    Ranking at 5 is not a criticism! That is because Direct Email services are a commodity, in my opinion, and if a colleague asked me to recommend DataMotion, I would just say, "They meet the objectives for what we need; see if that applies to you. And shop around for the most competitive price offering; see the DirectTrust alliance for many vendors to consider."

    For a medium and larger size company, Microsoft Exchange brings a lot of value for a company. The solution is scalable, can be deployed on multiple devices, is cloud compatible and Microsoft brings a lot of support when needed. It is a great collaboration platform that helps teams to schedule and exchange information.

    • Identifying the source of an issue and fixing it can be challenging. Some of the problems that develop in Exchange are not obvious, even to seasoned administrators.
    • The hardware and, more significantly, the software needed for such exchange are expensive.
    • You don't want a newbie to put this up or manage it. Skilled administrators with knowledge of Microsoft Exchange are required.

        It is the best, and perhaps only, email solution worth considering.

        Usability

        DataMotion, Inc.

        I could see DataMotion being used anywhere that needs to send confidential data or information within our outside of the workplace. This platform sends and receives emails securely. Also, the DataMotion support team response time is very helpful/appreciated and they will help you get things up and running quickly. I would definitely recommend [it].

        Microsoft Exchange is well suited for inexperienced Messaging Admins and veterans alike. If you have no idea of the fundamentals of modern email (SMTP, mail headers, MX Records, SPF/DKIM, Encryption, etc.) and just need to get people's mailboxes and calendars the support they need, you can use it with confidence. If you are an old pro and want to leverage and dovetail your Powershell and AD with Exchange, you will be rewarded for your efforts.

        DataMotion, Inc.

        Responses always seem timely and the support seems to be pretty good. We haven't really had any major issues with the software yet, so I that's the reason I gave only an 8. If something more difficult were to pop up, I'd have a little more to say on the support for the product.

        We have a good enterprise agreement with Microsoft which affords us quick phone support. I have found the support staff knowledgeable and prompt with a solution when required. At times it may be difficult to schedule a call back, this is mainly due to our need for calls early in the morning which happens to be during a shift change at Microsoft support.

        Implementation/conversion can be quite complex and, unless you have certified Exchange administrators in-house, you should strongly consider a 3rd party consultant for this implementation.

        Alternatives Considered

        DataMotion, Inc.

        Egress offers a similar system, although the login and user interface are slightly slower and feel a little more clunky. Upon using DataMotion, it just clicks that both clients and colleagues would prefer a simpler, more streamlined system that allows for minimum effort and maximum reward. We feel that clients feel the same too.

        Microsoft Exchange Product The best cloud-based enterprise-grade archiving platform with a host of features that enable files to be securely archived and retrieved with advanced search options. This tool is very easy to use and has a User-friendly interface. It is a highly reliable platform that allows all employees to automatically store their data without any limitations. It offers a cost-effective solution with customized policy management. We are happy that the customer support team is always fast and concerned, and the product's uninterrupted service experience. It is very good that it stores data in real-time without losing it, even in the event of a disaster. The cost-effective solution and integration with other tools are seamless.

        • After testing I found Exchange very good at removing/quarantining malware.
        • The Global Address List is great for finding the correct person within the organization to deal with.
        • The Clutter feature is terrible. Sometimes putting important emails into that folder for no discernible reason.
