Level 4

The Enterprise Vault team is excited to announce the general availability of Symantec Enterprise Vault™ 11. You can download the bits from Symantec File Connect here (

This highly anticipated release super charges Enterprise Vault, making it bigger, faster and better than ever before:

  • Bigger platform support - Introduction of a powerful IMAP capability to offer support for end user archiving from any email platform
  • Faster archive access - A new, modern end user search interface coupled with archive access via IMAP makes access to archived items easier than ever
  • Faster archive performance - Up to 20% faster archiving rates and up to 18x faster browsing of the archive via Fast Browse
  • Better control and manageability - More powerful PST Migration capabilities, including migration status dashboard, as well as Monitoring and Alerting enhancements via SCOM

Here's a run through some of the major enhancements in Enterprise Vault 11:

Mail Connect

Mail Connect provides the ability to access an archive via an IMAP compatible client from platforms such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktops. It opens up direct access to the user archive from an array of different clients and will be especially useful if you have Mac email clients or are moving your email services to the cloud, but want to retain your Enterprise Vault data on premise. Customers can now deploy Enterprise Vault email archiving within any email server environment, taking advantage of users driving the action of archiving.

Enterprise Vault Search

The all new Enterprise Vault Search is a modern and familiar end-user UI that provides a rich, cross-browser search experience. It unifies and replaces the existing features of Archive Explorer, Integrated Search and Browser Search. End users will find archived information quicker and easier than ever.

Fast Browse

Fast Browse-enabled archives can list the contents of an archived folder up to 18x faster than previously possible. This performance improvement is particularly noticeable when used in conjunction with Mail Connect or Enterprise Vault Search. 

PST Migration Enhancements

Enterprise Vault’s PST migration capabilities have been enhanced to improve the workflow around enablement, monitoring and processing. New capabilities enable administrators to filter and sort PST information in the Enterprise Vault administration console and group PST files or computers for processing in batches. Six new dashboards have been added to provide live migration status and reporting. Additionally, Enterprise Vault can now be configured to migrate password protected PST files without needing to know the password.

Enhanced SCOM Monitoring

The Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) pack has been enhanced with improved daily monitoring of key Enterprise Vault resources, which helps provide a status and identify issues or failures in the Enterprise Vault environment as quickly as possible. The new features help reduce the time spent performing daily operational/monitoring tasks for Enterprise Vault, Backup and Storage Administrators.

Storage Safety Queue

Exchange mailbox customers can now benefit from instant quota relief. Using the Safety Copy feature, you can configure vault stores so that Enterprise Vault keeps safety copies in its own internal storage queue. This means that Enterprise Vault can remove items from original locations as soon as they have been archived, independently of whether backups have been completed, while retaining data redundancy. The safety copy is safely removed from the storage queue once backed up or replicated, so time is saved in freeing up space on the original server and more importantly, space is immediately returned to the user’s mailbox so they can continue to work without interruption.
