Tackling email complexity
We take the pain out of handling your organization’s most important data: the information that passes through your email systems.
When we started out ten years ago, we saw what others didn’t - that while corporate email was increasingly being used as the primary store for critical business information, it was also becoming more complex; fragmented, less reliable and ever more costly. What had started out as a simple business tool was becoming hard to manage – and creating risk for businesses.
Making email work again
Our solution was to cut through the complexity of corporate email. We built a platform from scratch that uses cloud computing to deliver email management – slashing on-premise storage requirements, ensuring complete continuity, security and compliance, and providing services to help you get more from business email.
It takes only days to implement, it delivers everything though one interface and it gives you the choice of where you deploy Exchange – on-premise and under your control, or hosted by a third party.
In simple terms, we put businesses back in control of their email and got their information working for them again.

The future of your business’s data
Everything we’ve done since has been designed to take the pain out of information management and make the next generation of technology work better for our customers.
We were the first to offer a complete email management package, the first to deliver it using Software as a Service, and the first to provide email continuity for BlackBerry users.
And, while our unified approach to email management is delivering for over 5,000+ customers worldwide, we’re already working on the next challenge: extending our platform to all unstructured data.
