Tougher Regulations are Driving E-mail Archiving Deployments

A New Study by The Radicati Group Shows That 28% of All E-mail Archiving Deployments Are Driven by an Increased Need to Comply With Government Regulations

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 6, 2005 -- The latest study, "E-Mail Archiving Market, 2005-2009," provides market size, four-year forecasts, legislative and competitive information, as well as customer survey results for the e-mail archiving market.

E-mail archiving solutions offer tamper-proof, long-term storage of e-mail with easy search and retrieval capabilities. Unlike traditional storage methods, e-mail archiving solutions are interactive, enabling authorized users to access, search, and retrieve archived messages at any time in a matter of seconds.

Besides enabling companies to better cope with the growing volume of messages, e-mail archiving solutions are indispensable in helping companies comply with government regulations, such as SEC 17a-4, HIPAA, NASD 3010, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and others that require companies to preserve all relevant electronic messages in their original form.

Archiving solutions also address the issue of internal policy compliance, to help prevent sensitive, or other undesirable information from being distributed to unauthorized users, and to ensure that all employees adhere to the established electronic communication rules.

The study shows that the e-mail archiving market is moving towards becoming a part of a larger corporate security market through mergers and acquisitions between pure-play, security, and storage companies.

According to the study, revenues for e-mail archiving vendors are expected to approach $465 million by 2005, and grow to over $4.4 billion by 2009.
