Best practices: Strategies for boosting your practice’s information immunity

Physicians know how to treat human-borne viruses but are often unprepared to deal with the ones disseminated by computers. These threats, which carry legal, financial and public relations consequences, must be managed effectively to protect your practice and its patients.

Email archiving: There’s more to archiving than keeping copies of old emails

Email is the lifeblood of modern business, without which productivity and day-to-day communications soon break down. Incidents such as the failure of BlackBerry® maker RIM’s back-end systems which crippled millions of BlackBerry email smartphones serve as an easy reminder of just how important email is today.

Archiving technologies: Email management, compliance, stubbing and journaling

Email archiving is no longer an option for organizations and the key to a successful implementation is choosing the right email archiving technology for that organization.

Going beyond Exchange 2010: Why it pays to have a dedicated email archiving solution

Why do you need a dedicated email archiving solution? If you have migrated to Microsoft Exchange 2010, would the in-built archiving functionality not suffice? Offloading your email archiving needs to a dedicated, central repository not only results in improved server performance but provides the organization and its users with greater accessibility to email than ever before.
