Softek launches message archiving service

Deal to distribute Global Relay system

Security and archiving specialists Softek has signed a deal to distribute services firm Global Relay's hosted message management solution in the UK and Europe. As well as easy day to day access, the Message Archiver system makes regulatory compliance more simple, they say.

All messages are sent to the system over an encrypted connection, the messages themselves are dual-encrypted, before being written to huge storage arrays at multiple worldwide data centres. A full audit trail is provided, and for authenticity purposes, data is also written to tamperproof WORM tapes dedicated to each customer.

Global Relay CEO Warren Roy said: "We have noticed an increasing demand in the UK and Europe for a high performance, easy-to use archiving solution."

Jason Thompson, Softek managing director, explained the logic behind the choice: "The beauty of a hosted archiving solution is clear. There is no hardware or software to purchase or install, the systems integrate with all email platforms, and the service can be setup in within an hour."®
