Senior officers at banks and credit unions credit the advent of hosted email services as a key innovation that’s positively affected their professional lives in recent years. Particularly when those services are tailored for the specific regulatory and security needs unique to the financial services industry.
To that end, bankers have voted Safe Systems’ hosted email solution — SafeSysMail — as the best consulting/outsourcing/training solution in the 2013 BankNews Innovative Solutions Awards. It’s the third BankNews Innovative Solutions Award for Safe Systems cloud services; the Continuum system replication and recovery service has won twice.
Cloud services in general have revolutionized aspects of banking IT over the past several years. Much like service bureaus before them, these virtualized solutions are popular among financial institutions that seek to consolidate servers, provide scalable services or efficiently replicate data in the event of a disaster. They’re also seen as a cost-saving measure, both in terms of hardware and staff expertise needed to deploy these services — management is often outsourced to the service provider.
