REDUCE COST & RISK WITH A NEXT-GENERATION ARCHIVE

Despite the popularity of text and social media, email is still the number one tool for business communication and collaboration. In fact, according to IDC, sixty percent (60%) of business critical information is now stored, sometimes exclusively, in email. It’s more important than ever to establish an email archiving strategy that ensures business continuity and information availability. Modern email archiving solutions are changing to accommodate the new realities of the digital workplace and can intelligently store, manage and discover email content to meet business and compliance requirements to:

  1. Simplify eDiscovery and Compliance
  2. Eliminate PST’s
  3. Control Growth
  4. Improve Employee Productivity
  5. Enable Cloud Strategies

ONE: SIMPLIFY eDISCOVERY AND COMPLIANCE

According to Gartner, the ability to simplify and facilitate eDiscovery is often the most important archiving requirement. The deluge of email communication has created a compliance nightmare for most organizations, email content must be managed for legal discovery or overall corporate governance. In fact, over fifty-five percent of organizations have been ordered by a court or regulatory body to produce email.

To help reduce risk and ensure compliance, Commvault software delivers a holistic and automated approach to retaining and accessing the right information across the enterprise and deleting it defensibly. With a robust and intuitive search experience that was purpose-built specifically for legal teams to self-service their own collection, legal holds and reviews, without burdening their IT team. That’s really important when the clock is ticking against performing Early Case Assessments or weighing the cost of discovery vs. settlement. With one product, Commvault offers truly integrated collection, legal holds, search and disposition from a broad collection of data sources, streamlining the eDiscovery process across data silos and making it more defensible against point solutions.

TWO: ELIMINATE PST’s

Personal Storage (PST) files often mean a lack of access and control over email communications, causing significant corporate risk to the organizations that use them. PST files can be scattered anywhere in an organization, such as on desktops, laptops and file servers. This is because they are usually stored in an ad-hoc manner by the end-user, making them difficult to locate, access and search for in response to litigation or compliance scenarios.
