Securities And Exchange Commission (SEC) Chooses EMC For E-Mail Management



HOPKINTON, Mass. – 16 April, 2004 – EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, announced today that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the United States regulator of the securities markets, selected EMC and its LEGATO Software division in the first quarter of 2004 to help manage the constant in-bound and outbound flow of e-mail as well as e-mail archiving and storage.

The SEC’s Office of Information Technology had an initiative in place to meet the following business objectives for thousands of mailboxes in an Exchange environment:

Reduce the growing size of the Exchange messaging databases by efficiently migrating mail off the message servers to specialised and more affordable online archive storage. Improve email archive search capabilities to enable ready access to and production of email files as needed.

Howard Elias, EMC’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Marketing and Office of Technology, said, “As evidenced by our work with the SEC, the combined value of EMC and our LEGATO Software division has never been more pronounced. The EMC/Legato solution will substantially improve the SEC's ability to manage and access its email databases and, to that extent, enable the SEC to perform its mission more efficiently.”

With LEGATO EmailXtender and DiskXtender, data automatically moves off the e-mail message server and into the Centera Compliance Edition content addressed storage (CAS) system, capturing and indexing all incoming and outgoing e-mails. By seamlessly extending e-mail message stores into EMC Centera, e-mail server stress and bottlenecks are reduced, lowering the total cost of ownership.

EMC Centera is the world's first content addressed storage (CAS) solution specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of “fixed content”, such as e-mail and other unchanging digital assets that are retained for active reference and long-term value. Centera provides online access with assured content authenticity and petabyte scalability. The first magnetic disk-based WORM device, Centera facilitates compliance with the most stringent regulatory requirements. It is the optimum solution for fixed content, providing functionality not available in tape, optical, or traditional disk solutions—at a lower total cost of ownership.

LEGATO EmailXtender is a centralised data storage and retrieval system that automatically collects, organises, retains and retrieves email messages/attachments, supporting Microsoft Exchange/Outlook, Lotus Notes/Domino, UNIX Sendmail and Bloomberg Mail. This scalable, comprehensive, policy-based system moves data off the email message server and into the storage system, capturing and indexing all incoming and outgoing emails. EmailXtender provides fast access to stored emails, enables quick email restoration and helps reduce server backup time, allowing organisations to reduce TCO and comply with organisational or industry regulations.
