DEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sonian, an early innovator in cloud-based archiving, today announced that it has entered into a reseller agreement with Colt, an established leader in delivering integrated computing and network services to major organizations, midsized businesses and wholesale customers. Colt will leverage its extensive network of channel partners to offer Sonian’s proven and cost-effective data preservation and presentation platforms to its customers throughout Europe.
Sonian’s groundbreaking cloud reference architecture enables legal, IT, audit and line-of-business users in small to medium sized organizations to search, analyze and manage the storage of millions of email communications (and more than 500 attachment types). Organizations can now uncover actionable intelligence for more informed discovery, faster audit response, internal early case assessment, improved regulatory compliance and data management.
“Sonian continues to focus on channel growth, and the addition of Colt to our family of global partners is certainly gratifying,” said Jeff Dickerson, CEO at Sonian. “This partnership further validates our solution and our ability to seamlessly integrate with world-class resellers, in addition to presenting an unrivaled opportunity to expand our reach across Europe. We look forward to working with Colt and its many reseller partners to communicate the value of cloud archiving to more and more enterprises.”
Data preservation has long been a business concern, but the growing recognition that email embodies corporate intellectual property is driving many end users to “get beyond backup” and create secure, scalable and affordable cloud repositories for all email communications and attachments. These data stores can then be leveraged to provide valuable business insight. In addition, email archiving can reduce messaging server workloads and eliminate the need to purchase additional storage hardware. As end users begin to avail themselves of their own archive, they can restore accidentally deleted or lost mail without assistance from IT, reducing support call volumes. Affordably-priced, based on fixed monthly per-mailbox costs, cloud archiving is quickly gaining popularity among small to medium sized companies with few IT resources, as well as large global enterprises looking to secure their communications and limit liability and loss of intellectual property.
An early innovator in cloud-based archiving, Sonian preserves, protects and presents the world’s information. More than 16,000 customers in 40 countries trust Sonian’s secure platform and fast and accurate search to retain and retrieve valuable data and to protect the intellectual property in business email. Sonian manages more than 20 billion objects in the cloud; every day, 17 million new documents are uploaded to Sonian’s cloud archives, which can run on any of the world’s five largest public clouds. Boasting strong partnerships with the world’s leading technology companies, Sonian combines innovative technology with deep archiving expertise to satisfy customers of all sizes and industries.
