It is well understood that organisations are creating data at a higher rate than ever before. This is due not only to traditional methods of communication such as email, but also through the increasing use of social media by businesses, be that through, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or other apps.
This presents two concurrent problems for business – the growth of data and the need to be able to archive this data from multiple sources.
Enterprises often look at this issue from the starting point of email archiving, whether they need to archive their communications to reduce storage pressures or for statutory compliance. However organisations should look at the totality of their communications data, and include their social media, Instant Messaging etc within that. Securelinx recommends Gwava’s Retain solution for this reason. Retain provides multi-platform unified message archiving of all email, social media, IM, web searches, and mobile communication data. This de-duplicated unified archive is optimised for both search and eDiscovery and can be deployed readily either on-premise or in the cloud.
The Retain archive is accessible by end users and administrators directly through Retain’s Web Access Archive Viewer. This enables your organization to quickly access, search, and audit archived communication data as well as comply with legal requirements. Being able to search in one archive for all communications (email, social media and mobile) relating to a single topic is a compelling tool for both enterprises and state organisations. Securelinx has deployed Gwava solutions for customers, all of whom have seen significant improvements to their data management and archiving.
