Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Exchange has helped us with encryption.""Exchange's interface is good. All of our engineers like it and are accustomed to using it.""It's an excellent product from Microsoft. It provides more flexibility to the end-users. As it's connected with Teams, it also enables collaboration.""The initial setup is quite a straightforward process. I don't think it is a very complicated solution. Plenty of things could be more complex, but the ordinary, general settings are quite simple.""Exchange is very scalable, it's one of the most important things about this software.""The most valuable features of Microsoft Exchange are it is always online and has broad email and file-sharing capabilities.""The best features are that Exchange is very customer-friendly, its interface is self-explanatory, it doesn't hang, and it keeps evolving.""Microsoft Exchange is a powerful solution. It can easily integrate with Active Directory and other business applications. It does not require any training, it is flexible and simple to use. When comparing Microsoft Exchange to other solutions, such as Lotus Note, it is more straightforward for business."

"The most valuable features are ease of use and performance. However, the performance can depend on the workload being used.""The stability is excellent.""The archive allows the customers to search any items as far back as five or ten years ago.""The integration capabilities are second to none."

More Veritas Enterprise Vault Pros →

"An improvement would be to combine Exchange and Teams so that emails, calls, and chats can be integrated into one window.""The calendar integration in Exchange is not that great. The email features are okay, but it doesn't integrate well with the calendar and appointments, especially Zoom appointments. It integrates fine with Microsoft Teams, but Zoom is a challenge.""Load balancing is lacking.""The management of .pst files and archiving need improvement.""From a security perspective, Microsft Exchange can be improved. All that needs to be added is security, but that's an internal hierarchical problem from the product itself and not the end-users.""They could improve on the search function, it takes too much time.""There are issues when you add your domain to Microsoft Tenant, and you try to create that. Which is a problem for me.""For new users, it might take them some time to get used to the product."

More Microsoft Exchange Cons →

"The file-level archiving is very important in Enterprise Vault 12 and this doesn't really exist in early versions.""Dealing with personal information, such as documents that contain a personal number, personal ID or something like that should be improved. Sometimes it works poorly in that regard.""The integration needs to improve.""I cannot perform application backup, and I am not able to repair the license."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's working very well. There is no problem, but the price is not the best."
  • "Its price is okay."
  • "It's a little bit expensive."
  • "Its price is very affordable, and basically, it is the standard of the industry. We have the Exchange 365 subscription, which includes the usage of Exchange Online. I don't know the specific cost, but it is the retail price of Microsoft 365 E3 licenses. Microsoft's licensing is not very easy to understand. Microsoft changes rules every other day, which makes it difficult for us to understand the licensing not only for Exchange but also for other products. It can sometimes be really complex to understand what you need to have in order to comply with Microsoft licensing."
  • "Microsoft doesn't have a unit price, it's based on the quantity, and they offer great discounts."
  • "We are currently using enterprise licenses for the solution. They are different pricing models available. There are individual, cloud-based, and enterprise licenses all with different pricing models. The larger the number of users, the lesser the price. For small to medium companies like us, we feel it is expensive."
  • "Its price is fair."
  • "We pay for the license annually."

  • "There is a license required for this solution and it is typically is paid annually."
  • "The price for Enterprise Vault is around €100 per user."
