The case for on-premise email platforms

Data protection concerns suggest that many firms must reconsider the on-premise option for email marketing. Important though they are, delivery, automation and relevance must never play second-fiddle to data security.

There are a number of factors that make your subscriber data vulnerable to malicious attack: One factor is outsourcing your email marketing to a firm with limited understanding of data protection matters. Taking email in-house removes the opportunity for attackers to target you.

A second factor is that the vendors' internal data security policies may not be as robust as yours or pass external regulation standards: On-premise assures your subscribers that their information is treated with the same respect and care as your mission-critical systems. By implementing an on-premise solution, sensitive customer data can remain in your secure internal databases helping legal compliance and regulation.

A third factor is the company you keep: An email vendor with 1m clients is a target for attackers. The very opposite of safety in numbers.

Whilst managing your email marketing on-premise eliminates these vulnerabilities, not all companies believe they have the resources or expertise to bring it in-house. On-premise email marketing no longer requires significant technical resources to manage the system, and we can provide brands with full strategic, creative, production and deliverability services as needed.
