Archive and manage in place
A single archive for email and chat messages where the data is managed in-place. Governance policies are applied directly to the data store, eliminating the need to duplicate data in a separate archive which helps reduce the risks associated with data movement and spoliation. A robust audit trail provides complete visibility across the archive.
Retain business documents
Email and chat retention policies allow schools to define standard retention policies for Gmail and chat messages. Once a message reaches the end of the retention period, disposition is automatic to ensure compliance with retention policies. The automated process ensures that no data subject to a legal hold is deleted and reduces the risks of spoliation and noncompliance. Message holds help ensure email and chat messages can be preserved beyond their standard retention period for a legal matter or an investigation.
Find relevant documents
eDiscovery tools allow authorized users to search through the archive for data that may be relevant to a specific matter or investigation. Google search algorithms can search domain wide, across large amounts of email in the archive and return results quickly. From the search results, authorized users can define and manage collections of message search results and collaborate with others to manage them. Email can be exported from the archive for further review and processing.
