"As a high-security, high-performance, low total-cost-of-ownership solution, Proofpoint's email archiving product was the perfect fit for our portfolio of cloud-based services."

Proofpoint ARCHIVE is a SaaS solution that makes it easy for organizations to securely archive email and solve the storage management, legal discovery and regulatory compliance challenges associated with email retention. Proofpoint ARCHIVE delivers the performance, scalability and cost savings of SaaS while providing the highest levels of security for each organization's archived data.

Proofpoint's grid storage and search architecture ensures high-speed search results for Proofpoint ARCHIVE users. Search results are returned in just seconds, regardless of the size of a customer's archive, with near-instantaneous search results guaranteed by Proofpoint ARCHIVE's service level agreements.

Proofpoint ARCHIVE's centralized, searchable, policy-based archive ensures that customers are always ready for litigation and regulatory audit requests and the solution makes it easy to create and enforce the legal holds required during eDiscovery.
