Email Server Feature: Email Archiving Market to Hit $5.1 Billion in 2013

By Amy Tierney, TMCnet Web Editor

As more and more businesses use email as one of their primary forms of communication, companies are quickly realizing the importance of archiving those messages. And software companies like Lexington, Mass.-based Ipswitch Inc. are benefitting.

According to a recent study by The Radicati Group, Inc., the total email archiving market, which includes both on-premises and hosted email archiving solutions, is expected to grow from nearly $2.1 billion in 2009, to more than $5.1 billion in 2013. What’s more, about 75 percent of all archiving solutions are being sold as on-premises products, whereas 25 percent of archiving solutions are sold as hosted services, the survey found.
The "Email Archiving Market, 2009-2013" study offers market size, installed base and revenue market share by vendor, four-year forecasts, email traffic and storage statistics for the email archiving market. The study also highlights legislative and technology issues, and includes a survey of corporate deployment and procurement plans.
Companies are using email archiving solutions to monitor employee communications and store messages. In addition, email archiving helps firms comply with state and federal regulations, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act.
 Implementing an archival system helps businesses better manage a large amount of email and file attachments, Ipswitch (News - Alert) officials said. Email archiving not only aids in data storage and retrieval, but it also saves space on email servers. Those are just a few reasons why Ipswitch is seeing an uptick in its hosted and installed email archiving solutions.
For example, the company’s hosted solution, Sonian Hosted Email Archiving, is designed to accommodate compliance archiving, as well as storage resource management. The solution uses the Amazon cloud to archive incoming, outgoing and internal email. Administrators or third-parties can search and retrieve email from an intuitive control panel.  The affordable and scalable service is available for organizations of all sizes, Ipswitch said.

For companies looking for an installed solution, Ipswitch’s MailArchiva Enterprise Edition works with popular mail systems and archives all incoming, outgoing and internal email. The solution lives on a file system, as opposed to a database, which organizations can easily access. It also helps companies comply with regulatory issues, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Ipswitch said.
