E-mail Archiving Is a Vital Add-On for All Messaging Suites

A New Study by The Radicati Group Estimates That in Four Years 70% of Corporate Mailboxes Will Be Protected by Archiving Solutions

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 30, 2007 -- The latest study from The Radicati Group, "E-Mail Archiving Market, 2007-2011" provides market size, four-year forecasts, regional breakouts, as well as discusses legislative and technology issues of the archiving market. The study also provides an analysis of the leading archiving vendors and service providers.

E-mail archiving solutions offer interactive, long-term storage of e-mail. According to Radicati's research, in 2007 a typical corporate account would generate about 4.3 GB of electronic data per user/year, the majority of which companies will want to preserve for internal purposes. Archiving solutions are also essential for regulatory compliance. Without an archiving record of all relevant messages, regulated companies can be heavily penalized. Today, there is no good alternative to an interactive archiving solution to help companies properly store electronic messages.

In 2007, the worldwide percentage of corporate mailboxes protected by archiving solutions is estimated to be around 14%. It is expected that by 2011, it will grow to almost 70%.

According to the study, worldwide revenues for e-mail archiving vendors and service providers are expected to reach almost $1.3 billion in 2007, and grow to over $6 billion by 2011.
