With budget discussions for the 2011-12 school year now underway, email archiving stands out as a technology tool that makes the grade as K-12 schools look for cost-effective ways to address rising regulatory demands and spiraling email storage requirements.

ArcMail Technology, Inc., a leading provider of email archiving and email management appliances that address multiple business issues, is building momentum in the education market as schools of all sizes recognize the benefits of email archiving for storing, retrieving, classifying and purging email to improve organizational efficiency and compliance practices.

“Schools have IT requirements just like any other organization, but they may face greater pressure to properly maintain and protect their email data due to unfortunate issues of the day, such as bullying and inappropriate content,” says Rory Welch, CEO of ArcMail. “ArcMail is seeing increased traction in this market as educational institutions -- both large and small --seek to put more robust email solutions in place.”

The Freedom of Information Act and open meeting laws create a demanding regulatory environment that can be challenging to navigate. The ArcMail Defender product line was designed to provide schools with an effective yet affordable solution that addresses these challenges through compliance with all government regulations.

The ArcMail Defender solutions:

  •     Integrate with all major email clients and servers
  •     Encrypt emails for transmission to and from the Defender
  •     Require no software licensing fees for adding users
  •     Provide hands-off archiving that doesn’t require additional IT resources

Beyond compliance, schools are making use of email archiving to not only provide instant access to stored email data, but to also alleviate the storage and performance burden on their primary mail servers.

ArcMail Makes the Grade at Calcasieu Parish Public Schools
With more than 37,000 students, Calcasieu Parish School System is one of the larger school systems in the state of Louisiana, and is considered by many to be the model district for technology implementation. When Calcasieu administrators determined they needed to improve email storage and retention practices, and find ways to save storage costs and make email retrieval much more efficient, they turned to ArcMail.

Notes Chris Mace, a network specialist with Calcasieu Parish School System, “ArcMail was an easy choice for us – it offered both price and performance advantages, along with full compliance with government regulations. Our Defender unit installed in less than 20 minutes, is easy to manage, and has proven to be a valuable addition to our technology environment.”

The Defender is also deployed within a number of other U.S. education institutions including Hacienda La Puente Unified School District, in the City of Industry, Calif.; and Garden Grove Unified School District, in Garden Grove, Calif.

The ArcMail Defender line of enterprise-class email archiving solutions is sold worldwide and includes eight appliances ranging in capacity from 500GB to 16TB, with larger customized solutions also available. Featuring a fault-tolerant open source design, multiple configuration options and archiving speeds of up to 500,000-plus messages per day, the ArcMail Defender line is priced starting at $2,899.
