Email security firm MessageLabs has launched a new version of its archiving service.

MessageLabs Archiving Service v3.0 is said to store internal and external emails securely and offers on-demand access to messages once they have been archived.

The hosted service also enables organisations to search for, locate and secure electronic data for legal matters and meet regulatory compliance needs, MessageLabs claimed.

Additional features include archive search and retrieval, encrypted infrastructure, Microsoft 2007 support for Outlook, Office and Exchange, and attachment subbing, a process that replaces attachments in users’ inboxes with archive references.

The managed service is available now. Pricing details were unavailable at the time of going to press.
