(PRWEB UK) 8 January 2015, independent market analyst and global advisor for email and data migrations, today announces QUADROtech’s ArchiveShuttle as the first gold certified archive migration tool, as a part of their “Use Certified” campaign.

The MigrationForensics Migration Tool Certification Program (MTCP) allows migration tool software vendors like QUADROtech to demonstrate not only that the tool can perform a safe migration, but also provides an opportunity to demonstrate that it follows best practices for data migration around rigorous criteria of Security, Compliance, Performance, Audit and Data Integrity.

Based on a set of open standards published at, MTCP presents 25 checkpoints, across 5 standards, which are developed on the basis of expertise and research gleaned from the data migration market space.

Certification is available in 3 levels:

    Bronze: demonstrates the tool can perform a safe migration, without integrity issues or data loss
    Silver: demonstrates the tool conforms to best practice, and can perform a safe data migration
    Gold: the premier certification level demonstrating outstanding innovation and best practice for migration safety, process and compliance

“QUADROtech ArchiveShuttle is the first migration tool to have passed our rigorous migration tool certification program, passing 24 of the 25 industry based checkpoints we put in place.” said Dan Clark, CEO of MigrationForensics. Clark goes on to explain that “Our MTCP certification provides organisations comfort that they can avoid undetectable data loss, unpredictable projects and maintain data compliance through all stages of the migration process. For QUADROtech ArchiveShuttle to have certified at Gold level presents something currently unparalleled across the archive and data migration industry. As experts in Enterprise Vault and Office 365 migrations, QUADROtech have demonstrated not only that they produce a tool which can perform safe data migrations, but that it meets the highest levels of both best practice and migration innovation.”

Peter Kozak, CEO and founder of QUADROtech: “Certification is important because we want to do everything possible to give our customers the utmost confidence in our products and practices. Having ArchiveShuttle verified by an independent third party, combined with over 3PB of successfully migrated data behind us, means anyone looking to migrate their legacy archives to new platforms such as Office365, can trust QUADROtech to do so at unbeatable levels of speed and security.”

UK Business Leaders Fear Email Attachments Damage Business

Cloud Direct

Bath, UK (PRWEB UK) 1 October 2012

1 October 2012: 40% of business leaders fear that a mistake with email attachments could lose clients, according to the report: Fatal Attachments, published by Cloud Direct™ today. 54% of businesses say that a serious mistake would damage their business’ reputation, with 8% confirming they have already lost a client or sale as a result of email attachment errors.

The study also found that 36% of employees in the UK admit to wasting up to 10 minutes each day, or 43 hours a year, as a result of the hazards of email attachments, with 8% wasting on average between 10 and 30 minutes on a daily basis.

The study of over 230 UK business professionals found that the top five hazards of email attachments are:

1.    Files too large to send 50%

2.    Receiving an email without an attachment 48%

3.    Forgetting to attach a document 44%

4.    Not being able to open an attachment 38%

5.    Not being able to access an attachment on a mobile device 31%

Geoff Dowell, time management expert and executive coach at Dowell Consulting said: “Many people find themselves in high pressured work environments where they have to prioritise urgent tasks. Sharing information is simple in theory but it can actually be the time constraints that cause high levels of stress.

Taking such small steps can often have a big impact on improving a company’s development.”
