SAN JOSE, CA – May. 1, 2012 ZL Technologies, Inc., the leader in unified archiving for large enterprises, announces that its flagship product, Unified Archive®, has been granted the first and only DoD 5015.02 certification for Google Mail (Gmail), the cloud-based messaging platform offered by Google. DoD 5015 certification is the most coveted authentication in the field of records management and is officially endorsed by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

In the era of Big Data, managing massive volumes of e-mails and files has proven to be one of the most difficult challenges faced by federal agencies. Further, US President Barrack Obama mandated new rules for the federal government’s transition into a digitized recordkeeping environment to better manage electronic records and leverage cloud-based technologies to lower costs.

To achieve these goals, federal agencies can now choose among cutting-edge records information management or RIM solutions from ZL Technologies and Google. Whether on-premise or as a SaaS or cloud-based deployment, federal agencies can now satisfy both Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and DoD 5015 requirements, simultaneously.

“We are pleased to be recognized as the first DoD 5015.02 certified organization for Google Mail,” says ZL CTO Dr. Arvind Srinivasan. “This step advances our mission of taking records management and archiving to the next generation with a unified approach providing organizations the flexibility to choose between on-premise or cloud-based deployments.”

With an extensive track record and proven expertise in archiving Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, and now Gmail, ZL addresses large organizations’ needs in records management, eDiscovery, compliance, and storage management with one unified system.
