Sonian Announces Support for Microsoft Office 365, Positioning Sonian as the Only Archiving Provider to Support All Major Hosted Email Platforms

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered information archiving, today announced support for Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online. With the certification of Office 365, Sonian is now the only archiving provider with full support for Microsoft Office 365 (Exchange Online), IBM LotusLive Notes, Google Apps, and HostedEM (Hosted Groupwise).

Organizations that use hosted email services choose to archive their email with Sonian in order to satisfy regulatory and eDiscovery requirements while maintaining an independent, long-term repository for their critical business data. Sonian's archiving service is also unique in its support for hybrid email environments, providing customers with a single archive that can simultaneously collect information from multiple email systems -- whether on-premise or hosted -- and enable users to access that data from a single interface.

"More than ever, IT leaders view core email service as a commodity, and they are turning to Microsoft, IBM, Google, and others to take advantage of the economies of scale that these vendors can deliver," said Jeff Dickerson, Sonian CEO and President. "While email services are being commoditized, the information contained in email has never been more critical from a risk management, discovery, and compliance perspective, so organizations turning to Sonian to provide secure, unlimited storage and retrieval for that data."

Office 365 customers point to Sonian's real-time advanced search, granular legal hold, flexible export options, and support for other types of information (such as files, instant messaging, and social media) as compelling complements to Microsoft's hosted email service.

"Sonian was founded on the principle of serving as a trusted curator of unstructured data in the cloud," said Greg Arnette, Sonian CTO & Founder. "We are proud of the fact that thousands of hosted Exchange customers currently trust Sonian as their archiving provider, and we are eager to welcome Office 365 customers to that community."
