(PRWEB) November 18, 2004
Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading outsourced technology provider to the financial services industry, announced today a new SEC compliant archiving solution that provides secure and efficient archival of email and instant messaging (IM) records for hedge funds.
ÂEmail and instant messaging are pervasive in our hedge fund client base,Â said Chris Grandi, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Eze Castle Integration. ÂWe believe that our solution is the most cost-effective and efficient means of implementing email and IM archiving measures that meet tough SEC regulations.Â
The Eze Castle Integration Email & IM solution includes software components from iLumin Software Services, Inc. and IMlogic that handle archiving, indexing and retrieval tasks. Archiving is achieved by transferring a copy of each email and IM to a secure third-party facility. Records are stored at this facility in regulation-compliant electronic format and are indexed for easy and quick retrieval. To retrieve archived data, authorized parties may use any standard web browser.
ÂWe had always believed that keeping track of email and IM records was a costly proposition,Â said Michael Maestas, Analyst at Avalon Global Asset Management. ÂHowever, Eze CastleÂs Email & IM Archiving solution has shown us that we can easily transition our email & IM business practices to be in line with SEC regulations without any adverse effects on our day-to-day operations.Â
In addition to its Email & IM archiving solution, Eze Castle Integration offers extensive services that range from start-up installation to Internet connectivity. The company provides computer and telephone setup, administration and troubleshooting, full-time help desk support, remote monitoring of servers, data backup, anti-virus protection, preventative maintenance, software updates, management of third-party vendors, and procurement of hardware and software.
