Intermedia Named Top Player in Microsoft Hosted Exchange by Analyst Firm The Radicati Group


Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, was named “Top Player” in the 2012 Microsoft Hosted Exchange Market Quadrant report by analyst firm The Radicati Group.

The Radicati Group compared Intermedia’s integrated, turn-key cloud platform with those offered by other competitors in the hosted email category. Intermedia’s hosted Exchange solution placed as “Top Player” – the highest ranking.

“The report is a competitive analysis of the hosted business email market in North America and we are pleased to see Intermedia rank so highly,” says Sara Radicati, president & CEO, The Radicati Group. “Intermedia is one of the largest and fastest growing Microsoft hosted Exchange providers, and offers a full range of services, including email, instant messaging (IM), document management, backup, mobility, Hosted VoIP, and Unified Communications (UC). Intermedia has a solid line of offerings to target the SMB market that scale from a relatively basic plan to much more sophisticated offerings with email encryption and other advanced features. Intermedia also has a strong development team, which helps it to quickly rollout new solutions and features. For customers and partners who required a high level of expert support Intermedia stands out.”

Intermedia brings Fortune 50-level IT services to small and medium-sized businesses, giving them the tools and resources to compete like much larger enterprises.  The company’s Office in the Cloud™ offering combines Intermedia’s services for backup, mobility, security, voice and more, with popular Microsoft services such as Exchange, Lync and SharePoint. This integrated suite of cloud communications and collaboration services is managed from Intermedia’s proprietary HostPilot® Control Panel, providing customers a single point of communications control in an intuitive user interface. The company also recently launched Windows Mobile apps for its HostPilot Control Panel and Partner Portal, and now supports all mobile platforms, including iOS, BlackBerry and Android.
