EAS History

Previously called Exchange Archive Solution, EAS was originally developed by EDUCOM TS, Inc., an Ottawa-based software development firm. The first release of EAS occurred on March 15, 2000. EAS was sold as commercial software for local [on-premise] 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.

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

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. 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. This legacy of market-leadership remains today.​

On July 24, 2007, EAS was acquired by Autonomy, Inc. of Cambridge, UK. Shortly after the acquisition, Autonomy announced that EAS was integrated with Autonomy’s IDOL search technology. Gartner repeatedly rated Zantaz and Autonomy’s archiving solution as one of the top three in the market.​

On October 3, 2011, EAS was acquired by Hewlett Packard, Inc. of Palo Alto, CA. In order to ensure the ongoing development of EAS for their worldwide customer base, Hewlett Packard chose Capax Discovery as their exclusive licensee in perpetuity for all of their on-premise archive solutions [EAS, CAMM, NearPoint, HPCA].

On July 29, 2014, EAS was acquired by Capax Discovery, Inc. headquartered in Williamsville, NY.

The EAS 9.2 Release

Since the beginning of 2020, our team has delivered three service pack releases of EAS 9.0.  Much of the focus of these service pack releases has been on our EAS Discovery application.  Based on the continuous feedback from you, we have implemented a number of suggested enhancements to streamline the early case assessment and review process.  New features include:

  1. Query Manager.  A brand new UI feature has been implemented which will enable end-users to save their search full context queries securely on a per case basis.  This new feature will preserve not only the key term expressions, date ranges, and recipient information, but it will also preserve and enable the recall of the specific custodian objects as well.  The ability to export the search queries out to a flat-file will remain a feature in the product as well.
  2. Passwords.  End users can now set their own passwords for PST exports.  End users can now copy and paste the password text and recall in-place passwords from the export manager for re-use.
  3. Naming Conventions.  End-users can now apply a custom naming convention to the export job names.
  4. Custodian Exports.  End-users can now perform an export solely based on the case custodian objects.

We will continue to augment the end-user experience throughout 2020.  Please continue to provide us your feedback.
