GFI MailArchiver enables Android, BlackBerry and iPhone users to access archived email, says company
Software security company GFI Software has released several enhancements to GFI MailArchiver, an email archiving and management offering used by small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) worldwide.
GFI MailArchiver allows employees to have quick and easy access to all their archived email via their smartphones, including any Android-powered device, BlackBerry or iPhone, said the company.
GFI MailArchiver now also includes customisable retention controls for IT administrators. They can now specify which emails and attachments to retain by size and file type, as well as define how long various file types — including large multimedia files — will remain archived to conserve storage resources, said the company.
GFI Software Infrastructure Business Unit general manager Phil Bousfield said the way SMBs use email is changing as smartphone adoption explodes and more employees gain access to corporate email via personal or work-issued mobile devices.
"That creates new email management headaches for IT administrators, with employees demanding uninterrupted access to all their email while using smartphones with different operating systems and inconsistent email retention and storage limitations. GFI MailArchiver addresses this new challenge by providing users quick and easy access to all archived email through their smartphones," Bousfield said.
