The volume of email that needs to be stored seems out of control. But now there's a way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Intelligent archiving features in Symantec Enterprise Vault let administrators choose from three approaches for classifying email messages. Once messages are classified, it's easy to save what's important and delete what's not. Costs and risk are reduced. Discovery and compliance are streamlined. The approaches are:
Reducing archiving's cost
To minimize costs, Enterprise Vault can sweep up all non-record content left in user mailboxes and enforce deletion policies. When it saves messages it compresses them, and stores an attachment sent to multiple recipients only once.
Enterprise Vault can also be set to migrate archived email to the type of storage that's most appropriate. Older messages can be automatically migrated from a SAN to more cost-efficient SATA disks. For compliance purposes, messages that require write once read many (WORM) storage can be automatically sent there.
Enterprise Vault provides these kind of archiving capabilities not just for email but also file server environments, instant messaging platforms, and content management and collaboration systems. Find out more here.
