GFI Software launched GFI MAX MailArchive, a hosted service which allows businesses to archive email messages to geographically distributed datacenters for future search, reference and retrieval.
The platform neutral service can either be used standalone or integrated within existing GFI MAX MailProtection to offer comprehensive anti-virus, anti-spam and secure email archive service.
GFI MAX MailArchive helps IT service providers solve one of the biggest challenges facing SMBs today – how to offload their creaking email infrastructure and remove the need for costly infrastructure upgrades.
GFI MAX MailArchive is the next major component in GFI MAX comprehensive service offering for IT support companies and managed service providers. It will allow them to offer their customers a highly secure and available solution to deliver fully-hosted email archiving on a user-by-user basis.
Offered as a part of GFI MAX MailProtection, the solution can be activated instantly by an administrator in the control panel and customized for each client’s own branding and is priced per mailbox archived. This provides greater flexibility and cost-effectiveness for the client than any on-premise solution.
