E-mail Risk Management Software Provider to Embed Exalead's Award-Winning Unified Search Technology into its E-mail Archiving, Compliance and e-Discovery Solution

Exalead®, a global provider of search software for business and the Web, today announced an OEM agreement with Messaging Architects, a specialist in Risk Management software and services for enterprise e-mail systems.

Under the terms of the agreement, Messaging Architects will integrate the unified, secure exalead one:search platformTM into its enterprise-class GWArchive 3.5 solution, which is designed to help organizations address the challenges of e-mail retention, regulatory compliance, storage and retrieval.

"Exalead brings an innovative approach to search that enhances and complements our GWArchive solution and will bring even more value to our enterprise customers," said Pierre Chamberland, CEO of Messaging Architects. "After careful evaluation of several search and retrieval engines, Message Architects decided to select exalead one:search due to its superior technology that matches the level of sophistication of GWArchive, as well as the ease of integration with our software."

By embedding exalead one:search technology into GWArchive, customers will be able to quickly and easily retrieve archived e-mails through a unified user interface. GWArchive, which is designed for Novell Groupwise Collaboration software users, offers enterprise-class storage management, policy-based retention, full information lifecycle management for e-mail and long-term data portability.

"We are extremely excited that Message Architects has chosen Exalead as its search technology provider of choice," said François Bourdoncle, Exalead's co-founder, president and chief executive officer. "Through this relationship, Messaging Architects continues its commitment to its client base in providing them with the best solutions to help them meet their business requirements for a powerful, yet easy-to-use search capability that allows users to retrieve archived e-mails quickly and securely."

The exalead one:search platform is well-suited for GWArchive in that it automatically complies with an organization's existing security policy to prevent e-mail messages from being viewed or retrieved by employees without permission. In addition, Exalead's index does not require significant hardware investments, so customers can leverage their existing storage environment without compromising the application's performance.

Furthermore, exalead one:search offers several advanced search capabilities that allows users to find relevant information quickly, even if they do not know its exact location or the content within the e-mail. Users can narrow or broaden the search for a particular e-mail message based on keywords, date range, author and recipient, whether it had an attachment, or the text within an attachment, among other parameters. Exalead also offers a fuzzy matching capability that allows users to search phonetically.
