Enforce Email Retention Policies with Confidence
Your email systems administrator and IT department are meeting to discuss the latest round of storage cost increases, lengthy backup times and PST/NSF quota nightmares. Someone proposes simply deleting two more years of email storage. Unfortunately, too many companies become so mired in the morass of unmanaged data that they actually consider draconian and self-destructive steps like this proposal, which will only create more headaches in the future.
Backups are not an effective archiving solution. They are made at specific points in time and get written over frequently. Can you imagine searching backup tape after backup tape for that one email you need?
Without an separate archiving solution your organization is exposed to sanctions and fines. For example, a legal hold notice is ignored or lost. Or worse, your legal team goes to court with sheepish grins about lost emails and loses the case because of adverse inference.
