A hosted Exchange provider’s viability rests in part on its ability to offer a more secure environment than customers could achieve on their own. This means that few businesses stand to lose as much in a security breach.

As such, the hosted Exchange provider will invest a great deal more in security than their customers could ever afford in an on-premise deployment.

This is especially true for physical security. At the core of Capital Business System’s hosted Exchange are physical facilities that house our servers and network infrastructure. These datacenter facilities employ comprehensive physical security controls such as video surveillance, biometric authentication and other monitoring tools. It would be extremely cost prohibitive for a small or medium-sized business to replicate this level of physical security in their own email infrastructure.

In addition to physical controls, Capital Business Systems security capabilities are continually measured against well-established auditing standards (such as SSAE 16 Type II, PCI, or especially SOC 2 Type II). These audits confirm that the provider’s security and data protection meet standards that are far more stringent than what a business could realistically achieve with their own on premise environment.

In addition to hosted Exchange, Capital Business Systems offers a holistic Managed Network Services solution that allows you to transfer the risk and accountability of your network to us, so you can continue growing your business – something that typical break/fix service models can’t offer.
