The challenge

After migrating to Office 365 as part of a wider mandate to adopt a higher volume of managed and cloud services, Sensata began looking for a SaaS-based archiving solution to help store, protect and manage its new Office 365 email content. The company wanted a platform that would give it near-unlimited storage resources for archiving and could quickly ingest legacy mail and accommodate future email platform integrations. Critical capabilities for the new solution included email journaling and eDiscovery, which the native Office 365 archiving did not satisfy.

The solution

A long-time Veritas customer, Sensata evaluated Veritas during a four-month RFP process. After determining that the Veritas service met its cloud archiving and eDiscovery needs, Sensata selected for its flexible subscription pricing, simplicity and relative ease of implementation. During the onboarding process, when Sensata required email migration and connection to several legacy platforms, Veritas helped create the connectors needed to execute the data migration and ingestion process.

The outcome

Sensata's email archiving solution has grown from 8,000 users to more than 13,500 over the past six years. It has helped Sensata reduce the costs associated with its archiving capabilities by about $130,000 annually; improve the efficiency of its archiving and eDiscovery processes; and increase the productivity of the company's Global Privacy and Security office as well as the end users it serves. Sensata remains impressed with the "hands-off" manageability of, as well as the consistent data access and uptime of the service.
