ADAM 2.2 Further Delivers Increased Mac Support and New File Archiving Integration

LONDON, UK, 5th March 2009 - Atempo, Inc., a leading provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, today introduced the new version of its e-mail archiving software, Atempo Digital Archive for Messaging (ADAM) 2.2. The software delivers critical new mailbox management enhancements, added support for Mac software and hardware, and key integration with Atempo Digital Archive (ADA), the company’s file archiving software. While optimised for mid-size and larger organizations, ADAM’s ease-of-installation and ease-of-use enables any-size storage environment to simplify and streamline the archival process for all messaging data, resulting in critical cost-savings.

The new software features an enhanced ADAM Policy Manager module that satisfies mailbox management requirements regardless of an organisation’s mail server or architecture. The software’s open architecture enables ADAM to archive emails from a wide range of e-mail servers. This gives Atempo the flexibility to support a wide range of messaging architectures in addition to Microsoft Exchange, including Lotus Notes, Novell Groupwise and most other commercial IMAP based e-mail servers. The Policy Manager module also gives authorized users enhanced functionality, with the ability to delete stubbed e-mails and implement automatic deletion or archival policies to any message based on the user’s specified criteria.

“The protection of digital assets is a necessary investment for any organization, and those needing to minimise IT expenses are maximising IT efficiency by implementing file and messaging archiving into their storage strategy,” said Mark Sutter, CTO of Atempo. “In addition to satisfying eDiscovery and compliance requirements, the main benefit that ADAM customers across all industries see is the significant cost-savings from having procedures in place that automatically move critical data onto inexpensive archival media. ADAM 2.2 gives any data-intensive organisation a simplified and flexible solution to managing this process of long-term data retention.”

For organisations where eDiscovery and other regulatory compliance issues are concerns, ADAM’s full-context indexing and search capability allows users to quickly locate and restore specific e-mails, attachments and other messaging data.

“We recently deployed Atempo Digital Archiving for Messaging to archive e-mails sent and received by our employees with the main objective of fulfilling regulatory compliance requirements,” said Patrick Marty, system engineer at Realisator AG, a provider of services and IT systems to over one-third of Switzerland’s temporary employment market. “All e-mail communications are now being archived initially on disk then on tape for long-term retention, and can be easily retrieved in case of litigation.”

ADAM 2.2 further builds on Atempo’s industry-leading support for the Mac platform. The software includes new features for Microsoft Entourage that allows Mac end-users the same archive search capabilities as their peers using Microsoft Outlook. Also for the first time, ADAM’s server architecture has the ability to run on Mac OS X. Together, these enhancements give Mac and Windows users equal support in cross-platform organizations, and also make ADAM the only e-mail archiving solution that can fully support a dedicated Mac environment.

Finally, the new ADAM software includes additional integration with Atempo Digital Archive (ADA), Atempo’s file archiving solution, which gives customers installing both solutions the benefit of de-duplication and shared storage across a broad range of archive storage media.
