Overview

Standard and Enterprise Models for Organizations of All Sizes

We found that small businesses and large organizations often have the same general requirements for an archive. Small businesses with few mailboxes often have the same needs as large organizations. Legal regulations play a big role, because all companies have to implement them in an equal manner.

In order to satisfy the technical requirements of an archive in companies of different sizes, we offer EMA® in different models and configurations. There are two general types of appliance models: standard appliances, and enterprise appliances. Every EMA® can be fine-tuned to the needs of an individual customer, because not everyone requires all of the offered functionality. This allows us to tailor every appliance in terms of functionality, as well as in terms of budget.

The standard appliance models (EMA® S40 to EMA® S800) cover the typical requirements of small and medium-sized businesses. They are ideal for companies that require archiving for up to 100 mailboxes on the network. Standard models do not lack any of the important features that define EMA®. Digital signatures, encryption of archived data, and our easy to use full-text search are included. The web based administration interface and optional Four-Eye-Principle authentication as an additional layer of security and privacy round things off in every department.

Larger companies and organizations should look at the enterprise appliance models (EMA® E2000 to EMA® E8000). These appliances offer a perfectly fine-tuned solution that is capable of archiving and managing several thousands of mailboxes or users.

All EMA® models can be extended at any time, if you want to archive more than just e-mail messages. Activating additional modules, such as Print to Archive®, Scan to Archive®, File to Archive®, or Voice to Archive® can be done while the appliance is running, and without interruption. After a new feature is activated, all it takes is some initial configuration in order to archive the additional resources.

Feature Highlights

Encryption EMA® stores an encrypted copy of every e-mail message and document inside the archive.
Storage Independence E-mail messages and documents are archived in a legally compliant manner, no matter which storage system that is used. This means that the archive can even be stored on existing SAN or NAS storage systems, as well as on Netware, UNIX/NSF, or Windows network shares.
Digital Seal A digital seal (date/time) is added to every e-mail message and document. The seal is used to guarantee the authenticity integrity of a process stored in the archive (time stamp).
Decryption Only the appliance that was used to archive an e-mail message or document can decrypt and make it readable again. Malicious parties are barred from accessing and abusing archived information, which ensures peace of mind.
Print to Archive Print to Archive® allows users to store a copy of all or selected documents inside the archive while issuing an ordinary print job. Archived print jobs receive the same protection as other content.
Scan to Archive Scan to Archive® makes it possible to store the contents of conventional, paper-based inboxes inside the archive. The process is easy to perform and hassle-free.
4 Eye Principle Four-Eye-Principle authentication allows organizations configure EMA® so that it requires a second party to be present for sensitive operations. These can be freely configured.
Authentication EMA® supports all common authentication systems, such as LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), OpenLDAP, Kerberos, Active Directory, RADIUS Servers. It also offers additional authentication settings to meet even the most sophisticated demands.
