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
