“Enterprise Vault paid for itself in less than a year.”Marco Toste, CTO, Whitestar Asset Solutions

Retain only meaningful information
Categorize all archived content
A fundamental element of sound information governance plans, classification lets you analyze information and then make informed decisions about what to retain and what to delete. In Enterprise Vault 11, we introduced Data Classification Services to automate classification of Exchange email, and with Enterprise Vault 12, you can now automatically classify any content.
- Classify all content—email, files, instant messages, social media—archived both natively and via integrated, third-party solutions
- Leverage new Integrated Classification Engine with more than 60 default policies addressing regulations around the world
- Assign unique retention to individual items
- Tag items for faster search, discovery, or supervisory review
- Re-classify the entire archive or specific archived items to adapt to changing retention requirements
- Get a zero-cost transfer from a Data Classification Services license to an Enterprise Vault Retention license that includes classification, re-classification, and gated deletion
Know what’s next when your archived items are set to expire
Use gated deletion for assurance
Changes in regulatory or business retention requirements are inevitable over time. With Enterprise Vault 12, you can be confident when deleting archived information that meets current retention policies. You can also perform a policy check once you’ve reached the end of a retention period.
- Stay up-to-date on evolving retention requirements
- Confidently delete archived data according to policy
- Easily conduct policy checks when retention periods end
Speed and simplify supervision
Reduce irrelevant items to review with machine learning
Now you can make supervision quicker, easier, and smarter with Intelligent Review, a new feature of Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator. As your reviewers find relevant and non-relevant items, Compliance Accelerator learns from their responses and builds knowledge to prioritize useful information and cull non-relevant data over time.
- Reduce reviewer workloads
- Focus on supervised user relationships, not policy-based rule sets
- Evaluate content based on reviewer input, with no change to your review process Retrain the feature automatically if relationships change
Improve productivity with Enterprise Vault Search
Provide browser-based end user access to archived information
First introduced with Enterprise Vault 11, Enterprise Vault Search provides intuitive, browser-based access to the archive via laptops, tablets, or mobile devices. In Enterprise Vault 12, Enterprise Vault Search features an updated look-and-feel plus new features that improve end user productivity.
- Use “suggests” functionality to locate recent searches, items, and folders
- View images within the reading pane
- Employ regional settings for date and language
- Select from various date and time format options
- Search by classification tag, record type, or ID
Streamline access to archived files
Leverage an alternative to traditional placeholders or shortcuts
Now you can get direct access from every archived file system folder to the archive folder within Enterprise Vault Search. This feature makes it easier to administer Enterprise Vault File System Archiving and provides simple user access to archived file content.
- Browse archived content for EMC Isilon, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) file servers, or any CIFS-based storage currently not supporting placeholders
- Enable file server or folder retirement
- Support replication, including DFS-R
Simplify retention of critical information
Standardize your approach to records management
Do you need to mark archived items as individual records, conduct searches for these records, and export them for transfer elsewhere? This enhancement can help U.S. federal customers use the Capstone approach to managing email electronically in support of the Managing Government Records Directive.
- Manually or automatically declare any archived item as a record
- Declare records based on an extensive set of metadata or content rules
- Search based on Record ID or Record Type
- Export records from the archive in load files compatible with U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) specifications
eDiscovery and regulatory compliance are not limited to email
Archive native and non-native information sources via expansive partner ecosystem
Enterprise Vault has long supported archiving Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SharePoint, IBM Domino and Windows-based file systems natively. And with our partner ecosystem of Veritas-certified solutions, we can extend retention management to more than 50 non-native sources, including social media, Instant Messaging, financial and text messaging, files and custom content. In Enterprise Vault 12.2, we’ve introduced native archiving for Microsoft Skype for Business content, with support for peer-to-peer messages and conference chats.
“Enterprise Vault is providing a 40% reduction in our email store, which is better than our prior archiving solution.”Holger Gemassmer, CIO, Bültel Bekleidungswerke GmbH
“Enterprise Vault gives us much more powerful and comprehensive archiving compared to the native archiving of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.”Ricky Leung, IT Manager, Hsin Chong Construction Group, Ltd.
