PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Atempo, Inc., a leading provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, today announced the acquisition of Lighthouse Global Technologies, Inc., developer of E-Trail Digital Archive, a feature-rich, open architecture e-mail archiving solution. The acquisition will enable Atempo to quickly integrate the e-mail archiving software with Atempos file archiving technology to deliver a comprehensive digital archiving solution.
Our acquisition of Lighthouse is another important step in Atempos commitment to meet the growing needs of medium and large companies for data protection and digital archiving, said Neal Ater, CEO of Atempo. Lighthouse has been a technology leader in addressing critical regulatory and business process e-mail archiving requirements. Its open architecture enables us to move quickly to integrate these capabilities into a fully-featured file and e-mail archiving product.
Atempos file archiving software, Atempo Archive Server, was introduced in 2007 to reduce the cost and complexity of long-term protection of critical data assets. With regulatory compliance and e-Discovery requirements driving the need for e-mail retention, the integration between file and e-mail archiving has become critical.
Atempos acquisition of Lighthouse Global Technologies is good news for customers, said Laura DuBois, Program Director at research firm IDC. Companies are increasingly looking to address their file and e-mail archiving requirements through an integrated solution that cost-effectively improves data retention and retrieval. Atempo clearly recognizes this important market need.
