With the expansion of our SonaVault it enables us to address the demands that we are receiving in the market for our products by companies around 25 employees and larger.

SonaVault Archiving and protection delivers a new generation of email archiving solutions. SonaVault is a stand-alone, software based, powerful and comprehensive email archiving solution for Microsoft Exchange Server 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2010. It enables organizations to archive, search and retrieve emails to achieve regulatory compliance and operational excellence.

Key features of SonaVault include:

1. Storage Management

SonaVault for Email Archiving delivers a fully integrated portfolio of features and tools to lighten a data encumbered Exchange server. The resultant effect is an improved efficiency, performance, and better storage management solution.

SonaVault uses stub technology without any client side component installation to reduce the size of the Exchange Server by as much ninety percent (90%) in some cases. In this process, message contents including attachments are removed from the email and a pointer, namely stub is created in the email body which has a small footprint compared to the actual message size. This is transparent to the end-users who access emails through Outlook in the usual fashion. Stubbed emails when replied or forwarded, retrieve contents from the SonaVault Store instead of the Exchange Server, seamlessly to the end-user.

2. Continuous Email Archiving

This Patent Pending feature when used in conjunction with Sonasoft’s Exchange Replication product, Continuous Email Archiving can be achieved without the loss of emails even after the Primary Exchange Server switches over to the Standby Exchange Server. This is due to the fact that the Standby Exchange Server is always online with a pre-configured archiving agent which will start archiving as soon as it assumes the primary active role.

3. Secure and Guaranteed Archiving

The SonaVault solution employs reliable safeguards including encryption to ensure that the email is tamper-proof without the possibility of being altered. SonaVault uses Microsoft’s Journaling mechanism to extract and archive messages. This ensures that every message which goes out and enters an Exchange Server is archived even if the message is deleted by the user from his or her mailbox.

4. Regulatory Compliance Requirements

SonaVault for Email Archiving solution helps meet a wide variety of regulatory compliance requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), SEC requirements, PCI, FISMA, GLBA and many more worldwide governmental regulations.

5. PST Utility Included for archiving existing emails

The PST Utility helps you migrate all existing PST files, including PSTs created from Exchange Server 5.5 into the centralized archive database hence eliminating PST file proliferation
