Basingstoke, UK - October 1, 2013
Intermedia, the world’s largest one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business applications, enhanced its Office in the Cloud™ suite of services in EMEA with legally compliant email archiving. This service helps businesses cope with two growing challenges: the continually rising volume of email coupled with the growing set of industry regulations and legal risks compelling businesses to retain communications in perpetuity.
Intermedia’s cloud-based Email Archiving service provides the perfect solution for protecting the institutional knowledge contained in an organisation’s email. By integrating email storage, security and recovery features, Email Archiving alleviates pressures on business and IT leaders to preserve intellectual property, simplify legal eDiscovery, and assure compliance with regulatory requirements including those set out, for example, by the UK’s FCA, PRA and legislation such as the Data Protection Act of 1998.
“Compliant Email Archiving adds protection against legal and regulatory issues beyond the data security, backup and reliability levels for which Intermedia is already known,” says Ed Macnair, Managing Director, EMEA. “Our cloud already assures business continuity for all of our customers. Email Archiving adds to that by storing emails in a EU-based, tamper-proof data center so they are formally admissible as evidence, compliant with industry regulations and protected against accidental or intentional deletion by employees.”
Archived email is easily accessed and managed using Intermedia’s HostPilot control panel. HostPilot empowers administrators with all of the control they’d expect from an on-premise deployment. For example, they can sync Intermedia’s cloud services with their on-premise Active Directory. In addition, VARs, MSPs and other partners use HostPilot to rapidly design, customize and deploy their own private-labeled cloud offerings.
Email Archiving for EMEA builds upon Intermedia’s recent acquisition of UK identity and access management vendor, SaaSID. In addition to strengthening Intermedia’s commitment to protecting EMEA customers data, Intermedia now provides all of its customers with a single point of control over their employees' access to cloud services and applications and minimizes the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data.
Intermedia is the world’s largest one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business applications. Its Office in the Cloud™ delivers the essential services that SMBs need to do business – including hosted Exchange, Hosted PBX, SecuriSync file sync and share, security, mobility and more.
All of Intermedia’s services are pre-integrated for a seamless user experience. They’re all managed via Intermedia’s HostPilot® control panel, with just one login, one password, one bill and one source of support – creating tremendous cross-service efficiencies for both users and IT administrators.
