Key features of Compliance Accelerator

Compliance Accelerator lets organizations perform cost-effective supervisory review of their employees' communications to ensure compliance with regulatory bodies.

Among the key features of Compliance Accelerator are the following:

  • A system for defining the employees that are to be monitored and grouping them in an organizational structure that reflects the departments within the company. The messages of selected exception employees can be kept separate and reviewed by specially assigned reviewers.

  • The facility to capture a random sample of the items that have been sent to the Enterprise Vault archive of a journal mailbox.

  • A client application that lets administrators configure Compliance Accelerator and designated reviewers read and mark the captured items.

  • A secure SQL database that keeps information on all the monitored employees, captured items, and the review process that you have applied to the items.
