New hosted email archive service designed for IT Support and Managed Service Providers
GFI Software, a leading IT solutions provider for small and medium-sized enterprises, today announced the launch of a new service for MSPs - GFI MAX MailArchive - a hosted service which allows businesses to archive email messages to geographically distributed datacenters for future search, reference and retrieval. The platform neutral service can either be used standalone or integrated within existing GFI MAX MailProtection to offer comprehensive antivirus, anti-spam and secure email archive service. GFI MAX MailArchive helps IT service providers solve one of the biggest challenges facing SMBs today - how to offload their creaking email infrastructure and remove the need for costly infrastructure upgrades.
GFI MAX MailArchive is the next major component in GFI MAX comprehensive service offering for IT support companies and managed service providers. It will allow them to offer their customers a highly secure and available solution to deliver fully-hosted email archiving on a user-by-user basis. Priced competitively using GFI MAX’s familiar approach of no minimum commitment, no long-term contracts and pay-as-you-go billing, the ease of implementation will be a major benefit to customers wishing to roll the solution out to large numbers of users with minimum effort.
Offered as a part of GFI MAX MailProtection, the solution can be activated instantly by an administrator in the control panel and customized for each client’s own branding and is priced per mailbox archived. This provides greater flexibility and cost-effectiveness for the client than any on-premise solution.
“Email infrastructure requirements are growing each day as IT administrators struggle to hold on to a mountain of critical intellectual property,” said Dr. Alistair Forbes, General Manager, GFI MAX Business Unit, GFI Software. “The key is to limit the strain on email servers while making the treasure chest of data stored in email easily retrievable and accessible. In providing IT support companies and service providers with a hosted service on which to offload that burden for their customers, GFI MAX MailArchive solves some of the largest storage and compliance problems today in a manner that is cost effective for small and medium-sized enterprises.”
GFI MAX MailArchive delivers a compliance and disaster recovery solution that requires no additional software installation and delivers a high level of resilience by providing geographic distribution of the message store. The GFI MAX MailArchive service is designed to help IT Support companies also help solve customers’ problems aroundoffloading their email infrastructure, automate their retention of email and easily recall critical messages for regulatory requirements or other purposes.
