Features and Benefits
Message Archiving provides a complete solution for message capture, secure storage, search and discovery, and archive management and access. Feature Email capture and archiving Benefits Captures all inbound, outbound, and intradomain (internal) email messages and attachments and stores them in a central, corporate archive. Integrates with your message security service, filtering to ensure that only legitimate email is archived. Your message archive remains free of junk mail and virus-infected messages. Automatically archives any email messages that users or administrators view or deliver from quarantine. Automatically accepts encrypted messages if your email server uses TLS (Transport Layer Security). Storage and business continuity Provides long-term storage of archived messages. In the event that your email server is unavailable, archives inbound messages before they are spooled. Automatically deletes messages at the end of the month after their retention period has expired. Supports holding messages beyond their retention periods. Search and discovery Allows authorized users to search for, view, and export messages in the archive, using a Web-based interface. Provides robust search options with which users can search for messages based on date range, sender, recipient, subject, content, or file attachments. Message export Forwards archived messages to an email address. Saves archived messages to an industry-standard MBOX or PST file. The MBOX format is supported by other search and management tools, such as litigation support systems. You can import PST files in Outlook, or open unencrypted PST files in text or hexidecimal editors. Investigations management Standard, Professional, and Google Message Discovery editions Allows users to set up investigations that organize and save search criteria and search results for specific topics. Includes an option to place a litigation hold on saved results to prevent them from being purged when their retention periods expire. Allows an administrator to restrict the scope of an investigator’s search to a specific set of senders and recipients. Allows a user to transfer saved search criteria and results to another Message Archiving user. Message retention and purging Place a litigation/investigation hold on messages. Manually purge unneeded messages from your archive.
