New study finds most organizations lack email policies

A new market research study conducted by Osterman Research for MessageOne finds that more than 65 percent of U.S. businesses remain unprepared to meet strict court requirements for the discovery and handling of electronic evidence. This is not surprising given the current archiving product landscape.

Sonian hears from many organizations their reluctance to deploy an on-premise installed archive solution is based on initial upfront costs for hardware, software and installation fees. When you layer on storage infrastructure to support terabytes of data stored securely and indexed for 3, 5, 7, and 10 year retention periods, installed archiving ownership costs rise dramatically.

It's time for a fresh approach to solving this "man-made" problem. Implementing an archive solution shouldn't be a budget-busting hardship for any organization.

We will be making some pricing announcements very soon that will prove our point.
