PostPath Debuts New E-Mail Archiving Solution

Drop-in alternative to Microsoft Exchange, company says

PostPath launched this week the PostPath Server Archive Edition, the latest product in the company's PostPath Server line.

The e-mail archiving solution is a "drop-in alternative to Microsoft Exchange," the company said, that was designed for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and lets users easily access all messages in their system, both current and old.

The PostPath Server Archive Edition uses a "simple-forward archiving" technique to maintain an eDiscovery repository, doing away with need to implement third-party solutions that are expensive and can potentially slow performance. The company describes it as a "two-server bundle" solution; one server automatically "forks" e-mails and sends each copy to the second server, which acts as the archiving agent.

"With regulations such as FRCP eDiscovery, Sarbanes-Oxley, and HIPAA, there has never been a more critical time for companies to address their archiving plans," said PostPath CEO Duncan Greatwood in a press release. "But today's approaches to e-mail archiving have been hard to justify for SMBs. With PostPath Server Archive Edition, we deliver highly-scalable, easy-to-own archiving technology with the affordability and manageability for mid-sized businesses."

Like other products in the PostPath Server line, the PostPath Server Archive Edition works with ActiveSync, Active Directory, Outlook, and BlackBerry. For more information, visit http://www.postpath.com.
