August 18, 2011 - 12:00

GFI Software today unveiled several enhancements to GFI MailArchiver, a leading email archiving and management solution used by thousands of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) worldwide. GFI MailArchiver users can now ensure that employees have quick and easy access to all their archived email via their smartphones, including any Android-powered device, BlackBerry® or iPhone®.

“The way SMBs use email is changing as smartphone adoption explodes and more employees gain access to corporate email via personal or work-issued mobile devices,” said Phil Bousfield, general manager, Infrastructure Business Unit, GFI Software. “That creates new email management headaches for IT administrators, with employees demanding uninterrupted access to all their email while using smartphones with different operating systems and inconsistent email retention and storage limitations. GFI MailArchiver addresses this new challenge by providing users quick and easy access to all archived email through their smartphones.”

GFI MailArchiver users can now access, search and retrieve their archived email through a new Web portal optimized for Android-powered devices, Blackberries and iPhones. This enables SMBs to further capitalize on the efficiencies and versatility of a mobile, connected workforce without creating new IT management challenges.

In addition, GFI MailArchiver now includes customizable retention controls. IT administrators now specify which emails and attachments to retain by size and file type, as well as define how long various file types—including large multimedia files—will remain archived to conserve storage resources.

Easy Email Management
GFI has found that 62.4% of SMBs do not use an email archiving solution. GFI MailArchiver enables SMBs to address many of the challenges associated with their email system, including managing increasing volumes of emails and attachments; maintaining the performance of Microsoft® Exchange servers; relying too heavily on PST files or tape backup to retrieve old or deleted emails for audits or e-discovery requests; complying with the data retention requirements of government regulations; and ensuring that critical information contained in email is not lost and can be restored for business continuity purposes in the event of system failures.

Comprehensive Email Protection

GFI MailEssentials Complete combines anti-spam and anti-malware email protection as a hosted, online solution or an on-premise appliance.
