Sonian Announces Acquisition of Webroot's Email Archiving Business

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 19, 2012) - Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered archiving and search, today announced the acquisition of Webroot's Email Archiving business. The agreement transitions Webroot customers and prospective customers of their Email Archiving business over to Sonian.

Today's announcement extends Sonian's customer base of over 9,000 customers and 4 billion objects and builds upon the already successful investor and partner relationship between Sonian and Webroot. With a new EMEA office in the UK, and the addition of new partnerships in Asia Pacific, Sonian will work closely with Webroot's existing partner channels to deliver world-class archiving to their users.

"As the archiving market continues to expand, Sonian recognized this acquisition as a significant benefit for not only Webroot and Sonian, but also our channels and customers alike," said Jeff Dickerson, CEO of Sonian. "By being able to interact directly with our new partners and customers, we can offer them the cloud and archiving strategies they need to continue driving down storage costs, fulfilling discovery requests, and expanding their archiving footprint beyond email to file archiving and social media. Most importantly, we look forward to working with our new channel partners to make the delivery and transition of the agreement as frictionless as possible."

"Webroot has cultivated an extremely strong relationship with Sonian over the past two years as our partner in archiving services," said Dick Williams, CEO, Webroot. "We believe the future of Internet security lies in endpoint, web and mobile protection against today's sophisticated web-based threats. As Webroot focuses our development efforts on solutions in these areas, I cannot think of a better provider than Sonian to assume leadership of our archiving business and ensure our customers continue to receive the highest level of service and support."

This acquisition solidifies Sonian's leadership as the leading provider of cloud-powered archiving and search. With a worldwide presence, 24/7/365 support, a channel centric delivery model and the first cloud-powered file archiving service, Sonian looks forward to working with its partners, new and old, to deliver the next generation of enterprise archiving.
