A new way to manage email for compliance and discovery

Quest Software is already putting to good use the tech it acquired from its recent purchase of AfterMail. Quest said on Monday that it has released Archive Manager 3.0, a new email archiving solution that captures, indexes and stores messaging data for mailbox management, compliance and knowledge sharing.

Quest Archive Manager 3.0 provides benefits in three key areas, the company says:

Compliance and e-discovery support: Archive Manager captures all email and attachments, including those in PST files, and stores them in a tamper-proof data store. This ensures a complete and accurate record of all email communication across an organization. That data is available at any time to meet audit or legal requirements.

Knowledge sharing: Massive amounts of corporate information are found in email, and locking down email data for compliance purposes often results in the loss of this critical business intelligence for other purposes. Archive Manager provides secure access to indexed email and attachments, making it usable by Customer Relationship Management systems or Web portals such as SharePoint.

Mailbox storage management: Archive Manager offers single-instance storage and compression technology to control data volume and decrease storage costs.

North American pricing for Archive Manager 3.0 begins at $40 per managed mailbox. The product is generally available, and more information is here.
