You’re Wrong. Your Business *Does* Need to Worry About E-Discovery & Compliance

Every business needs an email archive software, even yours.

Perception: My business doesn’t need to worry about e-discovery or compliance

Reality: Oh, yes it does.

Sure, sure. You might never need to produce an email from years ago to respond to a request or action from the court system or a regulatory body. But what if you do?

The scary truth is that any organization, regardless of size or industry segment, needs to care about e-discovery. Why? Because any business can be ordered to produce employee emails as part of legal action. In fact, data from Osterman Research shows that 74% of organizations have had to do just that.

And compliance requirements are always changing thanks to shifts in target customers, adjustments in business models, and updates to rules and regulations. (GDPR, anyone?)

You don’t want to be the one who tells the boss that you don’t have an archive or that Office 365 archiving doesn’t go back that far, do you?

Didn’t think so.

Protect yourself from shame (not to mention the boss’ wrath) and safeguard your organization from legal costs and regulatory fines by deploying a cloud email archiving solution. Cloud archiving empowers you to right-size for your organization’s needs. And you can do it without a huge IT budget allocation or additional staff time to manage requirements, patches, and upgrades. At the same time, you’re empowering your organization to respond quickly and confidently to requests from lawyers and regulators and reducing overall risk.

Tick tock. Don’t waste any more time. Investigate cloud email archiving solutions today.
