Leverages Existing Storage Infrastructures, Stores Source Files in Customer-Specified Locations Including Local SAN, Remote Data Centers, Private and Public Clouds

Shreveport, LA, Nov. 30, 2011 –/– ArcMail Technology, Inc. today announced the ArcMail Defender Cloud Storage Gateway, a new breed of gateway technology that combines unparalleled storage platform flexibility with instant search and retrieval and datacenter cost savings to give businesses an innovative, secure way to optimize their overall communications and data archiving initiatives.

Now available, the Defender Cloud Storage Gateway leverages an organization’s existing storage infrastructure to provide both cost savings and convenience. It indexes and stores up to 8TB of search data locally to deliver the industry’s fastest search and retrieval speeds. The remainder is stored as original source files on one or more remote storage platforms of the customer’s choosing – still easily searchable and within reach – giving them the opportunity to meet their specific requirements for scalability, security and vendor choice. ArcMail utilizes encryption on the source data to ensure highly secure remote storage.

This customer-configurable “near store” and “far store” approach allows IT departments to designate parameters for the files they want securely available at their fingertips at breakneck speeds, while also taking advantage of the datacenter cost savings that cloud storage allows.

The Defender Cloud Storage Gateway works with storage area networks (SAN), file systems and popular platforms such as Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files, Windows® Azure, OpenStack™ and PostgreSQL®. Users can selectively search any combination of content types via the device including server-based email; hosted email such as Google Apps™, LiveOffice™ and Microsoft® Office 365;™ Chatter; instant messages; Adobe® PDF files; and web pages.

Access to this complete spectrum of data across multiple storage platforms is available via a single easy-to-use ArcMail interface, making data discovery both simple and efficient for busy IT administrators, chief legal officers and other users.

“CIOs today often rely upon a number of storage platforms, but until now, an easy-to-deploy centralized archiving solution that supports all of them while also delivering instant search capabilities across a full range of content types has simply not been available,” said Rory Welch, CEO of ArcMail. “Especially as cloud storage use grows and data security risks increase, a heightened need exists for organizations to properly address data discovery and protection issues.”

With the Defender Cloud Storage Gateway, document files are automatically indexed and the resulting metadata and full text data is securely stored on the device behind the corporate firewall.

Adds Welch, “Not having immediate access to sensitive data – no matter where it resides – can be potentially damaging or costly. Yet many organizations today have failed to deploy effective archiving and retrieval solutions that take into account the entire scope of their storage initiatives.”

ArcMail Lets Customers Avoid Vendor Lock-In
The Defender Cloud Storage Gateway is designed to bring increased flexibility to enterprise information archiving. A key advantage of the solution is that archived source documents may be moved from one location to another as necessary to let customers take advantage of emerging technologies and to avoid vendor lock-in.

Universal Archiving Strategy Demonstrates Industry Leadership
The Defender Cloud Storage Gateway represents yet another step in ArcMail’s strategy to demonstrate market leadership through delivery of universal archiving solutions. ArcMail has launched a string of innovative products this year including an archiving appliance for Chatter, the real-time enterprise collaboration platform; ArcMail Guardian, an email archiving solution for Google Apps email; and ArcMail for Instant Messaging, a new IM archiving appliance that works with all the most popular IM platforms including Yahoo!®, AOL Instant Messenger® (AIM) and MSN®.

The Defender Cloud Storage Gateway is now available for order through ArcMail resellers across North America. For more information, visit
