Office 365 doesn’t actually provide all the archiving capabilities you need.

No Joke: Office 365™ Isn’t Really an Archiving Solution

Perception: I’m good. I’ve got Office 365.

Reality: Not so fast. Literally. Office 365 is hamstrung by a legacy Exchange architecture, which hinders e-discovery, search speed, and productivity.

There’s a reason 87% of organizations responding to an Osterman Research survey said that Microsoft Office 365™ was an incomplete solution that requires additional products or services.

O365 does perform short-term archiving, but to cover yourself and your organization, you need a long-term archiving strategy supported by a true email archive solution. Anything less puts your organization at risk.

Still wondering if you even need email archiving? You do. Learn more.

Here’s what you want on your email archiver wish list:

  • Cloud archiving: Since we’re archiving almost everything these days, cloud storage gives you the space you need at a price that won’t bust the budget. The right solution enables you to set document disposition policies, too.
  • Fast email search: This is critical for responsiveness and productivity. Select a solution with a fast search SLA.
  • High-level cybersecurity and chain of custody assurance: Encryption, threat monitoring, and activities logging keep your data safe from deliberate attacks and accidental deletion.
  • Mobile-enablement: Remote access ensures staff can work safely from every location any time – even when they can’t get to the office.
  • Uptime: Office 365 is notorious for going down and taking your access to archives with it (it went down for the third summer in a row). Choose a cloud-based solution with an uptime SLA.

Now that you see the shortcomings of Office 365 and Exchange email archiving, take steps to bring your organization up to a higher standard. Investigate cloud email archiving solutions and improve performance and security for your organization 24/7/365.
