I wonder what your take on that. I have a small CPA firm (15users) and sounds like they live in the fantasy world. They want 100% guarantee that no financial information will leave their office and go out to the internet? That is their standard. They have numerous international clients and they market their services as "impossible" to hack into the system and get client data. They think if Hosts go out of business and there goes their information. They want to maintain control of all our information and data etc etc. Even the backup is done there on site and then she/he carry it to a safe place off site. They dont even do blackberries or activesync outside for security reasons.
So the putting an Exchange 2010 in house, vmware, hardware, backups, and so on. Pretty Expensive setup for 15people firm. I agree it is more secure in-house. However, don't the hosting companies guarantee the security and so on?
What do you guys think of that?
