This tweeted ad from 2009 has gone viral: “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your severs?” Hmmm. Maybe because they, um, lied?

Sonasoft IRS Update
Sonasoft has a lot more words about it in an “IRS UPDATE” on their site now: “Sonasoft Corp., a leader in enterprise-class email archiving and eDiscovery tools, clarifies its role with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Sonasoft’s email archiving services. Sonasoft does NOT have IRS email. Sonasoft NEVER had access to IRS email.

OK, so the company that wanted you to use their products because the IRS uses their products maybe fibbed a little.

Call me crazy but I’m thinking I don’t want to do business with someone who lies to me. Of course, that seems to be business-as-usual inside the Beltway.
