Microsoft has long been a dominant player in the enterprise email market and its product, Office 365 is rapidly become the cornerstone of the business. Office 365 now challenges Google’s leadership in cloud delivered email services. However, email suffers from lack of productivity, security, and infrastructure efficiency. These challenges are intrinsic to email itself and not specific to Microsoft. “The need of the hour is a powerful solution that improves how email functions for hosted service providers, end users, and businesses of all sizes. mxHero steps in to fill all these voids providing a unique cloud platform to empower businesses,” says Alexis Panagides, CEO, mxHero.
The company’s solution Mail2Cloud is an email and attachment management system that fully harnesses the power of existing cloud storage providers and email services to increase productivity, enhance data security, and reduce IT costs. mxHero enables users and businesses to better manage their email accounts by integrating email and cloud storage, bringing the benefits of cloud storage directly into the email paradigm.

The result was a hybrid technology that went beyond our best expectations,” explains Panagides.
The Mail2Cloud product suite offers multiple applications that integrate email and cloud storage in different and complimentary ways. Mail2Cloud’s Fusion application enhances attachment security by seamlessly moving email attachments out of unsecure email and into secure and compliant cloud storage services.
Another important application of mxHero is Mail2Cloud’s Save and Share that enables users to elevate important emails to document status in the cloud, converting the message into a PDF and saving any included attachments.

For instance, a leading electrical supply company adopted Mail2Cloud to solve the common problem of large emails coming into their networks. The company was facing challenges of poor bandwidth in remote areas for accessing, forwarding, and copying email content. Now when employees receive large emails, the Mail2Cloud platform automatically uploads all of the email attachments before delivery to the recipient.
Today, companies are facing new concerns with email – increased volume and size, lower productivity, virus, and security threats and global accessibility-mxHero is an early mover with regards to its approach of using a server side model for integration of cloud storage into enterprise email. “For the road ahead, we aim to accelerate the Mail2Cloud adoption, supporting more platforms and iterating features based on feedback from our users,” concludes Panagides.
