iLumin Expands Relationship with Network Appliance
Reston, VA - October 8, 2003 -- iLumin
Software Services, Inc., today announced that it has worked closely
with Network Appliance (NASDAQ:NTAP), a leading provider of
enterprise network storage solutions, to tune iLumin Assentor
Enterprise with Network Appliance SnapLock solutions. Assentor
Enterprise is the industry's most comprehensive enterprise message
management solution and NetApp® SnapLock is the industry's
leading WORM (write once, read many) solution for disk storage
aimed at solving a variety of long-term storage needs for regulated
and enterprise data. NetApp SnapLock expands the data retention
capabilities of Assentor Enterprise, empowering corporate
compliance officers and IT administrators with the tools to
effectively manage their organizations' growing stores of
electronic records and communications to enable compliance with
strict records-retention regulations such as SEC Regulation 17a-4.
The synergy of both products working together helps business
managers more quickly respond to demands placed on their IT
environments as a result of recent regulations and gives companies
peace of mind deploying two leading solutions together.
"The integration of NetApp SnapLock with iLumin Assentor Enterprise
offers customers a compelling alternative to optical storage media
and makes data management simpler and more cost-effective," said
Patrick Rogers, vice president of partners and alliances at Network
Appliance. "With SnapLock designed specifically to store and manage
content to address regulatory challenges, this combined solution
brings a new level of value to the Assentor Enterprise suite and to
our mutual customers."
"By integrating Assentor Enterprise with SnapLock, iLumin has
greatly strengthened its arsenal of storage options with a highly
available, efficient, low-cost storage technology suitable for all
electronic communications," said Dave Ellison, president and COO,
iLumin. "iLumin continues to aggressively pursue relationships that
will enhance the Assentor Enterprise product line and provide our
customers with a world-class, enterprise-level archival and message
Assentor Enterprise is a comprehensive firm-wide solution that
provides archiving, compliance, supervision, discovery, litigation
support, and mailbox management for email and instant messages.
With wide-ranging and highly flexible methods for capturing
messages and attachments in real time, Assentor Enterprise can
inspect, analyze and automatically trigger content-based workflows
in either pre- or post-event fashion using policies established at
the firm, group or individual user level. Compatible with IBM Lotus
Notes, Exchange and many other popular and proprietary email
services such as Bloomberg, and BondDesk, Assentor Enterprise also
captures instant message flows from IBM Sametime, Akonix, FaceTime,

advanced natural language content analysis technology, which
understands the context of words and phrases within a message and
creates an intelligent index of message content, firms can search
for entities such as people, companies, locations, dates, and
account numbers. Such capabilities are important to organization
that must ensure compliance with legal, regulatory and internal
requirements such as "restricted issue" provisions between
conflicting business units, which are especially critical to the
Financial Services industry.

and archive hundreds of gigabytes per day in a high availability
