Cloud-based email could solve issues surrounding universal access, server space and pesky upgrades. With some, however, it would raise questions of security. An organisation’s most sensitive information can be stored in its emails – just ask James Murdoch.  

But cloud providers have seen the opportunity to add value – with high-level encryption services, for example, that may otherwise have been prohibitively expensive. For some considering moving to the cloud, a hybrid solution is the answer – keeping servers in-house but having a cloud provider run spam and virus filters. The top consideration for most, however, remains financial savings – particularly if faced with a company merger or major upgrade.
