Privacy Networks, the unified messaging archive company, today announced they have made their industry leading PrivacyVault solution available through the E-Rate program for schools and libraries. The Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund has officially approved Privacy Networks as a participant in the E-Rate program and granted them a SPIN number. School districts have been barraged by an onslaught of management headaches that arise from the need to archive, search and retrieve communications that are hosted by the district. The need to meet open records requests, protect students from improper email attacks and abuse, and ease of management are causing school districts to spend large amounts of time and money to address these burgeoning issues.

Privacy Networks shares the concern that all schools face in today's digital world. Email has become an essential tool in enhancing communications through the educational process. Now more than ever, administration and faculty rely on the use of email as a fast, efficient and effective tool for all facets of the educational process.

The Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, commonly known as "E-Rate," provides discounts to assist most schools and libraries in the United States to obtain affordable telecommunications and Internet access. Qualifying Schools can receive up to 90% reimbursement for the puchase of approved products like PrivacyVault from Privacy Networks.

"At Privacy Networks we are proud to be an essential and trusted partner to educators and students, We feel it is our duty to help school districts protect and better manage the student's email," noted Steve Berens, President and CEO of Privacy Networks. "We are excited to bring the benefits of our enterprise class software to schools at a reduced net cost."

The majority of organizations critical information is contained within their email inboxes. School districts are facing the challenge of retaining, searching and archiving this key digital asset. Accelerating the need for email archiving are the recent changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCPs) as well as the expanding State and local regulations regarding open records. All organizations are now impacted if they cannot retrieve the content housed within email in a rapid and simple manner.

Privacy Networks' products are specifically designed to support all the major email platforms (Exchange, Domino, GroupWise and others) by simplifying the way email is captured, stored, indexed and retrieved. As a result, customers are able to implement a solution quickly and drastically reduce their costs over time. PrivacyVault is an email archiving solution that provides users with a simple search engine for all their email. Finding and retrieving any email or attachment is now as easy as a search on the Internet. Searches can be performed for a single PrivacyVault user retrieving their email or an administrator searching across an entire organization's email.
