Instant InfoSystems Evaluates Leading Email Archiving Solutions; IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™ Presents a Side-by-Side Comparison of Features and Functionality

IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™ Will Reduce the Time Organizations Need to Invest to Identify the Right Email Archiving Solution for Their Specific Requirements

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - Instant InfoSystems (IIS), a leading provider of Enterprise Message Management solutions including Email Archiving and Enterprise Fax Management to Fortune 1000 companies and enterprises nationwide, today announced the release of the IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™. The objective of the scorecard is to help clients identify the right email archiving product for their specific environment.

Today, organizations are faced with managing large volumes of electronic data while ensuring effective and timely discovery during litigation. Email archiving solutions offer a broad range of capabilities to address growing concerns and requirements for risk management, e-discovery, regulatory compliance and message management. The challenge is to identify the product that best fits an organization's specific requirements. There are various products to choose from and many features to evaluate. This is where the IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™ can help.

Instant InfoSystems has evaluated 6 key functionalities and scored 264 subcategories. Solutions evaluated include Enterprise Archive Solution 6.1 from Autonomy ZANTAZ, exchange@PAM 3.1000 from H&S, Nearpoint from Mimosa, Enterprise Vault 2007 from Symantec and Unified Archival Suite 5.2 from ZL Technologies. The IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™ reveals how the leading email archiving solutions stack up in a side-by-side comparison of key functionality including archive processing, architecture, discovery, case management, compliance and user interface. An important point to note is that the IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™ does not give an overall rank to each of the products. The more important comparison is how these products score in features and functionality specific to an organization's requirements. Therefore, the products are scored on a feature by feature basis in the IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™.

David Klein, CEO of Instant InfoSystems, says, "IIS has developed experience and expertise in the enterprise message management space since 1993. We have been involved in helping enterprises identify the right email archiving product for their specific environment since 2005." He further added, "The IIS Email Archiving Scorecard™ will reduce the time organizations need to invest in deciding which email archiving solution is right for their specific requirements. IIS can help clients identify the right solution by asking the right questions and identifying the features and functionality important for their specific environment."

Instant InfoSystems has been selected as a speaker for the AIIM International Exposition & Conference at the Boston Convention & Exposition Center, March 3-6, 2008. Instant InfoSystems will be speaking on the topic, "Which Email Archiving Solution is Right for you? A Complete Feature Analysis of Leading Solutions" in Room 151A at 2:30 pm on March 5, 2008. Instant InfoSystems is also participating as an exhibitor in Booth # 2155.
