Barracuda Touts Email Archiving

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Barracuda Networks Inc., the worldwide leader in email and Web security appliances, released a new study that examines the adoption of message archiving solutions within a cross-section of organizations in North America. Collected from the responses of 200 IT professionals in North America, the survey found that an overwhelming majority, nearly 82 percent, view email archiving as important” or “very important” for their organization. Further, more than two-thirds of respondents cited reasons other than compliance as their main consideration for implementing an email archiving solution.

Respondents cited reasons such as user access to archived email (21 percent), email retention is considered a best practice (15 percent) and providing access to old email when storage quotas are in effect (15 percent), as the most important reasons for archiving email.

“Email archiving is not just for organizations in heavily-regulated industries such as the financial, healthcare or government sectors,” said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. “Organizations from a range of vertical markets recognize that email archiving leads to a more efficient network from an IT standpoint as well as from the end user’s perspective.”
