Before Hurricane Rita made landfall, AppRiver, a Gulf Breeze, Fla. provider of business email security solutions, offered companies in the path of Hurricane Rita a free service to protect and preserve email traffic in case their servers were affected by the impact of the storm.
“In the digital age, lost email can mean lost customers, lost revenue and lost opportunities,” Michael Murdoch, AppRiver CEO. “We have seen the effects of lost email by businesses in our community and offered protection to other companies that may be especially vulnerable to the effects of Rita.”
Murdoch said AppRiver will held a copy of all incoming email until the storm passed and the company’s email servers were functioning. This limited service is available to businesses that have an Internet domain name.
To access the free service, businesses visited AppRiver’s website, www.AppRiver.com, and clicked the button marked “Free Emergency Email Protection” at the top of the screen. Users were guided through a simple process from that point. Or, businesses could call AppRiver for assistance.
