Santa Clara, Calif. — March 17, 2009 — Mimosa Systems, a leader in next-generation email and file archiving solutions, today announced that it has extended its enterprise email and file archiving solution, Mimosa NearPointTM, to offer complete content archiving, data protection and e-Discovery support for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Mimosa NearPoint for Office SharePoint Server 2007 provides the industry with an extensive content archive solution that delivers enhanced information management capabilities to address critical requirements for storage optimization, recovery, information access, and e-Discovery in a single offering.

The dramatic adoption and widespread proliferation of Office SharePoint Server 2007 farms is creating a growing challenge for enterprises trying to protect this vital content, control storage costs, and preserve and search across repositories in the face of stringent discovery requirements.

“Mimosa’s innovative solution, NearPoint for Office SharePoint Server 2007, delivers archiving, data protection and e-Discovery at a critical time when enterprises need to more effectively manage and control their Office SharePoint Server 2007 deployments,” said Laura DuBois, Research Director for Storage Software at IDC. “By integrating this increasingly pervasive application into a comprehensive archiving strategy early on, companies can enable compliance to both corporate governance and regulatory policies while keeping rising storage costs under control.”

According to Microsoft, Office SharePoint Server 2007 has seen a year-over-year growth of 35 percent, with over 100 million licensed seats shipped to over 17,000 customers since its introduction. The growth in document and information-related workloads that are being migrated to applications built on an Office SharePoint Server 2007 foundation has provided an opportunity for Mimosa and NearPoint for Office SharePoint Server 2007 to help organizations with their archiving, information protection, and e-Discovery needs. Mimosa NearPoint for Office SharePoint Server 2007 transforms data from multiple repositories into a comprehensive, intelligent archive, and streamlines information management and discovery processes while substantially lowering storage costs.

“Mimosa has worked with Microsoft in the development of its new support for Office SharePoint Server 2007,” said Ryan Duguid, Sr. SharePoint Product Manager at Microsoft. “Mimosa has developed a competency in Microsoft technologies that provides NearPoint for Office SharePoint Server 2007 customers with the ability to decrease storage requirements, perform quick document recovery and enable e-Discovery on today’s platform, while providing preparation for tomorrow.”

“Mimosa’s next-generation solution promises tremendous value by archiving Office SharePoint Server 2007 content into an intelligent, powerful repository that can be managed seamlessly along with the complete Mimosa NearPoint archiving suite of products,” said Michael Lawrence, Senior Network Administrator, City of Lenexa. “With Mimosa NearPoint, the City of Lenexa will have comprehensive protection of Office SharePoint Server 2007, from the farm level down to individual list items or documents. The archiving and optional stubbing of documents, lists, sites and site collections will allow us to monitor retention and records management policies along with those for email and files, while allowing us to store more information at lower costs.”
