Original Press Release:
Fortiva Launches the First Ever Hybrid Solution for Secure Email Archiving, Compliance, and Legal Discovery
Fortiva Archiving & Compliance Suite Offers Self-Service Approach for Compliance Officers, Senior Management, HR and Legal Staff, Reducing Burden on IT
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 14 -- Fortiva Inc. today announced the first availability of its hybrid solution for email archiving, compliance and legal discovery. Featuring patent-pending DoubleBlind Encryption(TM) technology, The Fortiva Archiving & Compliance Suite(TM) offers businesses the benefits of an in-house product with the clear advantages of a managed solution. The product was unveiled onstage at DEMO@15, one of the most important forums to learn about new technologies that exemplify and lead emerging trends.
The Fortiva Archiving & Compliance Suite(TM) consists of five components, including Fortiva Policy, Fortiva Archive, Fortiva Discovery, Fortiva Supervision, and Fortiva Reports. Integrating with Microsoft(R) Exchange and Active Directory(R), the Suite provides businesses with complete data privacy in an easy-to-implement, easy-to-use application with real-time search and discovery, supervision and enforcement features.
"Email archiving is an issue businesses can no longer afford to ignore," said Chris Shipley, a leading technology analyst and executive producer of the DEMO conferences. "Fortiva's innovative solution represents the next generation of tools that will give customers control over their data, helping them to easily meet the many regulatory compliance requirements and legal discovery needs without compromising data security."
Fortiva's unique hybrid model opens the door for companies to choose a managed solution without worrying about sharing their data with a third party. Before being sent to the Fortiva Network, every email is encrypted by a Fortiva Appliance that resides within the customer's network, behind corporate firewalls. Data is then sent in encrypted form to Fortiva's Network, where it is stored. Fortiva maintains the data, but does not have the encryption keys needed to view the content. The Fortiva Appliance at the customer site holds the encryption keys but not the data. As a result, data is only accessible by the customer, with access to both the Fortiva Appliance and the Fortiva Network.
"When you're dealing with something as critical as managing legal risks and regulatory compliance, you need to rely on experts. Fortiva gives you that expertise on the archiving side, while giving your in-house experts hands-on control of compliance, search and discovery, and email management," said Paul Chen, President and CEO of Fortiva. "Our browser-based interface makes it easy for staff to make changes to policy, conduct searches for personal productivity or discovery purposes, and monitor compliance, without placing an additional burden on you IT staff."
The annual DEMO conferences focus on emerging technologies and new products, which are hand-selected from across the spectrum of the technology marketplace. The DEMO conferences have earned their reputation for consistently identifying tomorrow's cutting-edge technologies and have served as launch pad events for companies such as Palm, E*Trade, Handspring, and U.S. Robotics, helping them to secure venture funding, establish critical business relationships, and influence early adopters. Each DEMO conference features approximately 70 new companies, products and technologies. For more information on the DEMO conferences, visit http://www.demo.com/.
