GFI releases GFI MailArchiver 4 – easy and powerful email archiving for SMBs

  • 05 December, 2006 21:26

<p>The new version can archive directly to an NTFS drive, saving the cost of an MS SQL server licence, ideal for customers with a limited budget for email archiving</p>
<p>GFI, a leading provider of network security, content security and messaging software today releases GFI MailArchiver 4. GFI’s latest update to its email archiving solution is designed to bring affordable email archiving to any sized company; it allows archiving directly to an NTFS drive, removing the expense of purchasing a license for an MS SQL server. GFI MailArchiver also features new email retention policies and a ‘Saved Search’ function that allows individual users to save their search requests for repeated use. With GFI MailArchiver 4, businesses of all sizes are able to heavily reduce reliance on cumbersome PST files and ensure central archiving of all company email, also in-keeping with compliance and legal requirements.</p>
<p>Email archiving is increasingly important for businesses in the UK and across Europe – it has been estimated that over 50% of company records exist only in email format. If this is true, then over half of a company's records do not sit in any formally controlled records system. With an increasing burden of compliance falling on businesses, and with high profile cases demonstrating a failure to comply, getting to grips with the way emails are identified and stored is of paramount importance. When it comes to implementing an email system there is a clear message: email forms part of record keeping systems and legislation dictates that records must be stored and email must be archived efficiently.</p>
<p>“Companies of all sizes and virtually every industry fall under government regulations that include data retention provisions,” said Michael Osterman, principal partner and analyst of Osterman Research. “Relying on backup tapes without an archiving system to manage the data can make recalling important documents very time consuming and costly for a company.”</p>
<p>GFI MailArchiver 4 is easier to install, and easier to use. New features also include the ability to search within various types of email attachments such as MS Word, MS Excel, PDF files, OpenOffice, WordPerfect and others. It also incorporates flexible email access control through Active Directory integration which allows configured users to access other users’ archived emails. For example, GFI MailArchiver can be configured to allow a departmental manager to access all his team’s email, for QoS and other reasons.</p>
<p>“GFI MailArchiver 4 provides a transparent installation process with no disruption to workflow. A separate MS SQL server license is not required either, making email archiving affordable to all companies.” said David Vella, GFI Product Manager. “With GFI MailArchiver you can eliminate dependency on cumbersome PST files, heavily reducing time spent by administrators backing up and fixing PST files.”</p>
<p>GFI MailArchiver 4 features a multi-lingual end-user interface and is available in German, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Russian and Czech. The solution is available now via GFI’s global network of authorised resellers.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
