Add-On Managed Service
In addition to the core set of Exchange, SharePoint and Lync Managed Services, Avanade also offers a set of "add-on" services which enhance the core set of Exchange, SharePoint and Lync offerings:
The explosive growth of email and document management storage can put a major strain on your Exchange or SharePoint system, dramatically impacting performance for all users. In order to help manage this load, Avanade’s Archiving Service provides a complete archiving set of solutions which are virtually transparent to end users and which assist with standard archiving for performance all the way up to archiving for compliance and e-Discovery. And the whole system is protected by Avanade backup and disaster recovery solutions.
Disasters happen. Without a redundant system in place, you could lose email service and business-critical data just when your people need it most. Our Continuity Service delivers instantaneous business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities for always-on email services, so your people can continue sending and receiving email via Outlook when outages occur. Because uninterrupted email service isn’t just important to daily business productivity, it's also the single most effective way to expedite your company’s recovery after a disaster.
As businesses rely more on email, they face bigger and more dangerous risks from web-borne threats like viruses, worms, Trojans, phishing and more. In response, Avanade’s Filtering Service provides a comprehensive anti-virus/anti-spam solution that safeguards your data and keeps malware from penetrating your networks. With our Filtering Services, users enjoy a virus and spam-free messaging experience, while IT concentrates on core business development rather than spam levels, contaminated machines and new virus attacks.
Email Encryption Service
Email is the most common business communication tool there is, but is it secure? Before reaching the intended recipient, email travels across a wide variety of public servers and can be intercepted at any point. If not properly encrypted, messages and their attachments are left vulnerable to breaches. Whether you need to comply with government regulations or just want to protect the sensitive information of your customers and partners, Avanade’s Email Encryption Service is an easy, convenient service that ensures sensitive information in email stays private and trusted relationships are protected.
Load Balancing, Storage, Switching and BackUp
Incorporated as a complimentary and value-added enhancement to all of our core Services for Exchange, Lync and SharePoint Managed Services, Avanade can optionally provide monitoring and management for the following:
F5, Barracuda® and Kemp hardware load balancers
EMC, NetApp®, Hitachi and Nimble™ storage
Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) for Exchange and SharePoint backups
