Symantec Enterprise Vault™ provides a software-based intelligent archiving platform that stores, manages, and enables discovery of corporate data from email systems, file server environments, instant messaging platforms, and content management and collaboration systems.
Because not all data is created equally, Enterprise Vault utilizes intelligent classification and retention technologies to capture, categorize, index, and store target data in order to enforce policies and protect corporate assets while reducing storage costs and simplifying management.
Enterprise Vault also provides specialised applications, such as Discovery Accelerator and Compliance Accelerator that mine archived data to support legal discovery, content compliance, knowledge management, and information security initiatives.
It’s worth noting the product allows archiving and retrieval of just about all document types and not just email messaging, providing a complete office archive solution.
“The emerging issue with email is its success as a communication tool and vast data that is now expected by users to be readily available. The problem of allowing instant access to old emails without compromising the integrity the email server is one that most email administrators are now grappling with. Enterprise vault is a mature solution that ensures accessibility of email by users along with regulatory and compliance enforcement. Two of the many useful features are templates that provide quick-start message retention policies and the ability to seamlessly move emails to a separate storage medium but at the same time provide access to users from their standard email client. The advantages are rapid implementation and negligible end user impact."
