How Do You Currently Retain Your Organization's Email?

Recent changes in both the legal and regulatory environments have dramatically broadened the need to retain email messages for future search and retrieval, and this applies to virtually every size of organization.

Any organization that does not implement a strong email archiving solution faces a potentially astronomical hit both financially and in terms of resources if ever called upon to provide copies of email that they cannot access quickly.

  • Do you have a retention policy that determines how long an email message is retained?
  • Do you use role-based security that controls what access level individuals have to retained email?
  • How do you monitor acceptable email behavior amongst your employees?
  • If an auditor or legal counsel requested copies of emails as part of a discovery process how quickly and easily could you find them?
