The New Exchange
The next version of Exchange enables you to increase user productivity and keep your organization safe, while maintaining the control you need.
Remain in control, online and on-premises
Exchange enables you to tailor your solution based on your unique needs and ensures that your communications are always available, while you remain in control, on your own terms—online, on-premises, or a hybrid of the two.
Move to the cloud on your terms with flexible options, including Exchange hybrid deployment
Exchange provides you tools to move to the cloud on your terms, whether that's onboarding to the cloud overnight or managing a hybrid deployment with mailboxes on-premises and online. Limit user disruption when mailboxes are smoothly moved across environments and enable users to share calendars and schedule meetings, regardless if they are online or on-premises.
Decrease the amount of time spent managing your messaging systems while maintaining control
Manage powerful capabilities, including Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and site mailboxes, from the Exchange Administration Center (EAC)—a single, easy-to-use, web-based administration interface. Role-based access control empowers your helpdesk and specialist users to perform specific tasks without requiring full administrative permissions. This streamlined and intuitive experience helps you manage Exchange efficiently, delegate tasks, and focus on driving your business forward.
Keep all of your important data in one place with Exchange archiving, large mailboxes, and retention policies
Empower your users with a large mailbox to allow them the flexibility to retain email in their primary mailbox or move items to an in-place archive. With flexible and powerful retention policies, you can take control of your storage and compliance demands while keeping your users productive.
Do more, on any device
Exchange enables your users to be more productive by helping them manage increasing volumes of communications across multiple devices and work together more effectively as teams.
Give your users an intuitive, touch-enabled inbox experience
Your users can get more done from anywhere with a clean, uncluttered inbox that focuses on the relevant and important information.
Allow your users to work better together on teams and projects
Site mailboxes enable your users to collaborate on projects, get up to speed quickly on teams they join, and share information easily. Co-authoring, document storage, and versioning is provided by SharePoint, while messaging is handled by Exchange with a complete user experience, including document access, within Outlook.
Customize Exchange by integrating web-based apps for Outlook and Outlook Web App
Help your users spend less time switching between apps and make their communications experience more powerful with an extension model that allows you to provide easy plug-in access to web-based apps within both Outlook and Outlook Web App. With single sign-on to multiple apps, you can reduce complexity for users and give them secure, authorized access for each approved application.
Keep your organization safe
Exchange keeps your organization safe by enabling you to protect business communications and sensitive information in order to meet internal and regulatory compliance.
Eliminate email threats before they reach your network
Exchange actively protects your communications with built-in defenses against viruses, spam, and phishing attacks.
Protect your sensitive data and inform users of internal compliance policies
Prevent users from mistakenly sending sensitive information to unauthorized people. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) features identify, monitor, and protect sensitive data through deep content analysis, and PolicyTips in Outlook inform users about policy violations before sensitive data is sent. Built-in DLP policies are based on regulatory standards such as PII and PCI, plus Exchange can support other policies important to your business.
Enable your compliance officers to run In-Place eDiscovery across Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync from a single interface
Ensure internal and regulatory compliance by using the new eDiscovery Center to identify, hold, and analyze your organization's data from Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync. The data always remains in place, so you never have to manage a separate store of data.
