Micro Focus Previews Enterprise Messaging at Techconnect 2017

Newly Created Enterprise Messaging Boasts an Enterprise-level Collaboration Solution with Unrivaled Security and a Complete Archiving Tool; Deploy On-premises or as a Cloud Service

18 September 2017

Micro Focus today unveiled Enterprise Messaging, a comprehensive collaboration product, at Techconnect 2017, enabling employees to collaborate anytime, anywhere on any device while ensuring security. Enterprise Messaging provides a secure, convenient way for employees to be productive and can be deployed on-premises or as a cloud service. This new solution gives IT Admins end-to-end visibility into the organization’s collaboration including a complete archiving solution, making data more accessible to help simplify laborious compliance requirements.

The nature of business communication is constantly changing, with an ever-growing demand for employees to be more mobile, more instant, and more dynamic. However, increased regulatory pressures combined with virtually infinite data creates a slow and difficult process to access and search archived information. Enterprise Messaging bolsters productivity with unified instant and persistent exchange of messages. It also provides access to relevant files and communication history, and delivers unprecedented security, in-depth forensics, messaging archiving, auditing and collaboration oversight – allowing IT Admins to efficiently manage the collaboration process to meet the organization’s needs.

“A typical Micro Focus collaboration customer manages a complex and continually changing IT infrastructure on a global-scale, that needs to address employee requests for access to information anywhere at any time on any device, while balancing rigorous compliance demands and the need for security, ” said Wes Heaps, Collaboration Solution Expert for Micro Focus. “Enterprise Messaging combines the power of Micro Focus’ collaboration-rich products with complete messaging archiving, unparalleled security and disaster recovery to create a robust and secure collaboration product that can be deployed on-premises and is also available as a cloud service–to provide flexibility into any IT environment.”

This newly created solution will be on display at Micro Focus Techconnect 2017, the premier technology conference for CIOs, IT Managers, IT Directors, Network Administrators, IT Consultants and Resellers, wanting the latest information on infrastructure, regulatory compliance, information archiving, collaboration, security, and identity management. This two-day conference delivers more than 50 sessions ranging from general discussion, "hands-on" sessions, to technical training.

Enterprise Messaging features include:

  • Complete and compliant archiving: Enables complete oversight and visibility of the messaging system by archiving all messaging data into a single, unified archive. This includes emails, appointments, files, and attachments. Built-in eDiscovery tools allow for access, search, litigation holds, tag, print, forward, save, redact, and export archived data.
  • Unparalleled security: Includes functionality for inbound and outbound protection, antivirus, anti-spam, cybercrime protection, DDOS protection, and porn blocking with built-in image analysis. Enterprise Messaging leverages the latest technology to keep messaging systems protected, including protection for the messaging transfer agent (MTA), post office agent (POA), WebAccess, and Mobility.
  • Chat-based teamwork: Employees can easily engage in topic-driven, project-based, or team-oriented discussions with interactive, real-time conversations and dynamic file sharing.
  • Enterprise Mailbox Management: Enables an administrator to manage mailboxes from a single, intuitive administrative tool, whether there is a need to manage mailbox settings for 10,000 users, or turn off the vacation rule in a single mailbox.
  • Disaster Recovery: Delivers quick message restoration as well as hot backups of post offices and domains, ensuring that critical data is always current and available.


Enterprise Messaging (on-premises) will be available in late November. Cloud-hosted service will be available by late 2017.

Techconnect 2017 is being held this week September 18-19 in Berlin.
