Lighthouse Global Technologies Introduces Electronic Communications Archiving Software to Aid in Compliance

Open source, feature-rich archival system captures electronic communications for regulatory compliance and internal policy enforcement

Stamford, CT -- April 13, 2006 -- Lighthouse Global Technologies, a key provider of digital archive solutions, introduces E-Trail Digital Archive, an open source-based, feature-rich archival system designed to capture electronic communications for regulatory compliance and internal policy enforcement. An easy-to-operate, turn-key solution, Lighthouse’s E-Trail Digital Archive uses any of three different methods -- real-time capture, batch capture, or backfilling from archive media -- to capture e-mail correspondence, instant messages, faxes, and other unstructured communication data within a corporate setting.

Lighthouse’s E-Trail Digital Archive leverages a user-friendly Web interface to allow users to select communications based on any combination of sender(s), receiver(s), date/time windows, department codes, and keyword/phrases/regular expressions. The solution captures the information based on the designated criteria, storing a single copy of the message (and each of its associated attachments) to guarantee minimal storage usage.

Users can quickly retrieve stored communications with dynamic searching functionalities that allow them to fine-tune search queries based on case sensitivity/insensitivity, external/internal/all communication filters, and Boolean operations on the sender/receiver fields. Advanced features of the solution include the ability to create scheduled and/or automated queries that greatly simplify common user activity.

Additional benefits of the E-Trail Digital Archive solution include:

  • Enhanced regulatory compliance/litigation support %%Better internal policy control %%Reduced e-mail server costs %%Enhanced client relationship management reporting

While E-Trail Digital Archive is scalable to any size organization, it has been specially engineered with small- to medium-sized enterprises in mind. “The affordability and ease-of-use offered by the E-Trail Digital Archive solution leaves no excuse for any organization to ignore its Sarbanes-Oxley obligations with respect to information archiving and retrieval,” said Arthur Riel, CTO of Lighthouse Global Technologies.

“Legal and regulatory authorities have zero tolerance when it comes to a lack of document production in either regulatory investigations or civil litigation cases. E-Trail Digital Archive allows any business to archive and retrieve electronic communications so that they can address any and all regulatory, legal, or policy enforcement issues that may arise.”
