Trusted and proven email archiving
Enterprise Vault, the industry leader in email and content archiving, enables companies to store, manage, and discover unstructured information across the enterprise. Using a market proven architecture, Enterprise Vault provides an open, intelligent and manageable approach to improve management, reduce costs and control information risk. Enterprise Vault for Microsoft Exchange provides a cost-effective and easy-to-administer approach to efficiently manage email storage via automated, policy-controlled archiving to online stores for active retention and seamless retrieval of messages and attachments. A stand-alone software based solution, Enterprise Vault integrates with Microsoft Exchange environments to help you take control over the explosive growth of vital business content found in email. Each Enterprise Vault software component carries distinct advantages to help you meet this goal.
Automatic mailbox management
With Enterprise Vault, you can eliminate quotas and message size restrictions. Give your users a mailbox of virtually unlimited size while controlling the growth of storage resources. Admin-defined policies automatically archive individual mailbox email and attachments out of Exchange and into online Enterprise Vault stores. Shortcuts are left behind, allowing users to easily view or restore the original items transparently through Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Web Access, or via extended web-based search functions. This enables Exchange to focus on the dynamic handling of newer information while Enterprise Vault software acts as a long-term repository for older information. Exchange Server performance is dramatically improved, and users can enjoy instant access to their email without the associated cost and management issues.
Exchange managed folder support
Enterprise Vault can also synchronize settings with Microsoft Exchange Managed Folders in order to map archived items with Microsoft associated retention categories for simplified policy management, and storage optimization - in line with the way end users work with live Exchange data.
Enterprise Vault software allows organizations to migrate all existing PST file data into the archive repository. Restoring user search and accessibility to this data enables the organization to effectively achieve PST file eradication.
Enterprise Vault software works seamlessly with Exchange journaling with minimal overhead to the Exchange server. Enterprise Vault can be configured to retain a copy of all email messages sent and received, helping to ensure that they are kept for the period of time required to meet regulatory or legal retention requirements. Additionally, optimized single instancing across the journal archive and mailbox archive within Enterprise Vault will dramatically reduce the cost of the archive as items are only stored once regardless of source or location.
Seamless end user experience
Enterprise Vault is a seamless extension to end users existing tools - giving visible access to archived information anytime, anywhere. Indexing of archived email and attachments combined with seamless integration with Outlook, Outlook Web Access, and Exchange allows users to quickly and easily search and retrieve information. Shortcuts and web-based search functions keep users instantly in touch with all archived email content on both a mailbox and an organizational level. Whether a search is performed for large volumes of email or simply to locate a single item, the seamless presentation of the archived data is the winning feature of Enterprise Vault software.
Enterprise Vault provides native integration with Microsoft Rights Management Services so that encrypted messages that need to be archived are decrypted and indexed applying the necessary retention policies. This also allows encrypted messages to be searched and retrieved in the event of litigation or regulatory investigations.
Windows desktop search
Enterprise Vault can be integrated with windows desktop search to provide search features from a common, familiar search tool. This helps to keep knowledge workers productive, enabling them to quickly and easily find what they are looking for across multiple locations from a single search window. Searching from a single location helps users quickly find and retrieve messages and documents, whether they are stored on the desktop or in Exchange or archived in Enterprise Vault.
