SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Mimosa Systems, a leader in live content archiving solutions, today announced its expansion into the Japanese market after signing a distribution deal with Macnica Networks, a major distributor of network appliances, software, telecom and storage solutions with more than 20 years of experience in selling and localizing software for the Japanese market. Macnica will sell and support Mimosa's Japanese version of Mimosa NearPointTM, which is transforming the content archiving market worldwide.
Japanese Version of Sarbanes-Oxley (J-SOX) Drives Need for Email Archiving Similar to their counterparts in the United States, Japanese companies are facing their own version of the corporate accounting law, dubbed J-SOX, which went into effect on April 1, 2008. J-SOX requires that companies bolster their computer systems to better manage email and documents, store information for long periods, and keep tabs on employee access to information. J-SOX is creating strong demand for a next-generation content archiving solution such as Mimosa NearPoint.
Mimosa NearPoint addresses critical business and regulatory requirements for content archiving, data protection, disaster recovery, and storage optimization - all in a single platform offering. The solution enables J-SOX compliance, business continuity, and end-user search, while reducing overall operational costs.
"For Japanese companies preparing for J-SOX, one of the greatest challenges they face is managing their email information," said Masahiro Miyabukuro, president, Macnica Networks. "The Japanese market is eager for a world-class email archiving solution such as NearPoint, which will not only help companies comply with J-SOX, but will also help them to streamline their storage environment and lower costs."
