New York, NY (Vocus) May 5, 2010
Computer Generated Solutions Inc. (CGS) announces the general availability of Unlimited Mailbox™ for Microsoft® Live@Edu for the primary and secondary education market. The new cloud-based email archiving and e-discovery service provides educational institutions with advanced email management, and e-discovery capabilities in a convenient, easy-to-deploy, and always up-to-date software-as-a-service solution. Unlimited Mailbox gives these organizations the power and freedom they need to communicate and collaborate safely and cost-effectively, while ensuring efficient regulatory e-communications compliance.
“We are pleased to bring our leading-edge email management and e-discovery capabilities to Live@Edu program participants”, stated Michael Wilding, Senior Vice President of Technology and Solutions at CGS. “This exciting technology helps educational institutions leverage the simplicity and benefits of cloud computing to ensure that their email communication and collaboration is always safe, secure, and compliant. Of course, the robust e-discovery tools are of major importance to any group that is subject to legal and public records requests and regulations.”
Educational institutions already using Unlimited Mailbox are reporting significant reductions in IT and administrative time, complexity, and cost with the new service.
“Working with the Unlimited Mailbox hosted service is so much simpler and more effective than our previous in-house solution. After only a few days of setup, we are already freeing up key resources to focus on our academic program rather than computing infrastructure. Where we once managed servers and disk space, we now simply provision mailboxes. Unlimited Mailbox provided the critical archiving and e-discovery capabilities we needed to make our Live@Edu program a perfect fit for our school.” – stated Lee Norris, Director of IT at Pfeiffer University.
Unlimited Mailbox is a complete email management solution that requires no costly add-on modules or hardware. It provides automated message archiving, on-demand access, fast and easy search and retrieval, automatic backup and recovery solutions. It incorporates a powerful set of e-discovery tools including redaction of sensitive, private and protected information, classification tagging, workflow management and alerts, access tracking and custom reporting for fact review and trial preparation.
This special edition of Unlimited Mailbox is designed to seamlessly integrate with the Microsoft Outlook® Live e-mail service that is built on Exchange 2010 and included in the Microsoft Live@Edu solution. The popular Microsoft program offers educational institutions free hosted, co-branded communication and collaboration services for students, faculty, and alumni.
