Email Security, Continuity and Archiving


Breakwater provides peace of mind when it comes to the security, storage and archiving of clients’ emails. We offer secure email protection and continuity services to businesses, that are both simple to deploy and manage.

Our cloud-based service blocks 100% of known viruses and more than 99% of spam emails before they reach your network, all without the hassle or expense of managing hardware and software.

The key features of this service are:

  • Advanced malware and virus protection
  • Email content filtering
  • Highly effective spam filtering
  • Automated email and spam statistics
  • Automatic mail spooling in event of customer mail server failure
  • Operated through redundant, highly secure data centres.


Email down-time during a disaster or outage puts increased pressure on employees and customers during, what is already, a demanding and critical time. Breakwater’s email continuity service enables inbound and outbound email to be available from secure data centres to end users through webmail and mobile access via POP3/IMAP. Archiving capabilities securely capture and store email in real time and duplicate, across geographically dispersed data centres. This valuable service means that, regardless of the size or scale of a crisis situation, email will be maintained.

The key features of this service are:

  • Current and historical email available
  • Access from remote sites (webmail access from any browser)
  • Mailboxes synchronised once the disaster or outage is over
  • Ability to re-route email if the company servers are lost
  • Rolling message capture for 90 days.


Breakwater offers secure, cloud-based, email archiving to clients. This hosted email archiving service delivers data retention, compliance and simple mailbox management, all at a fraction of the cost of an on-premise system.

The huge growth in email (increasing by 500% over the last 10 years), creates storage and operational challenges for data security and system performance. In addition to this, clients need to conform to increased legal and regulatory requirements, substantiating the request from leading analysts for all organisations to archive their email.

Our email archiving is built from the ground up with cloud computing infrastructure technologies, offering premium archiving and the most powerful search on the cloud. In using a hosting service our clients are able to address a number of IT needs at the same time, freeing up resources and allowing an in-house IT department to focus on strategic initiatives.
