2 Why Archive? Reasons to Archive:
Comply with data preservation laws/regulatory requirements Reduce Exchange server storage space Eliminate/preserve hard to manage PST data Search for critical business content and move it off of susceptible mail servers Statistics show*: In the past three years, 81% of IT departments have been required to search back-ups to retrieve one or more s Almost 50% of organizations have been ordered by a court or regulatory body to produce 4 out of 5 users employ personal/local archives to store messaging system data *based on Osterman Research findings

3 Compliance Archiving Why Compliance Archiving? Adhere to ever increasing regulations (SOX, HIPAA, etc.) Limit user access to archived data Archive Attender can: Archive for specific users/departments Archive specific content based on keywords Archive all incoming and outgoing messages from the journal mailbox in native format Search archived data for compliance reviews Index archived messages and attachments for quick search results Maintain audit trails of all activity within the archive Enforce retentions on archived data so information is automatically purged after its “useful” life

4 Storage Archiving Reduce storage requirements on Exchange servers
Why Storage Archiving? Reduce storage requirements on Exchange servers Increase server performance Reduce back-up/recovery time Inbox is becoming a file repository and taking up valuable server space Decrease legal liability by selectively archiving only critical business documents Archive Attender can: Provide Administrators and/or users ability to archive messages Provide Administrators, Compliance Officers, HR, Legal, and users access to search and retrieve data Display search results similar to web search engines for easy retrieval

5 PST Archiving Hard to access/password protected User-controlled
Why Archive from PST Files? Hard to access/password protected User-controlled Possible corruption issues Contain business knowledge Occupy valuable space Difficult to back-up Archive Attender can: Access and archive content from PST files Provide users access to search and retrieve data archived from PST files Decrease the need for PST files since information is now stored in a secure location

6 Exchange Limitations Exchange options available for archiving: PST Files are difficult to manage if not using a product like Mail Attender. Archive Attender allows elimination of PST files. Public Folders retain information in the Exchange Server database and do not alleviate any of the storage issues. Journaling copies incoming and outgoing messages to a Journal Mailbox, but does not purge messages from this mailbox. Archive Attender allows this data to be moved to a secure, storage location for preservation and searching.
