Commonly, the number one groupware solution of choice is Exchange and, essentially, it is very well integrated with Active Directory. However, the processes involved in creating, adjusting and deactivating mailboxes entail additional manual efforts, which in turn lead to an increased potential for risk.
tenfold offers administrative advantages for both on-premise, as well as for Hybrid Cloud environments, in combination with Office 365. For instance, mailboxes can be created automatically in the user process and there are policies that can be used to determine the correct mailbox database and remote settings. If an employee leaves the organization, tenfold automatically ensures that their mailbox is properly archived.
With Exchange, you can set detailed access rights for entire mailboxes and for individual mailbox folders. This is often necessary for shared mailboxes and calendar folders. Unfortunately, this also poses similar challenges as for file servers.
With its user-friendly features, tenfold allows you to analyze effective Exchange permissions at user level and according to best practices.
