  • Security is another major concern of users as their accounts can be attacked by viruses, Trojan horse, ransomware leaving their crucial data vulnerable to corruption or inaccessible. So to avoid these problems, they want to keep their emails safe and secure by converting them into PDF.
  • Office 365 is hard to customize and many big organizations need flexible software so as to meet their specific business requirements, which Office 365 fails to provide.
