Postini Adds Message Discovery

SAN CARLOS, Calif. -- Postini, a global
leader in on-demand communications security and compliance solutions
for email, instant messaging and the web, today announced the
addition of Message Discovery capabilities to address a wide range of
customer needs, including optimizing mailbox storage management,
e-discovery and litigation case management.

"Explosive growth of email and IM communications has created both a
message data management and a message discovery problem for most
companies," said Cynthia Jackson, a partner at Baker & McKenzie LLP.
"Companies need to evaluate the legal and IT risks associated with
using back-up tapes and disks from an e-discovery perspective. In our
recently published 'Business Guide to Compliance' we highlight that
as of October 2006 nearly 54 percent of corporate counsels were not
even aware of the impact of recent Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
amendments. Small and medium businesses are particularly vulnerable
to cost overruns in case of a data loss or lawsuit because they do
not have the IT resources of large companies." This guide is

"The adoption of an online message archiving strategy is not just
limited to large or regulated companies," said Scott Petry, founder,
chief technology officer and executive vice president of product
development at Postini. "Even unregulated small and mid-size
businesses are impacted by message storage management and e-discovery
costs. They should be actively saving and managing electronic data
online. Postini is delivering on our commitment to offer flexible
on-demand message archiving options for customers of all sizes,
across all industries that are easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy and
deliver rapid return on investment for our customers."
