Sunbelt Software Delivers Expanded Archive Search Capabilities
New Versions of Sunbelt Exchange Archiver and Sunbelt File Archiver Provide Common User Interface and Search for Email, File and SharePoint Archives
Clearwater, Florida – September 28, 2009 – Sunbelt Software, the provider of Windows security software, today announced the availability of Sunbelt Exchange Archiver™ Version 4.0 (SEA) and Sunbelt File Archiver™ Version 4.0 (SFA). Administrators are now able to view the management consoles for both email and file archiving tools in one user interface, easing the burden on businesses facing ever stricter legislation regarding the preservation and sourcing of electronic documents.
The updated releases boast powerful search functions, with both Microsoft Enterprise Search and third party search providing support for full-text search capabilities. Improvements have also been made to the reporting statistics, with detailed reports being generated regarding the archival and retrieval of both email and files. SEA enables companies to preserve all electronic messages on a broad range of storage media, easing the pressure on the existing Exchange servers.
SEA delivers cost-effective enterprise-class email archiving on Microsoft Exchange, Outlook and Outlook Web Access (OWA) for organisations of all sizes. SEA provides administrators with intelligent features such as: integrated Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM); full email continuity and disaster recovery; and Direct Archiving for instant archival of incoming mail.
SFA provides a simple and reliable method for electronic document management and file archiving to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, whilst optimising existing business resources. SFA allows administrators to easily configure rules that will determine what files should be archived and how regularly. This multi-faceted approach to archiving provides businesses with the flexibility required to effectively manage documents.
Both users and administrators can assign metadata tags to documents and messages for easy recovery, or comment on them when additional information related to the archived items are required as part of the historical record. Both items are easily viewed in the unified ArchiveWeb for eDiscovery interface.
“eDiscovery can be a heavy burden where litigation requires businesses to search through millions of emails or files. The improvements to Sunbelt Exchange Archiver and Sunbelt File Archiver make searching for archived emails and other files much more efficient, saving valuable time for IT administrators,” said Sunbelt Software product manager Michelle Dillard. “This next generation archiving approach allows our customers to view and report on the growing volume of data on their networks and to keep storage costs down, all the while ensuring compliance.”
Email continuity and disaster recovery
SEA enables full business continuity in the event of a power outage, natural disaster or human error leading to an Exchange server crash, through archiving all incoming and outgoing emails. Saved messages spread across multiple storage deposits can be retrieved quickly by the administrator thus ensuring minimum disruption to the business once the Exchange server is repaired or replaced.
eDiscovery Web interface
Easy-to-use search capabilities in SEA and SFA’s ArchiveWeb for eDiscovery interface allows users to search for archived Exchange emails, files and SharePoint documents. The searches are granular and permission-based for users, administrators, and auditors. Additionally, results can be viewed in detailed reports and exported to an internal mailbox or as PST files for portability. New in-line preview of documents and custom organisation capabilities are also now available.
Pricing and availability
Both SEA and SFA v4.0 are available immediately and include first year maintenance and support, updates and upgrades. Customers can purchase SEA on a per-mailbox basis with prices starting at £1,260.00 for 50 users. SEA supports Microsoft Exchange 2000, 2003, and 2007 server systems. SFA pricing starts at £9.75/GB of storage up to 100GB with a sliding scale discount based on storage needs. For more information please visit http://www.sunbeltsoftware.com.
