Zen Software at Infosec We're but a few weeks away from the annual industry pilgrimage to Earls Court for the biggest of the IT and security shows in this country, InfoSecurity Europe. Each year IT professionals (and the not-so) gather at InfoSec to take in keynote talks from industry experts, strengthen relationships with customers and suppliers, keep an eye on the competition and of course, pick up plenty of promotional tat for the kids. This year will be slightly different however, as visitors will notice that the show's noticeably better than previous ones thanks to the addition of the Zen Software stand in the new exhibitor area. It's possible I'm overestimating the impact we'll have but in any case, we're genuinely pleased to be a part of the show and that we'll be down there unashamedly flogging our wares in our compact but charming booth (K94).

Mailstore versus Exchange banner

Before I start, don't worry - I'm not for a minute going to disguise this an impartial and exhaustive comparison of the two offerings given our slight bias here in the direction of MailStore. I am however, asked quite often asked if I can highlight any differences so with this in mind, I've compiled just a handful of points that differentiate the two that may be of interest if you're currently weighing up the various archiving options available to you.
