Mimosa Systems, a leader in next-generation email, file and SharePoint archiving solutions, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named the Mimosa NearPoint™ software solution as the winner of the 2009 Tomorrow’s Technology Today Award in the Email Content Management category. This prestigious award recognizes vendors with advanced, ground-breaking technologies and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security.
Enterprises deal with the challenge of managing growing volumes of email, file and SharePoint content. According to Ferris Research, the average businessperson sends over 600 emails in a given week. And, many of these emails are either business records, or contain valuable corporate knowledge and need to be retained accordingly. Keeping a large volume of email leads to higher storage costs and management headaches for IT staff in the form of longer back-up windows and time-consuming recoveries, and discovery requests. As message stores grow, organizations face challenges with managing storage costs, speeding recovery times, ending eDiscovery fire drills, and mitigating content-related risks by ensuring proper usage of content within the organization.
Mimosa NearPoint is a unified archiving solution that addresses critical customer requirements around email, file, instant messages and SharePoint content. The solution provides comprehensive email archiving, mailbox management, self-service recovery, “one-click” disaster recovery, and end-user search in a single solution. In addition, Mimosa NearPoint provides content monitoring capabilities that deliver unmatched employee supervision and risk management to meet the demands of more vigilant corporate governance policies and regulatory compliance.
“Threats have no boundaries and security awareness is the key to a proactive approach,” says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. “Probably nothing differentiates any product or solution more than the superior technologies that make them suitable for today’s needs while proactively being ready for tomorrow too.”
“Info Security Products Guide’s recognition of Mimosa further validates our innovation and leadership in delivering next-generation archiving solutions,” said Scott Whitney, vice president, product management of Mimosa Systems. “Corporations worldwide have standardized on Mimosa NearPoint to proactively manage runaway email and information growth and address stringent eDiscovery and regulatory compliance mandates in an intuitive, cost-effective manner.”
