Email Archiving Becoming Necessity for Businesses Large and Small
Jun 18, 2008 (08:06 AM EDT)


SAN DIEGO, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- It should come as no surprise that e-mail is the primary medium for exchanging and collaborating information in the business world. However, the inability of senior managers to access sensitive information quickly and on-demand has become a liability for many companies. Out of this need comes the recent announcement that The I.T. Pros(R) has partnered with Smarsh(R) to provide industry-leading email archiving solutions as part of its service offering to clients. The partnership represents a paradigm shift regarding the need for email and instant message archiving and quick retrieval for all businesses, not just those with compliance requirements.

"A few years ago the notion of message archiving and e-discovery was something only publicly traded companies, or companies subject to regulatory scrutiny, had to deal with," comments The I.T. Pros' president, Doug Ford. "But in today's market of electronic communication, the need to archive and search for proprietary corporate information is something that should be on the minds of all business owners."

Smarsh's managed archiving service gives principal reviewers -- whether management, legal team, human resources, IT department or compliance officer -- the ability to securely and reliably organize, index, retrieve, store and protect the company's electronic communication.

"The I.T. Pros' approach to business is based on a commitment to customer satisfaction, a mission that is inherent in everything that we do at Smarsh," said Smarsh founder and CEO Stephen Marsh. "The I.T. Pros have listened to their client base and are in turn offering an industry-leading archiving solution. We look forward to providing solutions and extending our service commitment to customers who have come to trust The I.T. Pros."

The partnership is effective immediately, and The I.T. Pros' clients are already enjoying the added ease and security with which they can retrieve necessary email communications.
