Want email security? Ditch sharing your Outlook user mailboxes!

Many businesses use generic user mailboxes in their Microsoft Outlook email system that can be logged onto or shared by multiple users. Shared mailboxes are useful for multiple employees at the company who need access to the same mailbox for a functional purpose. For example, a support@examplecorp.com email address might be shared by multiple peop...

Secure your business' Office 365 the easy way

The importance of strong cyber-security in today's cloud-enabled and highly mobile workforce can't be overstated. Right now, there are thousands of hackers and criminals probing the cyber-security defenses at small-to-mid sized businesses (SMBs). Far from being immune to the threat of hackers, SMBs have become a major target. Recent stats point to...

Avoid the high cost of cyberattacks in 2020

The FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center issued an advisory in the summer of 2019 warning of an increase in a type of fraud called a Business Email Compromise (BEC). A BEC scam targets employees with access to company finances such as your accounts payable department. For example, a typical BEC scam looks like an email from the company's CEO to a...

How to set up zero trust security at your business

Almost a decade ago, cybersecurity industry analyst John Kindervag introduced "zero trust security" to the IT world. The idea was to keep user data safe from cyberattacks no matter what devices or networks were used to access the data.

Are you ready for the new file sharing experience in Microsoft Teams?

If your organization uses Microsoft Office 365 (or the Microsoft 365 bundles), then chances are that you've been spending more of your time collaborating in Microsoft Teams. In just the past couple of years, Microsoft Teams has quickly evolved from a business-oriented chat to the premier hub for teamwork. That's mostly due to Teams' deep integrati...

Can your company thrive as a "cloud only" workplace?

A new client for Amaxra told me about how a recent power outage resulted in his business losing an entire day for all employees across the company. But this company isn't a factory dependent on electricity to manufacture tons of perfectly-machined widgets; it's an office where employees do all of their very expensive and hourly-billed work on comp...

Why email backups are crucial for your business

Does your business archive data for audit and regulation purposes? You might believe that because you're a small business that doesn't have an industry or governmental regulatory regime, there's no good reason to archive data such as emails sent to, from, or between your employees. But even if your business isn't subject to specific data-retention...

How companies enhance remote work with Microsoft 365 Business

Mobile workforces are more productive than ever. Back in 2015, the "Global Mobile Workforce Forecast" report from a firm called Strategic Analytics predicted that by 2020 almost half of the world's workers would be mobile. Obviously one the key enablers of that mobile workforce revolution is near-ubiquity of broadband in most major cities. Another...

New must-have Outlook features for your mobile workforce

Amaxra recognizes that mobile workers are better workers and believe in the power of Microsoft Outlook in Office 365 as a communication hub for Android and iOS devices. What makes Outlook for mobile platforms so useful is "feature parity" with the desktop—its ability to perform typically desktop-oriented tasks on a phone or tablet while you'...

Organizing your Outlook emails for a stress-free holiday

The holidays are upon us. As both the calendar year and monthly sales cycle comes to a close, businesses tend to double up on the amount of emails sent to their prospects and customers. For many of us, this increase in email is frustrating. The last thing any busy person at this time of the year wants to do is waste a moment of their day managing ...

Drop Dropbox to optimize online business collaboration

Some new Office 365 customers have asked us for advice on ditching their old consumer Dropbox accounts and using OneDrive For Business as an integrated enterprise-grade shared file collaboration solution for their company. While we have blogged in the past about typical OneDrive For Business and SharePoint Online storage usage scenarios, this is an ex...
