Depending on the email and/or instant messaging system used, the specific archiving requirements, and the company strategy, Arcplace will help customers to design and implement the optimal archiving solution. Arcplace distinguishes between two methods of archiving: so-called mailbox archiving and journal archiving.
The purpose of mailbox archiving is to ease the burden on the email system by moving old email data into an archive. In addition, personal user archives (PST/NSF) can also be imported into the mailbox archive. The data is easy to access for users and no training is necessary.
The purpose of journal archiving is to store messages (emails and/or instant messages) in accordance or in compliance with data retention laws and regulations. The entire stream of incoming and outgoing messages is copied to the journal archive. These messages are typically stored on legally compliant storage systems. To enable customers to search this collected data more efficiently, the solution includes comprehensive and efficient e-discovery capabilities.
The use of instant messaging has gained in importance in many companies over the past years. Studies have shown that business-critical information is nowadays increasingly being shared by both email and instant messaging.
Arcplace, with its archiving solutions, offers customers to archive this information continuously and automatically. This allows the information to remain preserved and traceable.
