Office 365 isn’t the only option for full-featured business email technology.

The recent hack on Microsoft Exchange reiterates just how challenging it can be to host your own mail server in 2021. While Microsoft 365 and Gmail for business are both great alternatives to the traditional onsite model, however the monthly cost can be a deterrent for businesses that have high staff numbers, but low email storage requirements.

Virtual CIO Group provides hosted business email services complete with spam filtering, activesync, autodiscover and contacts and calendar integration, and at a sharper price then competing offerings.

All of the features of 365, without the price tag.
