- Providing your mobile workforce with access to their email from anywhere
- Getting faster updates for enhanced functionality and security
- Managing your licenses and deployment more efficiently
The contract has a two- year base period with three 1-year options and covers all federal, state, local and tribal governments to have access to cloud email services.
