Power of Hybrid Mail Solution - Office 365 + Cloud Zimbra

What is the need for a hybrid mail solution?

In most organizations, power users utilize all the features of office 365. However, the general user uses the email functionality, the same could be observed on the adoption dashboard of office 365.

For e.g., the C level executives/management users require all the potential and high-end features for functioning but at the same time, the other set of user or general users only use the email platform. It is observed that the entire workforce is not making optimum use of the mailing & collaboration features.

Many organizations appreciate the concept of the Office 365 + Zimbra hybrid model, wherein the general users are migrated to non-office platform and share the same domain name.

In this way, using the hybrid mail solution, the organization derives the best Return on Investment.

How does the Hybrid Mail Solution work?

2. Logix Cloud Email ATP

Logix Cloud Email ATP provides all-round protection against all emerging and advanced threats with its multi-layered, multi-tiered Security approach.

3. Secure Email Routing

After scanning the incoming messages with Email ATP, the mail will be routed to the destination depending upon the mail host of the user viz. email for user-hosted on office 365/ Zimbra will get routed to office 365/ Zimbra platform respectively.

4. LDAP and AD Integration

Mail host is mentioned in the LDAP or Active directory with which email Advanced Threat Protection and Zimbra is integrated with. Basically, it is integrated with LDAP, but active directory integration is also possible.
