<p>Exchange Vault™ to Facilitate in RTA Migration</p>
<p>Sydney – August 2, 2004 - Content archiving and email management specialist, KVS Inc., today announced that the New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) will deploy its award-winning Enterprise Vault content archiving system to index, manage, archive and retrieve its corporate emails during the RTA’s migration from Microsoft® Exchange 5.5 to Microsoft Exchange 2003. Enterprise Vault will be deployed to 3,500 users in the preliminary stages, with a view of extending this to 6,500 users as the migration progresses.</p>
<p>The RTA has more than 200 offices throughout the NSW State, including 130 Motor Registries that manage 4.2 million drivers and 4.5 million vehicles in NSW.</p>
<p>“The nature of the RTA’s business means we regularly send and receive important email containing sensitive and private information,” said Greg Carvouni, CIO for the RTA. “We were looking for an effective storage solution that we could centrally deploy across the organisation for the archiving of our legacy email. This in turn is hoped will help speed up the IT migration by as much as 80 per cent.”</p>
<p>Exchange Vault reliably stores a very high volume of electronic information, and simultaneously allows that information to be searched and retrieved easily by end users. The RTA expects to be able to target between 200-300 mailboxes, some containing upwards of 100 Megabytes of information, to be stored over a weekend, causing minimal disruption to workforce information access and productivity.</p>
<p>“In the short term, bringing Enterprise Vault into the migration process will decrease the migration time, maintain user access to legacy email throughout the process and bring in email management best practice from day one of the RTA’s migration,” said Bjorn Engelhardt, KVS regional director, Asia Pacific. “The email lifecycle can also be centrally managed by IT administration to meet the RTA’s legal requirements and corporate policy.”</p>
<p>“Once up and running, any email received or sent by the RTA will be vaulted,” continued Mr Carvouni. “Subject to privacy legislation, this provides a quick and easy process for the RTA’s auditors to access and check specific email information rather than having to conduct time consuming restores.”</p>
<p>In addition to enabling regulatory compliance, Enterprise Vault increases information worker productivity through automatically moving information into storage, eliminating document message and content storage responsibilities from individual users. The results are reduced administration and storage costs and protection against records being altered or deleted.</p>
