Email Archiving Service Added to the Cyren Cloud Security Platform

Cyren, a provider of DNS, email, and web security solutions, has announced the inclusion of a new email archiving service in its Cloud Security Platform. The platform can be used to keep business email messages secure while ensuring compliance with state and federal email retention regulations.

Cyren’s Security-as-a-Service platform combines web security, email security, DNS security, cloud sandboxing, and email archiving into a single cloud-based platform that can be accessed, monitored, and managed through a single web-based administration control panel.

The new release comes in response to requests by customers to provide complimentary services to the platform related to email management. Being cloud-based, the solution allows additional services to be easily rolled out to customers, something that would not be possible with appliance-based solutions.

The latest addition helps organizations meet their email management compliance obligations, safely and securely store vast quantities of emails without the need for on-premises storage, and ensures all messages can be quickly and easily retrieved in the event of disaster, a compliance audit, and to meet legal discovery requirements.

The solution reduces the man hours required for email management, compliance, and message retrieval and has excellent scalability. The service includes secure, tamper-proof email storage that preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of emails and attachments. The solution maintains an audit trail of user access necessary for compliance with HIPAA and other industry regulations and to meet requirements for corporate investigations and litigation purposes.

The search and eDiscovery features generate search results in under two seconds and subject access requests in minutes and simplifies user mailbox management, reducing the need for complex PST management and mailbox size control.

The solution is one of a growing number of cloud-based email archiving options, which are now the preferred method of storing email data. 80% of new and replacement email archiving solutions are now cloud based according to Gartner.
