Hedge Fund Email and IM Archiving with Amicus® Email Archive 6.0 Plus for Hedge Funds

Amicus, Inc., the leading application service provider (ASP) of compliance technology solutions to securities broker dealers and registered investment advisors, introduces Amicus® Email Archive 6.0 Plus for Hedge Funds.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2005 -- Amicus, Inc., the leading application service provider (ASP) of compliance technology solutions to securities broker dealers and registered investment advisors, introduces Amicus® Email Archive 6.0 Plus for Hedge Funds. Combining EMC Centera® storage technology and acclaimed Amicus® training and support, this powerful but economical compliance package meets the critical archiving needs of large and small hedge fund firms, whether they are preparing to register with the SEC by Feb 1, 2006, or simply seeking a more reliable and economical long term email solution.

Especially attractive to hedge funds and fund of funds stung by the cost of achieving their registration and compliance goals in a short time frame are Amicus’ low setup fee and favorable terms. As a result, "We're experiencing record RIA and broker dealer sign-ups for Amicus® archiving solutions this year," said Marshall Huwe, CEO of Amicus, Inc.

But easy implementation alone is not the only reason for Amicus’ leadership. "Financial principals and CCOs need to know that they can certify their electronic messaging surveillance and archiving solutions as compliant.

They need their archive accessible online throughout the entire defined retention period so they can respond to regulatory inquiries and audits in a timely manner. They need training and reliable service at a good value from an experienced provider," Huwe notes. "Time and time again, small firms and large tell us that they are selecting Amicus® solutions because our solution is the best choice out of many they compared to help them meet all these goals."

Recent NASD and SEC enforcement actions have now convinced regulated financial professionals that email surveillance and WORM (write once read many) compliant archiving are not a processes to be trusted to patchwork solutions. Moreover, selecting an email retention solution from a vendor is only the first step. It is also essential to learn how to use it -- which is why training, support and vendor experience in helping firms respond to diverse regulatory requests is equally important.

Amicus Email Archive 6.0 Plus for Hedge Funds provides an easy-to-use and comprehensive tool for the retention of email and captured instant message communications, as required by SEC regulations, and easy access and review of archived emails throughout the required retention period. Amicus WORM compliant
Email Archive 6.0 Plus is available bundled with or without Amicus email hosting, anti-SPAM, virus protection and encryptions services.
