ZANTAZ Brings Centralized Content Archiving and Electronic Discovery to the Microsoft 2007 Infrastructure

ZANTAZ EAS 6 Facilitates Upgrades to New Microsoft Platform, Enhancements Ensure Better Preparation for Litigation and Regulatory Compliance

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Tech-Ed Conf. -- ZANTAZ, Inc., a global leader in content archiving and electronic discovery solutions, today announced the general availability of ZANTAZ Enterprise Archive Solution (EAS) 6 for the Microsoft 2007 generation of products. ZANTAZ EAS 6 ensures that enterprises upgrading to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2007, and Microsoft Internet Information Server 7.0 can continue to benefit from a scalable, centralized content archiving and discovery solution. ZANTAZ is featuring ZANTAZ EAS 6 at Microsoft's Tech-Ed event, June 4-8 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Booth #729.

ZANTAZ EAS 6, with its uniquely scalable architecture and with true enterprisewide single instance storage, drives down overall storage volumes by up to 90 percent while ensuring access to email messages, files, and SharePoint documents for regulatory compliance, electronic discovery, and knowledge management. The solution provides transparent and cost-effective access for end users, business officers, and legal professionals using the applications they know best, including Microsoft's new family of products such as Microsoft Outlook 2007, Windows Vista, the 2007 Microsoft Office System, Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2007, and Microsoft Windows Mobile handheld devices. Furthermore, ZANTAZ EAS 6 reduces the time and risk of an organization's migration from older Microsoft Exchange servers to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 by enabling administrators to offload data to the ZANTAZ EAS archive prior to the upgrade.

"The ZANTAZ EAS family of products builds upon the Microsoft platform to enable organizations to address today's critical compliance and electronic discovery requirements," said Robert Bernard, general manager, Developer and Platform Evangelism at Microsoft Corp. "The combination of Microsoft and ZANTAZ ensures that users get simplified management, rock-solid protection, and transparent access to email and files."

ZANTAZ EAS 6 includes the following enhancements:

--  Full integration with the Singlecast classification technology --
    purchased by ZANTAZ in December of 2006 -- to improve email monitoring and
    reduce the risk of corporate liability
    
--  Support for the Microsoft Exchange 2007 managed folders feature to
    provide organizations with an intuitive and interactive mechanism to
    classify messages and set retention periods that are transparently and
    automatically enforced within the archive
    
--  Support for the powerful new Microsoft Windows Desktop Search feature,
    enabling users to find and retrieve both live and archived content with a
    single full text query
    
--  Support for mobile users through Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2007 and
    handheld devices running Microsoft Windows Mobile or Palm OS
    
--  Transparent integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS)
    2007, including support for new features such as offline library access and
    enhanced records management
    
--  Ability to perform electronic discovery using both desktop and browser-
    based clients to meet the needs of geographically dispersed and multiple-
    party litigation teams.
    
"ZANTAZ has worked closely with Microsoft not only to deliver enhanced content archiving and electronic discovery capabilities to the 2007 platform, but also to make it easier for our customers to make the transition," said Bob Little, vice president of product marketing, ZANTAZ. "When ZANTAZ EAS customers upgrade to Microsoft's latest generation of solutions, they can do so quickly and without pain."
