Iron Mountain wins email archiving test

All four participants offer enterprise scale tools

In the opening round of this two-part series, we tested seven leading e-mail archiving products. This time, we're applying the same test methodology to four additional products.

Our participants in round one were Barracuda, Deepinvent, GFI, Jantheon, Metalogix, RedGate and Symantec. Our second group consists of ArchiveOne Enterprise from C2C, NearPoint 4 from Iron Mountain, DataCove from Tangent and ZL Unified Archive from ZL Technologies.

Our decision to split the test into two parts was simply a way to accommodate all the vendors who wanted to participate.We decided that a single, 11-vendor test was too unwieldy.

Barracuda came in first among the seven products in Round One, followed closely by Symantec and GFI. Iron Mountain wins Round Two, with Tangent coming in a close second.

If we combine the scorecards from both tests, Barracuda comes out on top, followed by Iron Mountain and Tangent.

Among the four vendors tested this time around, all are enterprise-focused, although C2C has an Express version for 200 users or less, and the DataCove appliance is available in versions from less than 700 users to more than 7,000.
