About AdvisorMail

Veritas™ AdvisorMail is a comprehensive archiving and compliance solution that is designed to seamlessly archive, monitor, search, and retrieve emails and Instant messages (IMs). It also meets FINRA, SEC, GLBA, SOX, and HIPAA regulatory requirements.

AdvisorMail automatically and securely captures, indexes, archives, and backs up emails and IMs in a central online repository. Approved personnel can quickly and easily monitor, search, and retrieve messages anytime. AdvisorMail helps your organization meet compliance and retention requirements without making the costly upfront investments in hardware, software, integration services, or IT personnel.

This guide describes the features of the AdvisorMail web application, and describes how you can configure and manage your AdvisorMail environment, and how to perform compliance activities on your archived messages.

Recent updates to AdvisorMail

The October 2017 release of AdvisorMail includes the following enhancements for improved security in the web application:

  • The administrator now sets only a temporary password when creating new auditors and offices, or when resetting an auditor's password. After using this temporary password to log in, the user is immediately directed to change the password to one of their own choosing.

  • The password complexity rules have been strengthened for auditor and administrator passwords. For existing passwords, these strengthened rules are enforced when the password is changed, or when the auditor's details are edited.

    Note:

    The strengthened complexity rules now include the requirement for a minimum of 10 characters rather than 6, plus the inclusion of at least one special character, and no space characters.

    The full password requirements are listed elsewhere.

    See About AdvisorMail system security.

  • The option to display passwords in plain text in the web application interface has been removed. The table of search results on the Offices and Auditors pages no longer includes the column to display the plain text passwords.

  • The file protection password for data request results no longer uses the system administrator password. The administrator must now specify a password when completing each data request submission. This password cannot be the system administrator password.

    See New Request.

Recent updates to AdvisorMail

The October 2017 release of AdvisorMail includes the following enhancements for improved security in the web application:

  • The administrator now sets only a temporary password when creating new auditors and offices, or when resetting an auditor's password. After using this temporary password to log in, the user is immediately directed to change the password to one of their own choosing.

  • The password complexity rules have been strengthened for auditor and administrator passwords. For existing passwords, these strengthened rules are enforced when the password is changed, or when the auditor's details are edited.

    Note:

    The strengthened complexity rules now include the requirement for a minimum of 10 characters rather than 6, plus the inclusion of at least one special character, and no space characters.

    The full password requirements are listed elsewhere.

    See About AdvisorMail system security.

  • The option to display passwords in plain text in the web application interface has been removed. The table of search results on the Offices and Auditors pages no longer includes the column to display the plain text passwords.

  • The file protection password for data request results no longer uses the system administrator password. The administrator must now specify a password when completing each data request submission. This password cannot be the system administrator password.
