Robinson Distribution focuses on security, archiving and system management. Partnering with Cryoserver extends its portfolio in unified archiving for its partners and customers.

In South Africa, compliance is mainly driven by POPI (Protection of Personal Information) and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations). A processor of personal data must clearly disclose any data collection, declare the lawful basis and purpose for data processing, and state how long data is being retained and if it is being shared with any third parties.

Cryoserver multi-tenant on-premises or cloud-based solution allows Robinson's customers to offer archiving to their clients or users on any platform (Exchange, Office 365, GroupWise, Lotus, etc), with spam protection, anti-virus as well as business continuity build-in. Cryoserver offers customers the added advantage to export their data at no additional cost.

With the escalating cost on Office 365, more and more customers are moving to affordable storage space. Having a complete archive of clients who left your organisation would mean no additional licence cost for dead mailbox on Office 365. Another option that had proven to be a cost saver for our clients is the ability to stub messages. Stubbing allowed for a small portion of the message to be saved on the e-mail system and the content in the archive. A client can migrate a smaller mailbox across to Office 365, which reduces the archive time and cost.


Compliance was the origin of Cryoserver, and remains central to the product today, providing real-time capture and storage of every message received by the mail server on a separate secure server, protected by a tamper-evident audit trail. The fast search and retrieval feature meets the needs of short eDiscovery periods, and provides a "never delete" auditability.
