Email archiving for MSPs is a service that can add value for clients of Managed Service Providers and increase Manage Service Providers´ profits. Email archiving is an easy service to implement and manage, yet has a high margin, generates regular additional income, and is easy to sell to clients.
Practically every type of business should be archiving emails in the cloud. Cloud-based email archiving offers the benefits of preventing email data loss, increasing productivity, reducing the load on the mail server, and enhancing compliance with federal and industry regulations. Yet few email service providers – including Office 365 – offer backup and recovery services in their basic packages; and, even when they do, they are not necessarily suitable for most businesses due to failing to archive emails in real time.
The Benefits of Email Archiving in More Depth
Email archiving at the point an email passes through the mail server prevents email data loss from both malicious insiders and cybercriminals. A copy of each email is saved in its original form and sent to a remote data center, so that if an email is deleted – either maliciously or accidentally – it can be restored with the click of a mouse. This process can be used to reverse not only small scale data loss, but also the entire email database in the event of a cyberattack or natural disaster.
The ability to restore accidently deleted emails with the click of a mouse significantly increases productivity because – according to a 2016 Adobe survey – 57% of employees spend at least one hour per day searching for lost or misfiled documents. Not only that; but, when they realize they have deleted an email by mistake, the recovery of the email usually involves a call to the IT Helpdesk – reducing the productivity of two employees rather than one.
With regard to reducing the load on the mail server, cloud-based email archiving enables historic emails to be deleted from individual mailboxes to free up space and prevent quotas being exceeded. Emails stored in the cloud can be easily searched for and quickly retrieved on demand – provided employees conducting the searches have the correct permissions. Fortunately, access controls are easy to apply as are automatic retention periods to enhance compliance with federal and industry regulations.
However, email archiving compliance concerns more than applying access controls and retention periods. Depending on which regulations a business is subject to, it may be necessary to demonstrate archived emails have not been amended in any way (i.e. to comply with eDiscovery rules), that they have not been accessed without authorization (i.e. to comply with HIPAA), or that they have been deleted once the data within the emails has served its intended purpose (i.e. to comply with GDPR).
