Messaging Architects* GWArchive Confirms Its Position as the Leading Email Retention & Compliance Solution for GroupWise

Montreal, Canada - May 23, 2007 - Messaging Architects, the leader in risk management software and services for enterprise email with solutions that optimize the performance, availability and security of organizations' collaboration infrastructures and solve their business-critical needs by ensuring a stable, secure, and compliant messaging environment, has been positioned in Gartner*s 2007 E-mail Active Archiving Magic Quadrant Report. Gartner, the leading IT research and advisory firm with more than 45,000 clients worldwide, surveys companies annually against numerous criteria, including the vendor's vision, market understanding, marketing and sales strategy and execution, innovation, customer references and track record. To be considered an enterprise email active-archiving vendor, the solution must have the capability for automated mailbox management and compliance capture, including 100% email retention, whether for legal discovery reasons or for the unique compliance supervision requirements of the financial industry.

"We are very pleased to be included the Magic Quadrant again and we firmly believe this is further recognition for our product and our company, as the number of GWArchive deployments continues to grow steadily," said Pierre Chamberland, CEO of Messaging Architects. "The fact that GWArchive is the only GroupWise-centric solution to be included in the Magic Quadrant confirms our leading position in the GroupWise space and validates the investments we undertook in redesigning the GWArchive architecture to deliver an innovative identity-based and policy-driven comprehensive solution to our clients in government, healthcare, education and corporate business."

Messaging Architects' email archiving and compliance software, GWArchive, helps companies solve the issues of e-discovery, compliance, auditing, storage, and uptime that can affect their email and collaboration systems by providing an advanced policy-based directory-services enabled engine to automatically manage the electronic data stored in their messaging system and make it easily available in cases of litigation. By offering complete ILM for electronic records stored in their messaging systems, organizations dramatically reduce operating costs due to growing email storage requirements, eliminate legal liabilities, and improve employee productivity by enabling the enforcement of corporate policies.
