Enterprise Archive Solution (EAS) is an enterprise file, social media and email archiving software program originally developed by Educom in 2000. EAS was subsequently acquired by Zantaz, Autonomy and HP and is currently owned by Capax Discovery. Enterprise Archive Solution has the ability to archive content from various sources such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, various file systems such as NTFS, social media such as Twitter and Facebook, and instant messaging such as Microsoft Skype.

History[edit]

Enterprise Archive Solution (EAS), previously called Exchange Archive Solution, was originally developed by EDUCOM TS, Inc., an Ottawa-based software development firm. The first release of EAS occurred on March 15, 2000.[1] EAS was sold as commercial software for local installation. EAS was designed to archive content from Microsoft Exchange to help organizations comply with legal requirements for E-mail retention, to reduce storage load of Microsoft Exchange, improve backup, and for .pst file management.[2][3]

From 2000 to 2004, EDUCOM released multiple new versions, gained market share and was eventually acquired by Zantaz, Inc. in 2004.[4] Over the next year, Zantaz added additional functionality, released version 4.0 and officially renamed the product to Enterprise Archive Solution.[5][6]

In 2005, EAS was being used by more than 2 million users globally and was a leading solution in the archiving market as characterized by analyst IDC.[7] In 2007, Zantaz customers included 9 of the 10 top global law firms, 11 of the Fortune 25 and 14 of the top 20 Financial Securities firms.[8]

On July 24, 2007, EAS was acquired by Autonomy, Inc. of Cambridge, UK.[9] Shortly after the acquisition, Autonomy announced that EAS was integrated with Autonomy’s IDOL search technology.[10]

Analyst Gartner repeatedly rated Zantaz and Autonomy's archiving solution as one of the top three in the market.[11][12][13]

On October 3, 2011, EAS was acquired by HP, Inc. of Palo Alto, CA.[14]

On July 29, 2014, EAS was acquired by Capax Discovery, Inc. headquartered in Morristown, NJ.[15]
