Overall Rating: 6.6 / 10 (Very good)

Alentus Hosted Exchange is held back by its limited offerings. Between its decade-old software support, lack of an unlimited storage option, and poor security and integration options, this company’s service comes off as decidedly opaque. This is further compounded by its lack of online reviews and external certifications. By and large, while Alentus may provide a fine service, the comparative lack of information and substance may turn off potential customers.

While Alentus has maintained an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau since 1997, there are no reviews to support it. This, along with an absence from TrustPilot, makes it difficult to judge their reputation.
