Sonasoft Corp. has launched its SonaSafe email archiving solution for Microsoft Exchange server.
The new offering is said to be an affordable and easy to use solution specifically designed for addressing the pain points of SMB customers.
Email has been growing at the rate of 40% every year and managing emails has become very complex. Microsoft Exchange Server is not only being used as an email server, it is also being used as document repository and management system. Businesses are being increasingly asked to retrieve emails during litigation. Also Companies need to comply with regulatory compliance requirements like Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. According to Sarbanes-Oxley, public companies must keep all documents and communications for seven years following an audit. The penalties for destroying or altering a document can include fines up to $5 million and imprisonment for up to 20 years. Hence, Email is becoming Achilles Heel of document and records management.
Sonasoft's SonaSafe solution for email archiving is designed to meet regulatory compliance and eDiscovery needs of organizations. SonaSafe will capture all incoming, outgoing and internal emails and store them in archive databases as a Single Instance Store (SIS). Also, by use of "stubbing", message contents including attachments will be saved in the archive database and leaves behind an empty shell of the message, namely "stub" in the body of the email. This approach will reduce the size of the Exchange server by up to 90%. SonaSafe Email Archiving solution supports Exchange Server 2000, 2003 and 2007.
"I began using the SonaSafe archive product while in beta because my experience with Sonasoft's Exchange and SQL backup/failover/DR products has been stellar and expected the same from the archive product. I can now safely say that I have been in no way disappointed with SonaSafe for Email Archiving for the same reasons that impressed me with their original product suite: it's stable, easy to install and configure, administration is straightforward and the program does not place undue strain on the Exchange server. Plus support is top notch - if you need it, done they do it quickly and efficiently. Once again Sonasoft comes in a fantastic price point. Compared to other products SonaSafe for Email Archiving is the clear choice for my organization. Thanks to the entire team at Sonasoft for another great product" Nick Fitzpatrick, Network Manager, Laughlin, Falbo, Levy & Moresi LLP.
