Sherpa Software Adds IM Archiving to File Attender 8.0

File Attender 8.0 Picks Up Where Email Management Tools Leave Off, Addressing Concerns of Unmanageable Data Spread Across Networks

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - Sherpa Software, a leading e-discovery and archiving software company, announced today the release of File Attender 8.0. The latest version of File Attender features added capabilities for archiving, managing and moving instant message conversations.

File Attender 8.0, a Lotus Notes-based file and IM management product, provides legal teams, human resource departments and administrators a way to secure previously unmanageable business information for compliance demands and discovery requests. With File Attender 8.0 users can move and archive IM logs off of the Domino Server to a centralized location while leaving behind a shortcut to locate/open the archived file.

File Attender 8.0 is compatible with instant messenger services Lotus Sametime, Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger, and AIM. With File Attender 8.0, users can collect a list of instant message files that exist, move or archive files to a secure location, delete unnecessary files, copy, and rename existing files. Users can also locate and target files based on content (ex. keywords) when used in conjunction with Sherpa Software's Discovery Attender for Notes.

"With the prevalence of instant messenger services now being used in the workplace, this is the logical next step for securing business information for compliance demands and discovery requests," says Kevin Ogrodnik, President of Sherpa Software. "Using File Attender 8.0 and Discovery Attender, companies can now quickly search, retrieve and archive data not only in email, but in instant message files as well."

File Attender 8.0 also includes new updates to the interface and user support items including an added task-oriented menu system to help in properly adding/updating necessary configuration documents.
