Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2004
Waterford Technologies, Inc., the only provider of Intelligent Email Management solutions, today introduced MailMeter MBA (Mail Box Analysis), an advanced email analysis and reporting software that improves organizational performance. MailMeter MBA makes it easier than ever for IT managers to understand how employees create and use email by reporting on email volumes, sender information, folder names, attachment types, email aging, and more with a drill-down, visual representation of the data. Even if all email spam were blocked, internally created emails can contain copyrighted music and video files, trade secrets, harassment evidence, and other inappropriate content. Spam and viruses are serious nuisances, but these email-based threats can put a company out of business.
Many employees use their email as a file storage system and simply never delete emails or outdated attachments. At the organizational level, this translates into extra storage costs, migration nightmares, archiving complexities and serious legal liabilities for the company, said Lorcan Kennedy, CTO, Waterford Technologies. MailMeter MBA can help the IT department truly measure to what degree email policies are being broken. By simply identifying the worst offenders, many organizations can immediately improve system performance by reducing email storage and bandwidth by up to 40 percent.
Because no other products provide such a complete view of both the high-level trends and the detailed contextual information that gives it meaning, most IT departments cannot uncover the risks, bottlenecks and policy breaches in their system. In fact, most IT departments have no idea such knowledge can be pulled from their email store. What they dont know can eventually come back to hurt their business. However, within a day of installing this new email management solution, MailMeter MBA customers have:
·Identified a person in their company with hundreds of illegal copies of music and movie files. He was disciplined and the email policy was revised.
·Eliminated 10 GB of sound files that were more than a year old.
·Identified a person in their company with over 33,000 unopened emails in her inbox folder.
·Identified a departmental sales email account with 300 unread emails less than three months old. There were qualified leads and potential revenue in this account.
·Identified a service department email where the emails were unopened for the most recent three weeks. It was discovered that the person in charge of answering customer queries had left the company three weeks ago.
As email volumes continue to skyrocket, organizations are quickly realizing the benefits of actively managing their email storage and usage. MailMeter MBA has set a new standard for email storage analysis with web-based reports on mail box activity, suspicious attachment types, and employee usage patterns. With its comprehensive email analytics displayed in easy-to-read online reports with point-and-click column sorting, administrators have the power to quickly drill-down into the details of their email database by simply browsing from the overview report. With column sorting, the most active, most interesting or most suspicious activities become immediately apparent and administrators simply continue clicking down the layers to get the full story. For example, the overview report automatically classifies suspicious files such as MP3s, and .exe files in the system. By simply drilling down, it can display which employees have the most of these files in their account, in which folder, and how long they have been there.
For organizations that are migrating to MS Exchange 2003, MailMeter MBA is an ideal resource for assisting with accurate planning. Kennedy continues, MailMeter MBA delivers high impact reports so your migration team sees the real story for planning and resource requirements. They will be able to determine which users can be grouped together, which mailboxes to purge, which users need housekeeping assistance, and what total server impact can be expected. We are confident that MailMeter MBA will provide customers with immediate visibility of how they can better use their email resources.
MailMeter MBA allows organizations to understand whats in their email system like never before and to make management and policy changes to improve business performance.
