Centralised retention management
Storing information relevant to your organisation
Establish a fundamental foundation for information retention management with Veritas archiving solutions—Enterprise Vault and Enterprise Vault.cloud. Through highly customisable policies, scan applications and automatically migrate information to an archive to support legal, regulatory or compliance requirements.
Classification with Enterprise Vault supports assigning unique retention to unstructured data—for example, Microsoft Office files—and in the case of Microsoft Exchange email, use optional data classification services to filter what is actually retained and tag archived email for faster search or supervisory review. Archiving also provides significant storage predictability by helping organisations reclaim primary storage and keep applications at predictable storage levels on-premises or by leveraging unlimited storage in a cloud archiving service.
- Flexible on-premises, cloud or hybrid deployment options
- Mailbox and journal archiving for Exchange, IBM Domino
- SMTP or IMAP archiving other email platforms
- Support for SharePoint archiving and file systems
- Partner ecosystem for other sources, such as social media

Improve IT operations
Conquer PST files and complement backup
Regain control over PST files by storing them in a purpose-built archive. If you're on Office 365 or have imminent plans to migrate email to Exchange Online in the cloud, take advantage of free import of up to 2 gigabytes of legacy PST data per Enterprise Vault.cloud or Enterprise Vault Enhanced.cloud user purchased for the first year of your contracted term.
If you're keeping email on-premises, use advanced migration tools with Enterprise Vault to systematically locate and ingest PST files. Centralise pesky PST files in the archive—where they are searchable and discoverable—while still providing seamless access to your end users. Also, remove PST data from primary file system backups, protecting the valuable information within the Veritas archiving solution.
Archiving helps remove stale, not-recently-accessed data from primary applications, such as SharePoint. By doing so, you decrease the storage footprint of these applications, which helps improve both backup and recovery performance.
In addition, archiving enables you to use your backup solution for its original purpose—protecting your data.
Backups are for recovery, archiving is for discovery.

Simplify your search
Archived information: Ready when you need it
As an IT administrator, when you get a call to recover a lost email or file, what's the first thought that comes to mind? Is it "not another one" or something similar?
Archiving helps make your life easier by retaining your organisation's unstructured data, such as emails and files, in a central repository. Archived emails and files are not only available to support eDiscovery requests or internal investigations, but are also seamlessly available to users.
With Veritas archiving solutions, empower users to access their archived information when and where needed via robust searching capabilities.

Veritas Enterprise Vault Discovery.cloud supports cross-functional collaboration on legal matters and investigations for customers searching the Enterprise Vault.cloud archive. An optional subscription, Enterprise Vault Discovery.cloud enables users to build iterative searches, refining results to show relevant content. Customers requiring search for information outside the archive or advanced capabilities, such as analytics or predictive coding, may opt for Veritas eDiscovery Platform, which also has the ability to search the Enterprise Vault.cloud archive.

Unstructured data compliance requirements
Both public and private organisations have growing obligations to one or more sets of data regulations.
General data retention regulations for public entities and private industries such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, energy, transport, telecoms, manufacturing and others, mandate the preservation of records for specified periods of time
Additional requirements for employee supervision are dictated by the U.S. FINRA, Dodd-Frank or European Union regulations for organisations that trade financial instruments or commodity contracts require supervision of employee activity and communications
Many organisations need help managing the cost and complexity of staying in compliance.
Customer Success: Antelope Valley Hospital
Improving eDiscovery and retention through cloud archiving
Based in Lancaster, Calif., Antelope Valley Hospital relies on Veritas Enterprise Vault to help improve eDiscovery processes and reduce storage costs for unstructured data, such as email.

Data compliance and supervision solutions
Veritas Enterprise Vault and Enterprise Vault.cloud help organizations easily automate policy-based classification and retention management for a broad range of compliance regulations. Through journal archiving, Veritas archiving solutions create indexed, manageable records independent of the mail system. This enables you to implement a policy-based framework for retention and deletion, regardless of user behaviour.
Veritas Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator automates role-based review of communications by appropriate supervisors, as required by industry regulations or internal mandates, while preserving a procedural audit trail.
Veritas AdvisorMail, an option for Enterprise Vault.cloud, provides email and instant messaging supervision ideal for highly-regulated organisations with WORM storage requirements.
Global data privacy rules are changing
Being prepared brings more benefits
Rules and regulations around how data is captured and used have increased dramatically. The European Union is overhauling its 1995 Data Protection Act with changes that could affect organisations in any global location. Taking proactive Information Governance steps now could improve your risk posture, lower your exposure to potential fines, and innovate your information management operations.
Archiving as a foundation for information governance
Leverage archiving to implement retention management as part of your Information Governance plans. Archiving helps you create automated policies to control retention and expiration, so information is retained for only its meaningful lifecycle, helping reduce business risk and exposure. Use classification where available to assign unique retention rules to information and store only what is required in the archive to help meet legal, regulatory or compliance requirements.
