Remain in control

Exchange lets you tailor your solution based on your unique needs and ensures that your communications are always available, while you remain in control. Move to the cloud overnight, deploy on-premises, or manage a hybrid deployment with mailboxes that are both online and on-premises. Manage powerful capabilities, including data loss prevention and site mailboxes, from the easy-to-use, web-based Exchange admin center. Role-based access helps you manage Exchange efficiently and delegate tasks. With Exchange archiving, large mailboxes, and retention policies, your users can keep important data in one place and you can take control of your storage and compliance demands.

Do more on any device

Exchange lets your users be more productive by helping them manage increasing volumes of communications across multiple devices and work together more effectively as teams. With an uncluttered inbox that focuses on the relevant and important information, your users can get more done, faster. Enhance collaboration with Site mailboxes that let users get up to speed quickly on teams they join and share information easily. Co-authoring, document storage, and versioning are provided by SharePoint, while messaging is handled by Exchange. Simplify communications by customizing Exchange by integrating web-based apps for Outlook and Outlook Web App. Single sign-on to multiple apps reduces complexity for users.

Protect your organization

Exchange helps protect business communication and sensitive information, simplifying internal and regulatory compliance. Built-in defenses against viruses, spam, and phishing attacks actively protect your communications. Data loss prevention features identify, monitor, and protect sensitive data through deep content analysis, and Policy Tips in Outlook inform users about policy violations before sensitive data is sent. Your compliance officers can run In-Place eDiscovery across Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business from the eDiscovery Center to identify, hold, and analyze your organization's data. The data always remains in place, so you never have to manage a separate store of data.
