InBoxer Launches World's First Virtual Appliance For Email Archiving, Electronic Discovery, and Data Leaks
The first virtual appliance for email archiving, data leak detection, and the electronic discovery requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure was announced today by InBoxer, Inc., a leader in email protection products. The InBoxer Anti-Risk Virtual Appliance offers all of the features and capabilities of the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance at a fraction of the price.

With the InBoxer virtual appliance, companies from 1 to 5000 users can deploy hardware configurations that match their exact needs.

  • Large companies can benefit from virtualization's lower of the cost of capital (eliminates multiple hardware devices, rack space, etc.) and reduced the cost of operating the equipment (energy costs, support costs, etc.).
  • Smaller companies can take advantage of lower cost commodity systems and customize to meet their needs.
  • Educational institutions and other non-profits can lower their costs by purchasing commodity hardware using their discounts and group buying contracts.
  • Resellers can create products on the hardware platforms that they already support in the exact configurations their customers need.

"Many organizations know that they need email archiving and discovery tools right now to meet their legal obligations. Unfortunately, they have delayed deploying these systems because they could not afford the unbudgeted expense. InBoxer is lowering these costs and makes it possible to deploy email archiving and electronic discovery tools now," said Roger Matus, Chief Executive Officer of InBoxer, Inc.


"Regulations apply to companies of all sizes," said Dan Kusnetzky, Principal Analyst and President of the Kusnetzky Group and the author of the ZDnet Blog "Virtually Speaking." "InBoxer is combining their time tested software with virtual machine technology to bring a solution to small to medium sized companies that may not otherwise have the ability to meet the requirements of these regulations. . Their customers can benefit from the improved reliability, performance, scalability, and cost savings of virtual systems.

Mike Karp, senior analyst for Enterprise Management Associates added, "In order to comply with the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, every company must be able to find every email. The real-time content analysis provided by InBoxer's new offering means that email investigations and discovery can be completed significantly faster and at a lower cost than before."

The InBoxer Anti-Risk Virtual Appliance works with VMWare Server and Microsoft Virtual PC on a recent model Linux or Windows system. Email from Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes / Domino, Kerio, and other email systems are automatically copied and stored in their original format. InBoxer never alters the original email message, as required by discovery rules. InBoxer applies more than 70 tests to each message and finds potential violations of a broad range of compliance issues, including Sarbanes-Oxley, hostile work environment (harassment), privacy, identity theft laws, HIPAA violations, and more.

The InBoxer Anti-Risk Virtual Appliance is available immediately. Pricing starts at $99 per month and 99 cents per user per month, which makes it affordable for even smaller companies. Annual pricing plans are available.
