Fortiva Inc. the Greenwich, Conn. e-mail archiving software developer, today at the Demo conference in Scottsdale, Ariz. unveiled the Fortiva Archiving & Compliance Suite, a hybrid application suite and managed service for e-mail archiving, compliance and legal discovery.

Integrating with Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory, the suite consists of five components including Fortiva Policy, Fortiva Archive, Fortiva Discovery, Fortiva Supervision, and Fortiva Reports. Featuring its patent-pending DoubleBlind Encryption technology, Fortiva said the new suite offers businesses the benefits of an in-house product with the advantages of a managed solution.

Before being sent to the Fortiva Network, every e-mail message is encrypted by a Fortiva Appliance that resides within the customer's network, behind corporate firewalls. Data is then sent in encrypted form to Fortiva's network, where it is stored. Fortiva maintains the data, but does not have the encryption keys needed to view the content. The Fortiva Appliance at the customer site holds the encryption keys but not the data. As a result, data is only accessible by the customer, with access to both the Fortiva Appliance and the Fortiva Network.

"When you're dealing with something as critical as managing legal risks and regulatory compliance, you need to rely on experts. Fortiva gives you that expertise on the archiving side, while giving your in-house experts hands-on control of compliance, search and discovery, and e-mail management," said Paul Chen, president and CEO of Fortiva. "Our browser-based interface makes it easy for staff to make changes to policy, conduct searches for personal productivity or discovery purposes, and monitor compliance, without placing an additional burden on you IT staff."
