NEWTOWN, Pa., Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 4ward, an industry-leading Microsoft Office 365 IT services company, announced today its 4ward365 SaaS solution now allows Office 365 clients to report against their hybrid Exchange and Active Directory environments using a single interface to access and aggregate enterprise-wide information. Instead of using separate information streams to audit and report on multiple data points within their hybrid environment, 4ward clients can now access a single interface that provides an aggregate of enterprise information and allows for enhanced Office 365 business intelligence.
Office 365 clients must adhere to a variety of business requirements, including specific industry regulations, security requirements, user concerns, geographic-based issues, and other parameters. These requirements have led to an increased number of companies with hybrid Office 365 environments, running both on-premises and cloud-based versions of Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory applications. The siloed nature of these applications means a single point of failure is more difficult to identify, and a single point of reporting is also a challenge. 4ward clients can now access a single interface for their hybrid environments, allowing a single "point of information" for administrators to more efficiently manage their Office 365 environments.
Carl Baumann, CEO of 4ward USA, states, "4ward continues to respond to the demands of our Office 365 clients. We recognized that IT teams want to access a single point of information for their hybrid environments. Our 4ward365 solution stands alone in offering hybrid Office 365 clients a single interface for assessing critical user data, which enhances the value of their IT investment."
Currently, hybrid Office 365 environments must manage, monitor, audit, and report on data points for their on-premises applications and their cloud-based applications, usually using different products and then aggregating the information to gain an enterprise-wide view. 4ward365 now allows IT administrators a single interface for Exchange and Active Directory applications, allowing for local control, more efficient information streams, and added insight into their company's Office 365 platform.
Val Vasquez, 4ward USA Principal Solution Architect, states, "Hybrid Office 365 environments are definitely a challenge to manage – an IT administrator's focus is always going to be split between managing the finer points of on-premises and cloud-based applications. With 4ward365, the ability to access information with a single online console for a hybrid Office 365 environment is invaluable."
Enterprise clients across the globe can now take advantage of this integrated offering for their hybrid Office 365 environments.
