"Today's enterprises are looking to cut costs and improve efficiency without sacrificing quality or security and Swisscom's customers expect the highest levels of service quality, availability and stability," said Roger Wüthrich-Hasenböhler, head of marketing and sales for Swisscom Corporate Business. "As a high-security, high-performance, low total-cost-of-ownership solution, Proofpoint's email archiving product was the perfect fit for our portfolio of cloud-based services."
"Proofpoint's SaaS solutions for email archiving, security and data loss prevention are an ideal value added offering for service providers and ISPs looking to broaden their cloud-based service portfolios," said Peter Galvin, chief marketing officer for Proofpoint.

Proofpoint ARCHIVE is a SaaS solution that makes it easy for organizations to securely archive email and solve the storage management, legal discovery and regulatory compliance challenges associated with email retention. Proofpoint ARCHIVE delivers the performance, scalability and cost savings of SaaS while providing the highest levels of security for each organization's archived data.
Proofpoint's patented DoubleBlind Encryption ensures that customer data is fully protected both in transit and in the cloud, while still providing full search and discovery capabilities. Proofpoint's grid storage and search architecture ensures high-speed search results for Proofpoint ARCHIVE users. Search results are returned in just seconds, regardless of the size of a customer's archive, with near-instantaneous search results guaranteed by Proofpoint ARCHIVE's service level agreements.
Proofpoint ARCHIVE's centralized, searchable, policy-based archive ensures that customers are always ready for litigation and regulatory audit requests and the solution makes it easy to create and enforce the legal holds required during eDiscovery. At the same time, it makes email end-users more productive by providing easy, self-service access to all of their historical email. IT administrators benefit from improved email system performance and simplified email system management through features including automated removal of large attachments ("stubbing") and PST file elimination.
