08/31/2007 - NDM Offers Information Archiving

The burgeoning quantity of electronically stored information (ESI) is starting to mirror the old time stuffed-to-the-gills paper file cabinets. E-mail -- some valuable, some not – clogs many a mail server, especially in enterprise level companies. Quantities of corporate lore reside in that e-mail, and deleting it is not an option. Losing it due to server failure is equally daunting. Network Design and Management (NDM) has a solution – e-mail archiving. NDM is a local provider of IT infrastructure and security services.

Working with partners, Messaging Architects and Barracuda, NDM hosts an archiving system that stores ESI for up to ten years. The information is easily indexed and searchable, and cannot be deleted. All sorts of parameters are available to run a search – key words, person, “sounds like”, a range of dates, and almost any other possibility. When the search is complete, the information can be copied, burned to a CD, and sent to the requesting party. The speed of the search will depend on the hardware and on just how much data is being sought.

Being able to search a quantity of amassed e-mails has become especially important in our litigation-loving climate. The Washington open records law means that records must be provided if requested. Government agencies and schools are not exempt. Without archiving, the requested information may demand a lot of resources – especially time and personnel – to conduct the search. NDM’s archiving system speeds and eases the pain of the legal discovery process.

According to Dusty Miller, President of NDM, there are three major benefits to their system. Using archiving frees both technology and staff resources. Archiving helps compliance with HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, SRCD and other mandated regulations. It makes searching for mail easier – making it into a true information base, not just a repository.

According to Miller, there is a lot of interest both locally and nationally. “It is another tool – a technology that can help IT systems run better,” says Miller. “It also helps companies keep in control of their internal security by allowing a search for inappropriate e-mails. The system isn’t expensive, and it pays for itself easily.”

NDM sells, installs, and maintains the system. Based in the Bennett Block on the downtown Skywalk, NDM has seven employees and provides services throughout the Northwest and across the nation.
