The communication tool (Hosted Exchange) par excellence for your company, under legislation and hosted in Switzerland.

If you do not wish to operate your own Exchange messaging infrastructure in-house, and if it is important for your company that all e-mail data is stored in Switzerland. Our Hosted exchange solution is made for you, we offer you the following services:


Built-in protection against spam and viruses, as a Hosted Exchange® client, you are protected against viruses and spam when communicating via email. Harmful content is filtered by our Virus and Spam Filter Solution for Microsoft Exchange service, which includes the following features:


  • 0-day malware via sandboxing technologies
  • Multiple antivirus (ESET, ClamAV, BitDefender)
  • Defense against phishing
  • Protection against identity theft (spoofing)


For customers, not wishing to use sandboxing technologies transiting through an EU datacenter, it is possible to disable them.


Sandboxing technologies are designed to analyse only files of a potentially harmful nature that come from e-mail or can be downloaded via a URL link. These files are then individually executed on isolated Windows environments (Sand Box) identical to your computer. The analysis result allows the identification of infected or malicious files before an Antivirus signature is available on the market.


As an EVOK Hosted Exchange® customer, you receive access to our Helpdesk (direct access to a technician) during working hours for any problems related to the messaging solution. All incident services or configuration assistance directly related to EVOK Hosted Exchange are included in the service contract. These services are not included in this contract and will be invoiced separately: Configuration interventions, modifications on workstations or mobile phones. A secure self-service management interface is available for all changes, password initialization, redirections, e-mail forwarding and other functions; if required, our Helpdesk is at your disposal.
