MessageLabs Adds Next Gen Email

NEW YORK and LONDON -- MessageLabs, a leading
provider of integrated messaging and web security services to businesses
worldwide, today announced the launch of v3.0 of its Archiving service.
A pioneer in the software as a service industry, MessageLabs is the
first managed service provider to offer email archiving suited to all
three major archiving needs: email storage management, legal discovery
and regulatory compliance.

According to research conducted by Osterman Research, 49 percent of
organizations that today do not have an archiving system expect to
implement a solution by the end of 2008. Much of the interest in
archiving is being driven by rapidly growing email databases - Osterman
Research data shows that message stores are growing at an average of 35
percent annually. Inbox size management is a pain point for both IT
teams and end users, requiring most organizations to implement mailbox
size quotas that are tedious and time-consuming to manage.

"Regulations, such as FRCP in the US, plus court requirements place the
burden of fast legal discovery of messaging on all businesses," said
Michael Osterman, President, Osterman Research. "According to a recent
survey conducted by Osterman Research, the average time investment to
complete just one discovery request is 17 person-hours - 60 percent of
messaging decision makers considers discovery requests to be a painful
or disruptive process."
