AppRiver has made available its Digital Disaster Preparedness Program, a service designed to protect and preserve email traffic, free to those organizations facing imminent natural disasters such as a hurricanes or flooding.
"This service was designed to protect business email during an outage and help companies get up and running again as quickly as possible," said Michael Murdoch, CEO, AppRiver. "Email is critical and a business shouldn’t have to lose important messages even in the midst of a natural disaster."
So what exactly is the Digital Disaster Program? The cloud-based service averts email downtime by redirecting an organization’s email to one of AppRiver's secure data centers in the event of a natural catastrophe. Once the danger passes and connectivity is restored, AppRiver will forward all outage-period email back to the company's server, free of charge.
Florida knows the impact of catastrophic weather all too well – the impact on families and businesses can be devastating. Recent Tropical Storm Arthur created difficulties for businesses across the entire southeast coast. Earlier this year, flooding in Florida’s Panhandle also saw businesses facing severe issues with work continuity.
“A program like AppRiver’s can revolutionize a business’ ability to prepare for a storm,” said Blake Gehres, Chief Technology Officer of the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “We know all too well what a storm means for our state – lost jobs, sometimes lost lives, damaged property and more. AppRiver’s program allows businesses the ability to take one more step to ensure business continuity.”
Registration is simple and typically takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Businesses simply contact AppRiver to receive step-by-step instructions for redirecting their email to AppRiver's secure servers. Almost immediately thereafter, AppRiver will begin monitoring the company`s server activity. When AppRiver detects a loss in connectivity with the email server, its service will begin queuing the business' incoming messages in one of its own securely located data centers until the participant’s servers are able to receive email again. For this reason, many companies have come to view this free service as an essential item on their disaster preparation checklist.
“We are very proud of our partnership with AppRiver,” said Gehres. “Their innovation has helped many Florida businesses and Chambers like us and we encourage everyone to look into their program. It can make a difference when it matters the most.”
