What Are the Differences Between the E3 Plan and the Midmarket Bundle?
When the Midmarket Bundle is purchased as a license:
- Must be paid for one year upfront
- Cannot add other products (archiving for example to the product). Without this, a user would not be able to placed on legal hold – which I think it required functionality for most clients
When the Midmarket Bundle is purchased directly through the portal:
- Can pay monthly and can add other products
Differences between Midmarket bundled purchased via the portal and the E3 plans:
- E3 adds the Data Loss Prevention
- E3 adds unlimited archiving and legal hold
- E3 Office can be deployed with push methods – like group policy deployment or system center, midmarket can only be downloaded by each individual client
- Rights management – internal controls of what other users can do with the senders email is only available in E3
- Support for midmarket is business hours only versus 24x7
- Midmarket is limited to a maximum of 300 users
- Midsize options do NOT qualify for the on-premise use rights like E plans. So, all workloads would need to be run in the cloud with the Midmarket licensing
