Kroll Ontrack offers corporate IT comprehensive support of Microsoft Exchange 2010 with launch of Ontrack Powercontrols 6.0

Enhanced mailbox recovery management tool offers unique migration path and complete support for primary, archive and recoverable e-mail, allowing companies to more efficiently manage relevant data for legal and compliance purposes and business continuity

Minneapolis – Feb. 23, 2010 – Kroll Ontrack®, the leading provider of information management and legal technologies products and services, today announced the availability of Ontrack® PowerControls version 6.0. Providing complete support for Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010, the enhanced tool offers primary mailbox, Personal Archive and Recoverable Items mailbox management functionality, as well as an efficient migration path to Exchange 2010, allowing IT administrators to significantly reduce the time and resources required to search, identify, copy, restore and export data from the increasingly robust messaging platform.

In addition to compatibility with the most current version of Exchange Server, Ontrack PowerControls 6.0 specifically:

  • Supports the Exchange Personal Archive mailbox feature. Associated with a user’s primary mailbox, the Personal Archive provides users with direct access to e-mail within the archive, just as they would their primary mailboxes. With Ontrack PowerControls 6.0, IT administrators can search, restore, export and report all mailbox data, including archived items, in one centralized tool. This functionality simplifies time-intensive and intricate IT functions including: restoring single mailboxes, identifying potentially relevant data for legal discovery or compliance, and exporting data for further investigation or business continuity purposes.
  • Supports the Exchange Recoverable Items feature. Exchange 2010 is equipped with retention management policies, which allows IT to retain and place a hold on e-mail that a user has edited or deleted. Supporting Recoverable Items ensures comprehensive management of all e-mail associated with Exchange including Recoverable Items, in addition to primary mailboxes and Personal Archives.

"As companies deploy Exchange 2010, IT professionals must consider and ensure that various policies, procedures and systems can support the latest version. Through Kroll Ontrack’s commitment to supporting Microsoft Exchange administrators, Ontrack PowerControls 6.0 ensures that IT’s Exchange 2010 migration requirements are met," said Jim Reinert, vice president of product development, Kroll Ontrack. "Furthermore, using Ontrack PowerControls 6.0 to copy existing mailboxes to the new Exchange 2010 server offers IT administrators a unique migration path that does not require an old server to be online simultaneously with the new server. This eliminates the work required to prepare an old server or capably coexist with Exchange 2010."

With a unique migration path to Exchange 2010 and complete support for all primary, Archive and Recoverable e-mail associated with a user, Ontrack PowerControls 6.0 is an integrated, comprehensive tool for mailbox recovery and archive management needs. It ultimately allows IT teams to easily meet both internal and general IT environment requirements and service stakeholder requests efficiently.
