Spamina has announced the launch of a hosted email archiving solution.

As revealed to SC Magazine last month, the addition to its email security strategy will allow Spamina to introduce a completely new set of users to the benefits of email archiving.

It said that Cloud Email Archiving allows system administrators to capture, store and retrieve inbound, outbound and internal emails through a simple user interface. The platform can be managed remotely and is compatible with all standard email servers.

Dan Power, UK country manager at Spamina, said: “Many organisations have shied away from email archiving in the cloud as it has been expensive and sold using complex calculations based on the size of mailbox and the length of time for which the data will be stored. Consequently, only organisations that were relatively wealthy or had legal compliancy requirements to store email used the technology.

“However with our low cost pricing plan, businesses previously priced out of email archiving are now able to take advantage of its benefits, and the reseller will be able to bring a key market differentiator to a much wider range of prospects.”

Stefano Spirito, senior product manager at Spamina, said: “The email archiving market is already projected by Gartner to grow by 23 per cent annually, driven primarily by compliance and e-discovery needs. With the cost model being proposed by Spamina, email archiving can become a viable alternative to traditional in-house backup which is time consuming and takes up valuable internal resources.”
