Sonasoft Corp., a provide of compliance, disaster recovery and data-protection products for the Microsoft platform, has made available an email archiving service for Microsoft Exchange Server. The new offering is designed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses. According to Sonasoft, Microsoft Exchange Server is being used by many companies as a document repository and management system, in addition to its original purpose as an email server. Businesses are increasingly being asked to retrieve emails during litigation. In addition, they must comply with numerous regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. Sonasoft's SonaSafe product for email archiving is designed to meet regulatory compliance and electronic discovery needs. It captures all incoming, outgoing and internal emails, storing them in archive databases as a Single Instance Store (SIS). Through the use of "stubbing," the contents of messages with attachments are saved in the archive database, leaving behind an empty shell, or "stub," of the message in the body of the email. The approach will reduce the size of the Exchange server by up to 90 percent, Sonasoft said.
