We’ve all faced the familiar “bounce back” reply when failing to realize the file that we’re sending through email is simply too large. The next several minutes are spent figuring out which alternative makes the most sense, and this usually results in using an FTP server or sharing files through the cloud. And while both of these options work – especially file sharing in the cloud, which is an excellent collaboration tool – will email ever be an option again?
The short answer is yes. Microsoft Office 365 may have ended this dilemma with their limitless email solution for sending and receiving emails. And since FTP servers are likely going the way of the floppy disk, it’s good to have more options.
LIMITLESS FILE SHARING AND BETTER SECURITY
Most businesses worry about security, whether they’re operating a small business that requires emailing basic contracts or a Fortune 500 firm handling highly sensitive information. Microsoft Office 365 allows large files to be sent and received securely through email.
Industry-leading anti-malware protection and anti-spam filtering guard email from threats, which allows you to send items that were previously thought to be too sensitive to direct through email.
In addition to anti-malware and anti-spam protection, you can also encrypt your emails for additional protection. Encryption is available for internal emails as well as to outside the company, regardless of the destination, whether it’s through Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook or another email provider. This is tremendously helpful in a variety of situations, such as:
- SENDING CONTRACTS TO CLIENTS
- FORWARDING POLICY DETAILS THROUGH EMAIL
- DIRECTING HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION TO A CLIENT OR CO-WORKER WHO IS WORKING REMOTELY
The option of encrypting email prevents all worry of unauthorized viewing of highly sensitive information, which makes email more functional and useful for day-to-day business operations.
