More and more organizations are realizing the benefits of off-site, geographically distributed email archiving.  In the past, cost and complexity have been a barrier, particularly for smaller organizations. Today, with GFI MAX MailArchive service, enterprise email archive is easily implemented, highly cost-effective and nearly or completely maintenance-free.

Offloading email infrastructure

The ever-growing volume of email puts more and more strain on an organization’s email infrastructure. GFI MAX MailArchive relieves the burden on groaning email infrastructures, removing or delaying costly investments in hardware upgrades and saving the maintenance headaches of reliably maintaining important email.

Preserving intellectual property

Email contains some of the most valuable information within an organization, providing a record of internal and external communications across the company over a period of years. GFI MAX MailArchive’s advanced easy to use search mechanisms, along with manual or automatic tagging of messages, makes it simple for customers to find the information they are looking for.

Meeting regulatory requirements

For many organizations, government or industry regulations require the retention of email communications for years. GFI MAX MailArchive helps meet these requirements with message retention for up to 10 years, customizable retention policies, tamperproof storage and full audit logs.

Built-in availability

The cloud-based, geographically distributed infrastructure of GFI MAX MailArchive means that if disaster strikes, your valuable email history isn’t threatened. Messages can be exported from the archive service in EML, MBOX, or PST formats.

Preparing for disputes

When disputes or litigation occur, having a verifiable archive of email communications is often critical in proving who said what and when. The GFI MAX MailArchive Legal Hold feature allows selected messages to be retained past their normal retention period in order to meet legal preservation needs.

Simplified email management

When bundled with GFI MAX MailProtection, GFI MAX MailArchive provides an integrated solution and a single console for email security, email continuity, and email archive. End users can access quarantined messages, queued messages when their own email infrastructure is offline, and their archived messages, all in one place – while administrators similarly save time and money with one easily managed and comprehensive solution for email security.

How It Works:

Setting up GFI MAX MailArchive takes from just a few clicks to no more than 10 minutes, if you are new to GFI MAX Mail.

A fully hosted service, GFI MAX MailArchive, requires no hardware, software, or other infrastructure to maintain, and works seamlessly with virtually any existing email infrastructure.

Get going in minutes

Setting up GFI MAX MailArchive is as simple as identifying the accounts to archive, specifying  how long to archive messages and configuring  secure email communications between the service and the organization. 

Accounts can be established manually, or automatically synchronized with a customer’s Active Directory, LDAP server, or other identity management system. Unlike most other archive solutions, GFI MAX MailArchive can be enabled either for a full domain or for a subset of mailboxes within a given domain.

You choose archive duration

Messages can be archived for as little as three months or for as long as 10 years.  Organizations can apply multiple retention policies, such that certain types of messages (for example, service contracts) may be archived for a shorter or longer time than other messages.  Users can also set a "never delete" option against one or more messages with our Legal Hold feature.

Archives all internal, outbound and inbound mail

GFI MAX MailArchive typically “pulls” messages via a journaling feature.  On the mail server, a journaling mailbox records a copy of all messages sent to or from a domain. The GFI MAX MailArchive service connects to the server every few minutes and downloads messages from the journaling mailbox via a secure protocol. The service supports IMAP and IMAPS as well as SSL and TLS communications.

For customers using GFI MAX MailProtection, the process is even simpler, since the accounts already exist and the archive service already has access to inbound and outbound messages being sent through GFI MAX MailProtection.

Security and reliability are built-in

GFI MAX MailArchive securely stores messages using 256-bit AES encryption, in multiple geographically distributed datacenters so that messages are protected even in the event of an outage at a given datacenter. The service also uses checksums and other measures to ensure that all messages are reliably archived.

Easy to use

Archived messages are accessible via the GFI MAX Mail control panel, which features simple and advanced search functionality, along with message tagging, delegated access control, export capabilities, and customizable retention policies for different types of email messages.

The GFI MAX Mail control panel, along with all other end-user touch points, can be fully re-branded for an organization or its service provider. The GFI MAX Mail service also features hierarchical management capabilities to facilitate use by IT support companies and managed service providers.

Customers using GFI MAX MailProtection along with GFI MAX MailArchive benefit from a single integrated control panel for robust anti-spam/antivirus protection, always-on email continuity, and email archive. The enabling of the archive service for GFI MAX MailProtection customers is as simple as a few clicks.
