Leading Provider of Messaging Security and Management Services Deploys CopperEye Greenwich For Rapid Query Access To 20 Billion Rows Of Transaction Data

29 March 2006 - Bath, UK - CopperEye , a provider of enterprise search solutions for business transaction data, today announced the deployment of CopperEye Greenwich by MessageLabs to provide enhanced reporting on the status of e-mail messages processed by its managed e-mail scanning solutions. MessageLabs is the world's leading provider of messaging security and management services with more than 13,000 clients and offices in eight countries.

CopperEye Greenwich was implemented by MessageLabs to enhance its managed solution for capturing, storing and quickly accessing the status of individual messages from within files containing billions of records. The company found CopperEye Greenwich to be the right solution for cost-effectively meeting its demanding performance requirements. Furthermore, the deployment of CopperEye Greenwich was accomplished in less than four weeks - an unprecedented time for a true enterprise-scale solution.

"MessageLabs is committed to delivering high value services to our customers, with functionality and cost effectiveness that lead the industry," said Carmen Carey, Chief Operating Officer for MessageLabs. "Efficiently locating a single message for any of our clients, at any time, from the billions of messages travelling through our infrastructure was our aim. CopperEye Greenwich was a natural fit for us in this respect, allowing us to deliver real value to our customers, quickly, and without the enormous cost and complexity associated with traditional solutions for managing our enormous volume of data."

CopperEye Greenwich is a strategic element of MessageLabs new enterprise portal architecture, designed to manage and provide access to enormous volumes of transaction data, underscoring MessageLabs ability to provide unparalleled responsiveness to its customers.

"CopperEye Greenwich is returning query results for MessageLabs in seconds without the need for expensive proprietary hardware or the complexity and expense of terabyte-size database solutions" noted Kate Mitchell, CEO of CopperEye. "This is a direct result of approaching the business need as a transaction search problem, rather than a database problem, yielding a solution placed in production in weeks rather than months or years, and at a small fraction of the cost of solving the problem with a commercial database."

CopperEye Greenwich is an innovative enterprise search solution that provides fast query access to large volumes of business transaction data stored in low-cost file systems. CopperEye Greenwich scales easily, managing months or years of transaction history and tens- or hundreds-of-terabytes of data, while providing immediate access to transactions as they occur, without the need for batch loads or massive hardware. Unlike traditional internet search solutions that focus on web pages and documents, CopperEye Greenwich indexes and provides precise and immediate access to large volumes of historical business transactions that otherwise would require the cost and complexity of a relational database or proprietary data warehouse solution.

MessageLabs offers comprehensive messaging security solutions, targeted to today's business issues, helping every enterprise meet its messaging management and security needs. MessageLabs proactive and predictive security service scans for threats outside the enterprise network and is the most effective way to ensure an organization is protected.
