Mimosa Systems, a leader in
next-generation email, file and SharePoint archiving solutions, recently
announced that the Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller's Office, the
third largest clerk's office in Florida, has selected the Mimosa
NearPoint archiving product for the protection and recovery of vital
email data. The system ensures compliance with Florida's Sunshine Law
that mandates all municipalities and government agencies retain and
provide access to public records including email. In addition, Mimosa
NearPoint provides the clerk's office with eDiscovery capabilities to
enable proactive collection, preservation, review and production of
electronic documents to comply with a discovery request.
The Clerk & Comptroller's office serves a population of nearly 1.3
million citizens from six locations throughout Palm Beach County. As an
independently elected constitutional officer, Clerk Sharon Bock protects
the interests of citizens while serving as Clerk of the Circuit Court;
the county's Chief Financial Officer, Auditor and Treasurer; Clerk of
the Board of County Commissioners, and County Recorder. The office
performs nearly 1,000 different constitutional and statutory functions
or duties--many of which rely on email communications to be effectively
and efficiently executed.
With a mission to protect, preserve and maintain the public records and
public funds with integrity and accountability, the Clerk &
Comptroller's Office takes the protection of its data very seriously. To
deliver email services across all locations, the office uses
Microsoft Exchange 2007 running on Dell servers. It turned to Mimosa
to meet eDiscovery needs, reduce the office's risk of data loss, improve
its archiving capacity and increase its ability to recover messages
during a disaster recovery event, such as a hurricane.
"At the Clerk & Comptroller's office, we are always looking for ways to
increase efficiencies and improve processes and systems," said Clerk
Bock. "Mimosa offers email recovery and other features at a value."
Key factors in the selection of Mimosa NearPoint and the NearPoint
eDiscovery application include:

Comptroller's Office by enabling complete content capture. With key
features including individual item-level legal holds, conversation and

eDiscovery workflow - the clerk's office can lower eDiscovery costs
while remaining compliant with its state electronic discovery

a flexible per-seat licensing model that is based on the number of
employees in the clerk's office, giving the organization greater budget
control and flexibility without signing up for pricy thresholds.
