Interfusion has just launched Mailhop,
which provides companies with a fully managed, securely-hosted, end-to-end e-mail service. This gives organisations peace of mind,
by ensuring they receive business related email
securely and promptly.
Mailhop is securely hosted on Interfusion’s
carrier core MPLS network Nethop, and is sold
on a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. This
ensures there is no capital expenditure up front
and you simply buy it on a ‘‘per user’’, monthly
recurring charge basis.
Interfusion’s approach for businesses to engage
in cloud application services is unique, by
ensuring the user’s path to the hosted application
is on net, not via the internet. Interfusion’s
Mailhop offers maximum security, lowest latency
and a single support point for its customers.
For the past nine years, Interfusion, a business-
only telecoms operator, has been providing
customers with fully managed telecommunications
service. Mailhop is an extension of its current
management offerings, whereby it oversees
the complete solution, so there is no more ‘finger-
pointing’ between the application vendor
and the telecoms provider.
Mailhop eliminates spam and viruses by
using the latest content management systems to
scan your e-mail, detect and filter out any unwanted
file attachments based on policies that you control through an online administration
The simple-to-use administration console allows
your business policies to be implemented
by your IT personnel to ensure that e-mail attachments
sent or received are appropriate to
your organisation’s needs.
In addition to the mail cleaning services of
Mailhop, Interfusion also offers a complete hosted e-mail platform that is powered by Zimbra,
which was recently acquired byVM ware.
Interfusion has created a real alternative offering
to a hosted Exchange platform.
Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) is a truly
modern, innovative massaging and collaboration
Zimbra is the leading open source solution for
enterprise, service provider, education, and government environments, offering administrators
and their end-users unmatched benefits.
The powerful web client integrates e-mail,
contacts, shared calendar and online document
authoring into a rich browser-based interface.
Also,the unique open-source Zimlet technology
makes it easy for you to include custom ‘mashups’
in the Zimbra web client. Interfusion has
developed our own SpamCheck ‘mash-up’
which integrates our whitelist and blacklist antispam
technology into the Zimbra client.
Zimbra includes an elegant Ajax-based Admin
interface plus full scripting tools to manage
the ZCS-hosted server. Full support is provided
for standards-based APIs (IMAP/POP/iCal/
CalDAV) as well as MAPI and iSync,which enable
seamless compatibility with other clients
such as Microsoft Outlook, Apple desktop suite
and Mozilla Thunderbird.
ZCS also offers Zimbra Mobile,which provides
over-the-air ‘push’ synchronisation to
smartphones as well as a connector for Black-
Berry Enterprise Server.
Finally, Zimbra also features Archiving and
Discovery, an optional component to save and
search e-mails for various compliance issues,
such as Freedom of Information requests or the
necessity to archive financial data.
With the addition of an unrivalled help desk
support service from Interfusion, Mailhop can
provide a reliable and cost-effective fully outsourced managed
e-mail service to your organisation.
