Ipswitch IMail Server Announces Two New Email Archival Solutions

AUGUSTA, GA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Ipswitch Messaging Division, a leading developer of messaging solutions, today introduced MailArchiva and Sonian Hosted Archival Systems, two solutions to email archival. MailArchiva is an installed email archiving system for companies of all sizes. It works in conjunction with the award-winning IMail Server to archive all incoming, outgoing and internal emails. Sonian Hosted Archival Systems is Ipswitch's archival solution for the industry that requires a hosted provider. Sonian, an archiving technology pioneer, provides an affordable, scalable, reliable and secure hosted email archiving service for organizations of all sizes.

Companies' dependency on email is a driving force behind the growth experienced in email archiving over the past few years. From a legal perspective, email data is subject to numerous regulations for protecting data which require rapid retrieval and longer retention periods. Practical considerations for archiving address a number of operational concerns such as escalating capacity on email servers.

"MailArchiva and Sonian Hosted Archival Systems enable businesses to implement sound archiving policies by reliably storing data in support of quick access for discovery and accountability purposes," said Tripp Allen, president of Ipswitch Messaging Division. "In an era where regulatory compliance and storage maintenance requirements demand proper risk management procedures, it is necessary for businesses to understand and implement secure solutions that address legislative issues as well as assist IT Departments with storage and capacity concerns."

Simple Administration

MailArchiva enables a clean install that typically takes 30 minutes, provides storage for all incoming, outgoing and internal email, and enables compliance with US and EU legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Emails are stored directly on the filesystem, as opposed to a database and all data is searchable at all times. Our overall focus is to provide a cost-effective, dependable, scalable and secure result for management of messaging-related storage.

Sonian Hosted Archival Systems is available for organizations of all sizes. With ultra-reliable grid utility storage and elastic virtual computing resources with modern "Web 2.0" technology and design methodologies, Sonian offers unlimited storage capacity. The Sonian Archive system is designed to accommodate both compliance archiving as well as storage resource management. With Sonian, there are never any hidden fees and all subscription plans include unlimited storage. Sonian user interfaces are intuitive for all skill levels. Online self-service training videos guide users through all tasks.
