Intermedia's Office in the Cloud Adds Legally Compliant Email Archiving for EMEA

Intermedia's Email Archiving for Its Hosted Exchange Service Preserves, Protects and Recovers Email to Safeguard Intellectual Property, Assure Legal Compliance and Speed eDiscovery

BASINGSTOKE, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 10/02/13 -- Intermedia, the world's largest one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business applications, enhanced its Office in the Cloud™ suite of services in EMEA with legally compliant email archiving. This service helps businesses cope with two growing challenges: the continually rising volume of email coupled with the growing set of industry regulations and legal risks compelling businesses to retain communications in perpetuity.

Intermedia's cloud-based Email Archiving service provides the perfect solution for protecting the institutional knowledge contained in an organization's email. By integrating email storage, security and recovery features, Email Archiving alleviates pressures on business and IT leaders to preserve intellectual property, simplify legal eDiscovery, and assure compliance with regulatory requirements including those set out, for example, by the UK's FCA, PRA and legislation such as the Data Protection Act of 1998.

Features include:

  • 100 percent data capture across devices and platforms (including POP/IMAP accounts)
  • Unlimited storage, users and retention time
  • Simple, flexible searching, filtering, tagging and recovery methods
  • Export options include PST, SF, EML, HTML, PDF and other formats
  • Encryption of data both in-transit and at-rest
  • End-user access via Intermedia's MyServices (accessible though the web or Outlook)
  • Free 24/7 phone and email support
  • Worry-free security and reliability
  • Plan flexibility: add archiving for every mailbox or just specific ones

"Compliant Email Archiving adds protection against legal and regulatory issues beyond the data security, backup and reliability levels for which Intermedia is already known," says Ed Macnair, Managing Director, EMEA. "Our cloud already assures business continuity for all of our customers. Email Archiving adds to that by storing emails in a EU-based, tamper-proof data center so they are formally admissible as evidence, compliant with industry regulations and protected against accidental or intentional deletion by employees."

Archived email is easily accessed and managed using Intermedia's HostPilot control panel. HostPilot empowers administrators with all of the control they'd expect from an on-premise deployment. For example, they can sync Intermedia's cloud services with their on-premise Active Directory. In addition, VARs, MSPs and other partners use HostPilot to rapidly design, customize and deploy their own private-labeled cloud offerings.

Email Archiving for EMEA builds upon Intermedia's recent acquisition of UK identity and access management vendor, SaaSID. In addition to strengthening Intermedia's commitment to protecting EMEA customers data, Intermedia now provides all of its customers with a single point of control over their employees' access to cloud services and applications and minimizes the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data.
