357-4333 we will make your company safer by migrating away from your local Microsoft Exchange server. Thanks for watching and Make IT a Great day.
