Packet Technologies’ recent partnership deal with Canadian email archiving specialist Jatheon Technologies is paying major dividends.
The contract to distribute Jatheon’s plug-n-comply email archiving solutions was formalised in November.
Packet Technologies sales director John Crawford says sales have so far been made to Radio New Zealand, a casino, a major hotel chain and several local bodies. “For the local bodies, it addresses a number of their compliance issues,” he says.
“We’re converting customers off larger archiving products such as Commvault. That’s mainly because Jatheon is simple and cheap. Entry level is sub $10,000, and there is an unlimited user license.”
The Jatheon appliances run on multiple systems simultaneously.
Crawford says email archiving technology is in increasing demand as companies come to rely more on email as their main form of communication.
In a recent Info-Tech Research email archiving product bake-off, Jatheon’s plug-n-comply was named “email archiving champion” and top “value award winner”. The products were rated so highly that they were used as the benchmark to which all other email archiving solutions were compared.
The integrated archiving appliances offer complete in-house control of confidential messaging data, such as email or instant messages. Solutions can be optimised for any mail server, including Exchange, Notes and Groupwise.
