A number of products introduced also focused on the ability of corporations to ensure compliance in areas ranging from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act to internal human resources policies.

For example, Fortiva Inc., in Toronto, announced the Fortiva Archiving and Compliance Suite, an e-mail archiving and compliance product that enables enterprises to manage their e-mail and meet compliance regulations at the same time. The hosted solution integrates with Microsofts Active Directory and Exchange. The message archiving solution addresses data privacy by enabling users to encrypt and index data—using Fortivas DoubleBlind Encryption technology—before sending it to Fortivas network for archiving.

Another product that may help keep enterprises out of hot water is OutBoxer 1.0, from Audiotrieve, in Boxboro, Mass. By using advanced language technology to analyze outgoing mail messages, OutBoxer can ensure e-mail doesnt violate privacy or harassment laws and that messages meet government regulations such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

Cloudmark Inc., in San Francisco, introduced a beta of Cloudmark SafetyBar. The solution, which supports Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, provides users with a rating that gauges a Web sites trust based on feedback from a community of more than 1.2 million Cloudmark users.

The Cloudmark SafetyBar for IE is in beta and will be widely available for free next month. The beta is available at
