Axway Enables Organizations to Meet Email Retention and E-Discovery Demands with Secure Cloud-Based Email Archiving
Maintenance-Free Solution Offers 99.99 Percent Uptime, Infinite Scalability, Low Fixed Cost and Multiple Layers of Encryption
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axway, the Business Interaction Networks company, today introduced Axway Archiving, a cloud-based email archiving solution. Axway Archiving leverages cloud computing to eliminate the need for on-premise hardware, software and storage infrastructure. This approach enables Axway to offer unlimited email archiving storage at a low, fixed price for any messaging platform, regardless of size.
“Growth in email storage is the leading problem in managing messaging systems. Organizations of every size and in every industry should develop detailed records retention policies, develop enforcement mechanisms for those policies, and deploy systems that will enable just that”
Archiving is necessary to comply with e-discovery requests, to better manage mail servers and to meet corporate and industry mandates the world over. Regulations ranging from Canada’s Universal Market Integrity Rules to France’s Conseil des Marches Financiers’ Decision 99-05 to the United States’ Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) 17A-4 and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) mandates, all force corporations to retain emails, regardless of country or location.
Archiving solutions to date have imposed hard-to-predict storage costs that increase as email stores expand, requiring significant on-premise technology management ─ even in software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings and labor-intensive message migration.
For these reasons, Axway has embraced a secure cloud model that archives, stores and retrieves email communications without needing to purchase or manage additional archiving hardware or software. This hybrid model, complementing email servers already on-premise, frees up IT resources previously committed to managing appliances. Moreover, Axway Archiving automates maintenance, liberating IT from testing, managing and rolling out upgrades. Axway’s approach, including a 99.99 percent uptime service level agreement (SLA), results in improved server performance, faster delivery times, faster back-up recovery and reductions in time spent managing mailbox quota limits.
“Growth in email storage is the leading problem in managing messaging systems. Organizations of every size and in every industry should develop detailed records retention policies, develop enforcement mechanisms for those policies, and deploy systems that will enable just that,” said Michael Osterman, principal of Osterman Research. “Further, implementing an archiving solution is not a low priority that can be deployed when budget is available – it is a necessary function of businesses today.”
Axway Archiving provides the following benefits:
“Flexible, cloud-based email archiving is essential to effective information management due to unavoidable compliance with legal requests and industry regulations,” said Christophe Fabre, CEO of Axway. “Axway Archiving represents the next step in Axway’s cloud strategy, and furthers the effectiveness of Business Interaction Networks in accelerating business and eliminating multi-enterprise barriers.”
