8/26/2010: ARTEC Presents EMA® 3.8
The newest version of the e-mail and document-archiving appliance is now available.
Karben, August 26, 2010 - The Archiving specialist ARTEC IT Solutions (www.artec-it.de) presents the newest version of its archiving solution; EMA® 3.8. Innovative changes and updated features ensure that administrators and other users have even more comfortable and efficient use of EMA® for the compliant archiving of e-mails and documents.
New features include:
- An attribute system for better organization of the archive
- E-mail viewer directly accessible from the search interface
- Limiting of search queries for auditors
One of the most important improvements to version 3.8 is the attribute system. It is now possible to append meta-data to documents and e-mail messages, which helps ensure that the archive remains organized. Moreover, attributes can help improve the speed of search queries. Appending meta-data to documents does not compromise legal compliance in any way. The Basic Attribute System, supplied free of charge to all EMA® users, has a collection of predefined attributes and one additional field that can hold a user-defined attribute. Many predefined attributes exist. These are linked to various features provided by EMA®. For example, attributes exist to mark e-mail messages as private in order to post-process them according to specified criteria.
The optional Enterprise Attribute System allows up to 100 user-defined attributes to be created using a range of different features. Available field types include text, numeric, selection, memo, and Yes/No fields. This makes it possible to structure the archive in a highly customizable manner.
EMA® version 3.8 also turns the appliance into a full-fledged e-mail message viewer. Archived messages can be comfortably read from within the EMA® user interface; without the use of e-mail clients or EML files. By clicking on the subject, the entire e-mail is displayed inside the browser. In addition to the convenient display of e-mail messages, this new feature enables the use of the archive in the event of a breakdown of the normal e-mail infrastructure.
In order to set up limited accounts for auditors, the EMA® 3.8 contains a feature to limit the search queries of these accounts. Such limited accounts are especially suited to comply with data protection rules and ensure data security.
