08 May MailFoundry introduces new e-mail archive product
Green Bay, Wis — E-mail archive products originally were a response to compliance issues, but they have become much more.
Businesses large and small now are using e-mail archives as tactical tools to address human resource issues, customer-relations management, and data recovery in the event of a lost laptop or a crashed hard drive.
With their multi-faceted functionality clearly established, a Green Bay e-mail security and management solutions company has introduced an e-mail archive product that it bills as the first all-in-one e-mail archive appliance starting under $2,000. MailFoundry, which exhibited last week at Interop Las Vegas 2006, has introduced MailFoundry Archive, an enterprise-class, e-mail archive system with search and recovery tools.
First and foremost, the company attempted to design an appliance to handle the increasing concerns surrounding e-mail management and compliance with laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), and other regulations. The product, compatible with all e-mail systems, also features offsite backup for what the company called “limitless” storage and disaster-recovery, and captures e-mail traffic in real time.
With this product, David C. Troup, founder and CEO of MailFoundry, claims that clients no longer will have to wonder whether their e-mail is instantly searchable and recoverable. “This is a landmark product for those who need to not only archive their e-mail, but also have a realtime backup of their communications with the benefits of offsite disaster recovery,” Troup said.
Of the company’s three available archive appliance models, only the 1500, which is recommended for up to 100 users, starts at under $2,000 ($1,999). The other models include Archive 2500, which is recommended for up to 400 users, and Archive 3500, which is recommended for up to 1,000 users.
