The benefits of email archiving are seemingly endless. From ensuring the
safety of critical information to improved server performance to legal
protection—email archiving is considered a best practice for organizations of
- Get more out of your day
Email steals time from companies ever day. Rather than working on projects
that can grow your business, employees are spending hours a week managing
their inboxes. Archiving can simplify your email retention policy, allowing
employees to think less about their email and more about getting down to
- Give your server a break
The average corporate email account receives 18 MB of data every day. If
emails aren't regularly deleted, your server can overload, causing costly
slowdowns. By automatically archiving email,
ArcMail Defender puts less
stress on the server and gives employees the freedom to delete, knowing that
if they need an email they'll always be able to quickly retrieve it.
- Keep your business-critical data secure
Email has become so much more than a form of communication. Today it
contains agreements, documents, notifications, contact information and many
other kinds of critical business information. By automatically storing email
records, your business can ensure that it's not losing or misplacing the
information you need.
- Let your IT staff do its job
An IT staff is busy enough that it can't afford to spend valuable
time searching backup tapes for elusive emails. Archiving streamlines the
email-retrieval process by making emails available to individual users so
they can go about their business without bogging down your IT staff.
- Mining your email
With the number of emails received each day, it's inevitable that
some may be missed or inadvertently deleted. By periodically searching an
email archive, you can find sales leads and other pieces of useful
information that you may have missed the first time around.
- eDiscovery that pays for itself
The legal discovery in a civil lawsuit can cost tens of thousands of
dollars. In some cases the cost can be so high that just settling the
lawsuit is a more cost-effective option. Archiving provides legal protection
by guaranteeing that all email is recorded and unalterable. An intuitive
search engine allows for the quick retrieval of all emails and attachments,
saving thousands in legal fees.
- Following the law is good for business
Several federal regulations (Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, etc.) require the
retention of and access to email records for specific types of businesses
and government entities. Email archiving ensures that all of your emails and
attachments are stored in their original form, making you fully compliant
with all government regulations.
- Protect against a crash
Storing emails and .PST files locally on individual desktops not only
takes up space on the hard drive but it can also put this valuable
information at risk if a computer crashes. Archiving ensures no matter what
happens on each local computer, valuable emails will always be accessible.
