6Information Retention “70% of an average organization’s intellectual property resides in messages and attachments.”ESG Research 2005It’s not hard to understand why managing and archiving s is becoming increasingly important when you consider both the volume of s being sent and the important business information contained in . As recently as just 15 years ago, most business information was stored in some form of hard copy. But a 2005 study done by UC Berkeley revealed that, for many companies, 90% of their business information is created in electronic format and up to 70% of that information never gets printed at all.What used to get delivered via the US Mail, FedEx, or your fax machine now comes through . The result is that up to 70% of a company’s intellectual property can reside within the company’s .The result is that business’s are really starting to recognize the need to manage and retain this information.

12Williams v. Taser International, Inc.(N.D. Ga. June 4, 2007) Taser implies that because it has elected to hire and train only a single technology employee, and because it has chosen to retain only a handful of attorneys to conduct document review, it is somehow relieved from its obligations to timely respond to Plaintiffs’ discovery requests. That is not the case. Rather, the Court expects that Taser will make all reasonable efforts to comply with its discovery orders including, if necessary, retaining additional IT professionals to search electronic databases and adding additional attorneys to perform document review.

16Hosted Solution Easy to get started. No up front capital costs System management handled by hosting companyData sits outside the firewallIn addition to information retention, there are many other reasons that companies are looking at management and retention solutions.Legal discovery, for example, has definitely come to the forefront in the past couple of years as the courts have held that electronic information, including , must be provided in a timely manner when requested by the courts. Last year Morgan Stanley agreed to pay $15 million to settle charges by federal securities regulators because it failed to produce s in several investigations. New Federal Rules of Civil procedure announced last December spell out even more requirements for producing records for legal discovery. We’ve produced a white paper on these new rules that you can find on our web site.Reducing the load on IT, by reducing backup and storage requirements and by reducing demands on IT staff time, meeting compliance requirements like Sarbanes Oxley and HIPPA, or simply improving the productivity of your staff by making information easier to find, are all good reasons for implementing an archive solution.Added cost for additional mailbox account or data retrievalMonthly per-user charge results in higher cost over time

18The ArcMail Solution How it works: Here’s how Defender works: In most networks, companies will have a firewall and a spam and virus filter installed to prevent unwanted mail from reaching the mail server. Wanted mail then arrives at the mail server and is immediately forwarded on to the recipient's mailbox. We utilize the journaling function on the mail server to send a copy of each mail to Defender at the same time the mail is forwarded to the recipient's mailbox.When the mail arrives on Defender, Defender immediately indexes all of the standard header fields, like to, from, date, subject, and attachment name. Defender also indexes all of the text of both the and any attachments so that the end user can quickly and easily find specific s in a variety of different ways later on.
19Easy to Install Everything you need in one network appliance 500GB – 12TB of on-board disk storageServer & Operating SystemDatabase Management SystemArchiving SoftwareNothing to install on mail server or desktopJournaling configuration on mail serverWeb based user interfaceOne of the criteria for Defender was to reduce the load on IT, both in terms of the load on the mail server and backup, but also in terms of the time and effort required by your IT staff to support recovery requests and to manage their various applications. That’s why we created Defender as a network appliance.Defender has every you need for archiving in one device. It combines up to 12TB of disk storage with the required database, network, and user administration capabilities to provide complete archiving functionality.In addition, because all of the indexing and search processing is handled by Defender, there’s nothing that needs to be installed on either the mail server or individual desktops, which greatly simplifies installation and prevents adding additional load to the mail server.
20Easy to Manage Emails archived immediately and automatically Secure data storageRAID fault tolerance with hot swap drivesIndividual can’t be deleted or changedBuilt-in media independent backup and roll-off capabilityActive Directory compatibilityUser level security to prevent unauthorized mail viewDaily status and real-time exception reportingWe’ve also worked hard to make Defender easy to manage. For example, all s that cross the mail server are archived both immediately and automatically. We think storing all of the mail automatically is important for two reasons. First, if all you do is receive 30 s each day and you respond to 20 of them, you’ll work with over 10,000 s in a single year. Not only is the chore of going through 10,000 s to decide which to keep and which to delete an unproductive use of time, it’s also almost impossible to know in advance which s you’re going to need later on. By automatically storing a copy of all s, you and your end users can know that whichever s become important later on will be in the archive.Secondly, automatically storing all s is important if the archive is ever needed for what we call “database integrity” purposes, like legal discovery, HR issues, or contract disputes. By storing every , the company can be confident that all of the needed information is in the archive.All of our devices use RAID disk management for fault tolerance. If a drive fails, it can be swapped out, a new drive can be inserted, and the RAID manager will take care of repairing the data on the drives.Defender comes with built in media independent backup capability The way this work is that Defender can create a backup file and store it on any mounted network drive, where it can be backed up to disk or tape using whatever backup software you’re already using.Defender is compatible with Active Directory, so if you’re using Microsoft Exchange and you do want to give your end users access to their individual archives, Defender will harvest the user names and passwords from Active Directory.Because of the sensitive nature of s, Defender comes with multiple levels of security to prevent unauthorized mail view.And Defender provides automatic status reports that let the administrator know that archiving is working successfully and how many mails are archived each day. Defender will also send out real-time exception reports if something goes wrong, like a disk failure, for example.

22Additional Features Import MS Exchange, PST, and mbox files Export capabilitySupports multiple mail servers and multiple domainsData CompressionSingle Instance StorageNo per-seat license requirementAnd finally, here’s a quick look at some additional features on Defender.Defender supports the import of past mails from Exchange, desktop PST files, or mbox files. Defender can also export data to Outlook mailboxes or in a text based file that can be read by any standard text editor like Microsoft WORD.Defender has the capability of supporting input from multiple mail servers as well as from multiple domains.All data that arrives on Defender is compressed for efficient disk utilization, and Defender does Single Instance Storage for all internal mail, which means that if one user in your company sends a mail and attachments to 50 people in your company, Defender will store that mail and the attachments only once.And finally, in keeping with our goal to keep things simple, Defender is priced and licensed by the amount of daily mail volume and the total storage required rather than requiring individual seat licenses that have to be purchased and managed.
