Mimosa Systems, the leader in Live Content Archiving solutions, today announced its expansion into the exploding Chinese market after signing a major distribution deal with Shenzhen Federal Software, a major distributor of Microsoft products, network appliances, software, and storage solutions with more than 12 years of experience in selling and localizing software for the Chinese market. Shenzhen Federal Software will sell and support Mimosa’s Chinese version of Mimosa NearPointTM, which is transforming the email archiving market worldwide.
“In a short time, Mimosa has established itself as the technology leader and visionary in the content archiving space,” said Tommy Nham, regional sales director, Asia Pacific, Mimosa Systems. “Mimosa and Shenzhen Federal Software are working closely with Microsoft as Gold Certified Partners, providing comprehensive pre- and post-sales support and making significant investments in marketing to establish Mimosa as the premier provider of the industry’s most comprehensive content archiving for the Chinese market.”
Basic Standard Will Drive Need for Email Archiving in China
Similar to Sarbanes Oxley, China’s Basic Standard for Enterprise Internal Control will bring stronger corporate governance to China’s listed companies. The Basic Standard is currently in its public comment stage until September 30, 2008. The Basic Standard will then undergo revisions and will become effective on July 1, 2009. The proposed regulations require new controls for publicly listed companies that can be managed with the Mimosa next-generation archiving solution for retention, discovery, regulatory compliance, content monitoring and data protection in a single, unified solution.
“For Chinese companies preparing for compliance regulations, one of the greatest challenges they face is managing their exploding growth of email and documents,” said Yuanzhong Huang, CEO, Shenzhen Federal Software. “The Chinese market is eager for a next-generation content archiving solution such as NearPoint to help companies comply with the Basic Standard requirement, and to also help them to streamline their storage environment and lower costs.”
