Tangent Launches DataCove Hosted Email Archival Service

First and Only Solutions Provider to Offer Choice of Appliance or Online

Options Hold Appeal for Resellers and Users Alike

BURLINGAME, Calif., Sept. 22 /- Tangent, Inc., a leading provider of innovative technology solutions, today announced the availability of a hosted version of its award-winning DataCove email archival appliance.

Literally any school, government agency, commercial enterprise and non-profit organization must archive and store email in order to be in compliance with legal e-discovery requirements. Along with emails, instant messaging (IM) and digital faxes have to be similarly maintained and accessible. The exponential growth of these communications forms makes this a challenging task, especially given the estimated 5,000 different regulations that are now in force in the United States alone.

"Tangent's hosted email archival service brings the quality, performance and cost-effectiveness of its DataCove email archival appliance to more sizes and types of organizations as well as to those value-added resellers who seek an online option to email archival," said Edward Alexei, Tangent's vice president of IT solutions. "No other independent email archival solutions provider has shown the willingness or the capability to deliver both choices. Having an appliance and, now, a hosted service reflects Tangent's commitment to hear the market and act on its demands."

The DataCove hosted email archival service gathers and organizes all email and attachments in a central repository located in Tangent facilities with fault-tolerant, secure servers to ensure uninterrupted service and the most stringent protection. It offers a fully searchable database with intuitive menus for easy use and retrieval. Like DataCove's appliance, the hosted service archives email produced from such systems as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Novell Groupwise, First Class, Standard POP3 or IMAP and SMTP

"The DataCove email archival solution is truly a win-win-win one, for Tangent, INS and my customers," said David Lockhart, president of Integrators of New Systems, a DataCove reseller. "The introduction of a hosted service better enables me to serve businesses with 300 or fewer users but who still need a highly effective email archival solution. For customers with more users but who simply prefer an off-site option, DataCove lets me meet their needs as well. Of course, by having an appliance or a hosted solution, Tangent's DataCove options put me in a position to handle any customer, regardless of the preference."

The addition of the hosted solution also represents Tangent's stepped up efforts to expand its DataCove Channel Partner Program. "The new email archival option further enhances a reseller's ability to market and benefit from well-regarded, fully-compliant email and IM archiving solutions," Alexei said. "It also means that resellers who want in on this strong growth market can do so without making an investment in support capabilities."

Tangent expects the DataCove hosted solution to quickly establish a similar track record to that of its email archival appliance. The company notes that even in a crowded email archival market, 3 out of 4 customers that evaluated DataCove email archival solutions became satisfied DataCove customers.
