The platform is an Exchange email archiving and e-discovery solution aimed at midmarket companies.
management solutions company Red Earth Software introduced Policy Patrol
Archiver, a new email archiving and e-discovery solution for small to medium-size businesses using Microsoft
Exchange Server. Policy Patrol Archiver now helps SMBs meet compliancy needs,
reduce Exchange store size and boost Exchange performance.
Patrol Archiver automatically stores emails in a centralized archive location,
allowing administrators to set email retention policies and meet email
archiving requirements. Emails are archived into the database instantly, so
that even if a user deletes an email, it will still be archived into the
database. Users can search and restore their emails through a Web browser.
SMBs are becoming more and more aware of the importance of archiving their
data, most have not yet implemented an archiving solution because current
offerings are simply too expensive or too complicated to implement and manage,"
said Mike Spykerman, CEO of Red Earth Software. "Policy Patrol Archiver now
offers a solution that is affordable and manageable for companies of any size."
Patrol Archiver reduces the Exchange Information Store size by automatically
stubbing messages (i.e., replacing the body of the message with a link to the
message in the archive) or removing messages entirely from the Exchange
Information Store. In doing so, Policy Patrol Archiver helps decrease Exchange
backup and restore times, and boosts Exchange Server performance.
platform is an Exchange email archiving and e-discovery solution. Emails and
attachments are stored in a Microsoft SQL Server database and can be searched
and viewed through a Web interface. Messages can be removed from the Exchange
Information Store or replaced by a "message stub" with a link to the
email in the archive. A 30-day evaluation version can be downloaded via the
order to reduce the Exchange Server load, a common practice is to ask employees
to delete emails before their mailbox reaches a certain size," Spykerman said.
"Although this might result in a smaller Exchange Information Store, asking
employees to simply delete emails indiscriminately is not a good solution for
eDiscovery purposes. The company will have no control over which emails are
deleted and which are kept, and if asked to produce emails on a court order,
will have a hard time explaining why some emails can be found and others not. A
much better approach is to automatically move emails of a certain age off the
Exchange Server into a central database, where emails can be stored/purged
according to company retention policies."
