Messaging Architects Launches Email Compliance & Security Bundle for Small- and Mid-Size Organizations

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - Messaging Architects announced today the availability of a new Email Compliance & Security SMB Bundle to help smaller organizations deal with email retention, security and compliance challenges. The SMB bundle is an all-in-one package of software, hardware and services especially designed to improve the email security and archiving capabilities of Novell GroupWise targeting small- and medium-size organizations with 100 or more email users.

The uniqueness of the Security and Compliance Bundle, currently available to Messaging Architects clients in North America, is that it combines hardware, software, services and training. M+Guardian integrates cutting-edge multi-layered anti-spam technology with state-of-the-art virus protection, adaptive reputation filters for outbound scanning and granular security policies on a single hardened appliance. Positioned for the second consecutive year in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Email Active Archiving, GWArchive offers complete Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) for electronic records stored in corporate messaging systems and solves the issues of e-Discovery, compliance, auditing, storage, and uptime based on an advanced policy-based eDirectory-enabled engine to automatically manage electronic data. GWExtranet is a powerful application that dynamically web publishes information stored in GroupWise. GWTreecast is a Shared Folders management solution for GroupWise that integrates with eDirectory and requires no end-user intervention. The services element is delivered through the Messaging Architects' network of certified partners and should provide a valuable resource to organizations that do not have the expertise to implement a solution on their own or cannot afford the cost of buying in services. At the same time, it also enables them to improve their existing messaging environments and gain valuable insights on designing and implementing a comprehensive corporate email policy to drive future email management.

"In many technology areas, the SMB market is frequently at a disadvantage insofar as email management and security are concerned since larger organizations tend to benefit from a lower cost per seat for anti-virus, anti-spam and archiving. Moreover, it can be difficult for smaller organizations to afford the cost of implementing several products to create an end-to-end solution, both in terms of the licenses and the resources required to manage and maintain such a solution," explains Charles Nguyen, VP of Sales at Messaging Architects. "Often organizations are unaware of issues that can arise with the ever-growing volume of email and end up having to either introduce mailbox quotas or continually add extra storage resources, resulting in unmanageable email systems whose high availability is also compromised. The rationale for the Security and Compliance SMB Bundle from Messaging Architects was to allow smaller organizations and local government agencies to benefit from our best-in-class technology for email security and archiving in attaining their business goals, meeting regulatory obligations with respect to records retention and being proactive against the risks and costs of future legal discovery at a price any organization can afford."


The Email Compliance & Security SMB Bundle is offered at the unbeatable price of $5,995 for 2 years / $8,495 for 3 years per 100 users, and includes the following components:

--  M+Guardian Linux-based Email Security Appliance
--  GWArchive Email Retention and Compliance Solution for GroupWise
--  GWTreecast and GWExtranet
--  Personalized product training
--  24 x 7 Emergency Customer Support
