Archive file data with a cloud-based solution.

Technology to archive file and email data is essential for effective information management. The amount of data in your organization is growing exponentially while legal requirements and employee demand necessitate that data be more available and searchable than ever before. Yet traditional archive data solutions – with on-premises hardware and software systems and the personnel to manage them – are increasingly complex and costly.

Centralized control of retention policies streamlines administrative tasks, and comprehensive support for e-discovery and litigation requirements makes compliance a breeze.
