Organizations continue to struggle with retaining information to meet regulatory and business requirements. As a result, many keep everything, sometimes longer than they should, increasing IT administrative overhead and business exposure and risk. To help address this challenge, Enterprise Vault supports Classification of all ingested content – email, files, Instant Messaging, Social Media and more. Customizable policies automatically determine what to classify and retain or discard and whether to tag an item for faster search, discovery or supervisory review.
What happens to your archive when your retention policies must evolve to be compliant with new regulations or business requirements? You adjust archive retention as needed. Re-classification helps ensure your archived information meets current regulations, retention and classification policies. You can revisit an Enterprise Vault archive with unlimited retention and use policies to define what information should be kept for business value, compliance or discovery and what should be deleted. You can even update retention periods on individual items.
Support Cloud Email Initiatives
In the initial release of Enterprise Vault SMTP Archiving, you could configure the feature to archive all messages that were sent to the Enterprise Vault SMTP servers were stored in one or more journal archives. You could also selectively journal only messages to or from specific addresses. Enterprise Vault could store all the messages in the same archive or in several different archives. With Enterprise Vault 12, you can now configure SMTP Mailbox Journaling to store all messages to and from a specific address in an archive that is exclusive to that target address. Messages sent from the target address are stored in the Sent Items folder of the archive. Messages received by the target address are stored in the Inbox.
Regulatory and business retention requirements can change over time. Fortunately, Gated Deletion helps you delete information only if it meets current retention policies. Enterprise Vault can perform a policy check before expiry or user deletion.
Optical Character Recognition
Your ability to more precisely archive and retrieve images has been enhanced with Image OCR (optical character recognition), which allows you to extract image text for indexing and classification, performing OCR on images with embedded text during the archiving process. Enterprise Vault supports iFilter text extraction, enabling any Windows iFilter plug-in to extract text for indexing and classification. Images may then be searched and retrieved using Enterprise Vault Search, Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator or Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator.
