Electronic mail and collaboration platform have become a critical success factor for every organization. Most organizations use email as the primary method of communication with users, partners and suppliers.
Microsoft Exchange server is one of the most popular services for emailing and collaboration in the world. It is suitable for use in all IT systems relying on Microsoft Windows infrastructure. Microsoft Outlook, as one of the most popular email applications, can reach its full potential only in cooperation with Exchange system.

  • Keeping emails at one centralized location  
  • Calendar sharing, group scheduling of meetings – sending meeting inquiries, tracking and  changing arrangements
  • Task sharing among users
  • Secure connection of Outlook client both locally and online
  • AntiSpam solution in the email itself  
  • Different access to email: Web and mobile search engines, Outlook, Smartphones, tablets, etc.
  • Using “public folders“ for collaboration.

  • Improved inbox archiving
  • Better mobile client support
  • Outlook Web Access features are comparable to the ones in Outlook
  • Simplified administration and delegation of administration
  • Possibility of advanced integration with other Microsoft Office services (SharePoint, Lync, ...)
  • Running on slower and cheaper disks
  • Achieving high availability of bases without using SAN system (DAG) 
FortiMail is a solution for electronic mail by company Fortinet. It is an email system with proven security and stability which due to its flexibility and functionality is intended for organizations of all sizes regardless of their existing infrastructure. Having three modes of operation the device provides flexibility and requires minimal infrastructure modifications.

  2. In a gateway mode the device is located between the Internet and the local network. All external email communication passes through it, and after AV and Antispam scanning, emails are forwarded to email server.   
  3. In a server mode Fortmail operates as a email server and inboxes can be located on it or on the external devices. There is a possibility of integration to directory services, and  POP3, IMAP and Webmail are also available.
Some of the characteristics of FortiMail are:
  • The possibility of storing emails, quarantine and archives to local disks and NFS, iCSI  external devices

    • External SPAM and internal  spambots
    • Malware/Phishing
