MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - Intermedia, the global leader in cloud services and the world's largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, has enhanced its Office in the Cloud™ suite of hosted IT services with legally compliant email archiving capabilities. The new Email Archiving service gives Intermedia customers enterprise-grade preservation, protection and recovery tools that meet their regulatory compliance, eDiscovery and intellectual property protection needs. Intermedia currently powers nearly 600,000 premium hosted Microsoft Exchange mailboxes for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) around the world.
"Compliant Email Archiving adds protection against legal and regulatory issues beyond the data security, backup and reliability levels for which Intermedia is already known," explained Michael Gold, President Intermedia. "Our cloud already assures business continuity for all of our customers. Email Archiving adds to that by storing emails in a tamper-proof archive so they are formally admissible as evidence, compliant with industry regulations, and protected against accidental or intentional deletion by employees."
Intermedia's new Email Archiving service is an easily manageable, flexible and cost-efficient way for SMBs to ensure that every single email -- as well as more than 450 types of file attachments -- is archived, searchable and immediately retrievable, forever. For businesses in the healthcare, financial and legal industries, it offers compliance with FERPA, FRCP, SOX, SEC, HIPAA and other state and federal rules that require email archiving.
"One of my customers suffered a major intellectual property leak," said Alfredo Canonico, senior engineer at Better Technology Systems, Inc., an Intermedia Silver Partner. "They didn't have Email Archiving at the time, which made it nearly impossible to assess the scope of the damage and hampered their ability to take action. Today, with Intermedia's Email Archiving capturing every email, they are better prepared to address any future issues and eDiscovery needs."
Expanding Intermedia's Office in the Cloud Suite
Email Archiving is the newest service in Intermedia's Office in the Cloud suite, which offers a one-stop shop for all of the essential IT functions SMBs need to communicate, collaborate, manage content and run their business applications. The Office in the Cloud also includes hosted Microsoft Exchange, Lync and SharePoint, as well as Intermedia's proprietary Hosted PBX and Cloud Server.
All of Intermedia's services can be managed seamlessly through its market-leading HostPilot Control Panel, which centralizes and simplifies management while offering on-premise levels of control. Intermedia's enterprise-grade infrastructure reliability, white-glove migration services and 24/7 phone and email support give its customers a worry-free cloud experience.
Intermedia has more than 12,000 channel partners around the world that will be able to offer the new Email Archiving service to their customers. Partners can resell Intermedia's service directly or in a white-label capacity that lets them bundle their managed services, own their customer relationships, manage their billing and build their own brand.
"Intermedia's Email Archiving is the easiest add-on we sell," said Better Technology Systems' Alfredo Canonico. "Not just because it's easy to deploy, but because it delivers powerful compliance and protection benefits that every customer can recognize and appreciate."
To celebrate the launch of its new Email Archiving service, Intermedia is offering customers introductory pricing of 30 percent off the list price for a limited time plus the first 30 days free. For partners, Intermedia is offering the archiving solution for free for the first 30 days. Intermedia is also waiving the data migration fee, valued at $15 per GB of data, for both partners and customers who sign-up before June 30, 2013.
