November 2018 |


As the holiday season begins it is important to be thankful for all that we have and give back to our communities. As a company we decided to conduct a food drive for the month of November to donate to our local food banks in order to provide more meals for families in need.

Share the love this holiday season and give back to your communities!

Tip of the Month...

Feeling thankful? Journal all of your thoughts, achievements and goals in one of these apps.

All our best,

Solution Spotlight: Email Backups

Like most companies, the amount of email you’ve sent and received over the past decade has been increasing exponentially. Email is convenient, flexible, and can be used to keep extensive records of everything we do in the workplace. Has your boss ever asked you to dig out an email about a previous project? Do you feel confident that you could easily retrieve an email from a year ago? How about two?  How about five?

What would happen if you couldn’t find that email from 5 years ago?

Maybe you didn’t think you’d ever need it – your mailbox was filling up and you needed to clear out space.  You were absentmindedly checking work emails on a weekend and accidentally deleted it because smartphone screens are small and you have normal adult-sized hands.  Is your boss going to be sympathetic? Likely not. 

How do you prepare for such a scenario?

If you’ve migrated to a cloud email provider, like Microsoft’s Office 365 or Google’s GSuite, you’ve already taken a great step forward to secure your data.  These platforms have clusters located across the world to provide a resilient infrastructure – if a hurricane destroys a data center in Georgia, you’ll still be able to access all of your emails because your emails already replicated to their data center in California.

“I’ve got office 365, No need to worry.”

You may be surprised, though, to learn that the average Office 365 plan does not include email backup.  If you deleted an email from your inbox and then deleted it from your trash (which generally is purged by itself on a rolling basis), you’re not going to be able to recover that email if you need it down the line.
