Version 2.1 of ComplianceVault06™ Software Responds to Growing Customer Needs in Email/IM Compliance and Legal Discovery.

Intradyn (, the leader in simple, affordable solutions for automated email compliance, announced today it has released a major update to the software of its email archiving appliance for small to midsized businesses (SMBs).

Software features added are in direct response to meeting customer needs since the initial release of the ComplianceVault06™ in September 2005. The version 2.1 upgrade is now available to all 2.0 customers from the “Software Updates” section of the Web interface of their ComplianceVault06™ appliance, and is available for immediate download by these customers.

The ComplianceVault06™ is an integrated hardware/software, plug-and-play network appliance that captures all of a company’s email on a continuous basis, from a virtually unlimited number of email boxes. Originally introduced by Intradyn in June 2004, the device stores email on both hard disk and tape – including unalterable “WORM” (write once, read many) tape media, either internally or via an external tape library. The appliance allows companies to meet a variety of email retention needs, whether related to regulatory compliance (SEC 17a-3 and 17a-4, NASD 3110, FDA 21 CFR Part 11, HIPAA, etc), or simply for good business practice in electronic records management – as relates the requirements of the Sarbanes Oxley Act, for example. The ComplianceVault™ also allows for rapid searching of email and instant messages to vastly improve responsiveness to litigation discovery requests.

“This major software update was carefully designed and implemented to meet existing customer application requirements, as well as to scale for their future needs,” said Brent Bowlby, Intradyn CEO. “It is available to users of all models of the ComplianceVault06™ Version 2.0, whether desktop or rackmount hardware platform. And, of course, we’re delighted to be including this version of the software in all our new product shipments, beginning immediately.“

New features that are part of the Version 2.1 release of the ComplianceVault06™ Email Archiving & Retrieval Appliance include:

  • Upgraded search architecture to increase speed of searches
  • The ability to schedule saved searches (to automatically run at a given time)
  • User-specified domain email addresses are automatically added to the list for easy searching
  • The ability to export the Audit Log
  • New options to Saved Search dates
  • International character support (to enable use beyond Western European language applications)

Customers with questions about the software upgrade process may contact Intradyn by emailing or by calling 651-556-4336. For sales-related questions about the ComplianceVault06™ appliances, please email or call 651-556-4318.

The ComplianceVault06™ is the industry's first email archiving appliance that employs corporate policies to index and organize messages to help companies comply with legal and regulatory requirements for records retention, reduces the cost and complexity of archiving email by eliminating space-wasting spam and duplicated email content, and categorizes messages for easy search and retrieval. Bundling indexing, management software, and storage hardware in a single easy-to-deploy appliance, the ComplianceVault06™ can be quickly attached to virtually any email server that uses the industry-standard protocols of POP3 or IMAP. Administrators can set policies for archiving based on sender, recipient, spam or virus score, department, or keyword content for any message. Working in conjunction with the leading enterprise IM solutions (IMlogic or Akonix), the ComplianceVault06™ can also archive instant messages to ensure compliance with various regulatory requirements.

By combining policy-driven email and IM management, storage, and archival into an all-in-one appliance form factor, the ComplianceVault06™ is an ideal solution for meeting regulatory requirements, as well as providing the critical capability of retrieving messages quickly for legal or HR purposes.

According to a recent study by IDC, explosive growth in email message stores and attachments, rising interest in email discovery and litigation support, and increased attention to regulatory compliance and corporate governance issues continue to drive robust demand for email archiving solutions, which generated revenues exceeding $310 million worldwide in 2005. Another research firm, The Radicati Group, projects the email archiving market will reach $4.4 billion by 2009.

Ease-of-Use Simplifies Archiving

Other email archiving systems require proprietary interfaces or inefficient SMTP interfaces to the email server, which can be intrusive, reduce performance, and inhibit scalability. In contrast, the ComplianceVault™ logs in securely and passively in the background, behaving as any other client would, then processes the messages in a separate, dedicated appliance. After the messages are secure in the archive, they can be erased from the email server or retained, depending on the administrator's policy settings.

The ComplianceVault™ archives messages between users in the same organization, between users in specific departments, as well as all messages that leave or enter the enterprise. To manage archival policies across different users, roles, and departments, the ComplianceVault™ can, for example, be set to aggregate messages from top executives, the HR department, instant messaging, external email addresses, or mobile devices into separate archives.

To ensure fast and easy retrieval of messages, the ComplianceVault06™ includes high-performance searching and restoration and allows messages to be exported in common .zip format. For added security, the ComplianceVault06™ offers encrypted tape backup, via 256-bit AES “strong” encryption.

Pricing and Availability

Version 2.1 of the ComplianceVault06™ appliance is available in either a desktop or 1U rackmount hardware platform, with on-board disk storage ranging from 120 gigabytes to 1 terabyte. List prices start at $7995. The product may be ordered through distribution, or through Intradyn’s network of resellers. For more information send email.
