Enterprise Vault Support for Safari, Firefox and iPhone / iPad devices
I would like to address a need that several Enterprise Vault customers are asking for support:
- Non-IE browsers like Safari and Firefox --> Those browsers are used in non-windows OS like MAC OX or Linux and each year the % is higher.
Enterprise Vault needs to be supported on those browsers not only for seaching but for viewing archived content and also enabling support for OWA Extensions.
- Mobile OS devices like iPhone / iPad IOS and Android --> Mobility is something that is growing fast in the market. Support for those devices is critical.
Those devices are mostly used all over the world (estimate of 40-50 million in 2011). If we can access our emails connecting to Exchange servers / OWA, it makes sense to also have support for viewing and manage archived content from those devices.
Those two requests will be well received in the Email Archiving industry and I'm sure it will make a difference when customers have to choose their solution.
Either go with a solution which is only Microsoft oriented or go to a wider solution which supports Microsoft and other non-windows OSes as well as other known mobile devices.
