Company

Business description: PostPath, Inc., formerly Apptran Software, Inc. was incorporated in December of 2003. PostPath is dedicated to the creation of a better email and collaboration infrastructure - better for users, better for IT departments, and better value. To make deploying a new server a practical proposition for most enterprise customers, PostPath has broken open the compatibility lock that Exchange™ has had over email infrastructure to deliver the only non-Microsoft email server that features drop-in compatibility with Exchange™ and with the rest of the existing email ecosystem. At the same time, PostPath enables the construction of a lean infrastructure - a high performance solution, built on lower cost hardware, using standard tools to create a system that is simple and easy to operate. And with PostPath, the innovations of the open standards world become accessible, innovations at the infrastructure level in areas such as archiving and disaster recover, and also user-focused innovations such as browser-independent AJAX web client support.
