Quest Quietly Purchases Akonix

In an unannounced move, Akonix is now wholly owned by Quest Software. Beginning some time in the last week, Akonix has begun to display its Web page logo with the phrase "is now a part of Quest Software."

Akonix develops and markets an instant messaging security and compliance appliance. By acquiring Akonix, Quest now offers both email archiving and instant message archiving. You might recall that Quest entered the email archiving market when it acquired AfterMail in January 2006. The market for email archiving is quite a bit larger than that for IM archiving, and this leaves FaceTime as the only independent vendor for IM security and compliance.

We'll publish a detailed analysis of the transaction when it's formally announced. ... Bob Spurzem

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
