EMC Corporation, a provider of information management and storage, has unveiled EMC Documentum Archive Services for Email and EMC Documentum Archive Services for Reports software. The new products leverage capabilities from the EMC Documentum content management technology and are products based on a unified archiving platform.

EMC Documentum Archive Services for Email captures and archives all incoming and outgoing email messages to ensure compliance with regulations and internal email policies. Enhanced compliance capabilities enable customers to validate email compliance to regulators and the courts. In the event of litigation, investigators can search the archive and deliver high volumes of messages, with assurance that the chain of custody is intact. Together, Archive Services for Email and EMC EmailXtender comprise EMC's set of email archiving software. While Archive Services for Email suits customers needing to archive email and other content types, while also applying a set of related services, EmailXtender is for customers who need only to archive email for compliance or storage optimization reasons. EMC Documentum Archive Services for Reports captures large volumes of computer-generated reports from enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, invoices, statements, bills, as well as system-generated content from wireless devices, debit cards, and Web services. The content is converted into ISO-standard PDF-A format for long-term preservation, retention policy management, and lifecycle-managed storage. EMC Documentum Archive Services for Email and EMC Documentum Archive Services for Reports are available immediately. Prices vary by configuration.
