Founded in 2007, Sonian's specialty is cloud-archiving and e-discovery technologies, particularly email archiving and public-cloud based data. Jon Pilkington, Sonian's vice president of product management and marketing, told CRN in June that the company's customers are often users who want to get their email off a primary system like Exchange but also keep it available, users who want to easily archive data or users who have compliance needs.
