Migrate from Office 365™ to Exchange

How to migrate from Office 365 to Exchange with confidence.

How to migrate from Office 365 to Exchange with confidence.

While Microsoft® Office 365™ offers many benefits to enterprises seeking a cloud email platform, there are instances when you may wish to migrate from Office 365 to Exchange. Acquisitions and mergers, new compliance requirements or a change in IT strategy may lead IT to decide that an on-premises email system holds more value for your organization.

But an Office 365 migration to an on-premises Exchange deployment carries significant risk. Email data in the cloud can easily be lost or corrupted in the transition. Security can be an issue as certain layers of defense are unavailable as you migrate from Office 365 to Exchange. And the inevitable downtime that occurs during migration can disrupt business operations and hinder user productivity.
