Automatic mailbox management
With Symantec 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 and keeping Exchange at predictable levels. Admin-defined policies automatically archive individual mailbox email and attachments out of Exchange and into online Symantec Enterprise Vault stores based on age and/or quota. Users have a transparent Outlook experience that also includes the ability manage live, legacy and archived email right from within Outlook with or, without shortcuts, whether offline or, on. Eliminate mailbox quotas and the need for PST without taking away that familiar user experience. This enables Exchange to focus on the dynamic handling of newer information while Symantec 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.
Seamless end user experience
Symantec Enterprise Vault redefines the end user archiving experience by making it part of the native Outlook and Exchange experience. Symantec Enterprise Vault has always been designed around ease of use, especially for end users who demand easy access to archived information. Symantec Enterprise Vault is a virtual vault technology that enables users to seamlessly access their archived information and allows them to manage their information whether it's in the archive or on the Exchange server. End-user search and retrieval of live and archived email is done using native Outlook search tools and interface with no reliance on shortcuts. With Symantec Enterprise Vault, Outlook users can click, drag, search, and retrieve archived email from within Outlook just as they would live email from the Exchange Server.
End user search
Symantec Enterprise Vault integrates with both Outlook Instant Search and 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 helping users quickly find and retrieve messages and documents, whether they are stored on the desktop, in Exchange or archived in Symantec Enterprise Vault.
Symantec 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.
