Axway Introduces a Cloud-Based E-mail Archiving Solution
By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
Offering its users the inherent benefits of cloud computing, Axway has unveiled Axway Archiving, a cloud-based e-mail archiving solution.
With this cloud computing e-mail archiving solution, there is no need to have on-premise hardware, software and storage infrastructure, states the company.
E-mail has emerged as the primary source to track discussions and data exchanges between individuals and organizations, according to Axway. Increasingly, companies are required to comply with a range of governance and transparency regulations. The requirements for archiving don’t just impact financial services.
Rather, archiving is necessary to comply with e-discovery requests, to better manage mail servers and to meet corporate and industry mandates all over the world.
With Axway e-mail archiving solution, companies do not need to purchase or manage additional archiving hardware or software to archive, store and retrieve e-mail communications. The solution complements e-mail servers already on-premise and frees IT resources previously committed to managing appliances. Also, Axway Archiving automates maintenance, liberating IT from testing, managing and rolling out upgrades.
“Flexible, cloud-based e-mail archiving is essential to effective information management due to unavoidable compliance with legal requests and industry regulations," said Axway CEO Christophe Fabre. “Axway Archiving represents the next step in Axway’s cloud strategy, and furthers the effectiveness of business interaction networks in accelerating business and eliminating multi-enterprise barriers.”
Axway Archiving provides benefits such as unlimited e-mail storage, guaranteed 99.99 percent uptime service-level agreement, advanced search and e-discovery features, no need for product training, ultra-reliable grid utility storage using elastic virtual computing, multiple access points to customer data using two-factor authentication and redundant communication links.
Recently, the company announced that the latest release of the Synchrony™ Framework has achieved the U.S. government’s Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1 certification. This FIPS certification brings the benchmark government data security standard to Synchrony-powered business-to-business transactions and solutions. Synchrony improves managed file transfer, B2B orchestration and visibility for real-time business interactions via a service-oriented architecture.
