It is essential to archive and log all of the content that might constitute a business record and that could need to be retained for long periods including social media. Organizations more and more tend to use social media networks to communicate business critical information. Therefore, it is important to securely archive this data and to be able to quickly find and retrieve this data if required.

Retain helps organizations mitigate the risks associated with the increased usage of social media at work by securely archiving social media communications.

Text messages can be as critical as email to your organization for instant communication. However, without the means to store and track these messages, you have no way of knowing what confidential or sensitive information has been sent through texts nor can you be compliant with open records regulations.

For years, Retain has been successfully archiving emails, making sure they are safely stored and accessible for discovery. Retain Mobile offers the same advantages for Android & BlackBerry text messages and phone usage data. Retain securely archives every text and Messenger message and all phone call usage.

The Plan for Office 365 Migrations

As you move to the cloud, you need to consider migrating your current system to Office 365. The Migration Toolkit helps you to quickly make the move. After implementing Office 365 - should you ever decide to move back to Exchange – the Toolkit gives you the ability to do so. The archived messaging data is the same, therefore you can be assured that migrating to and from Office 365 will be easy and seamless. If you are afraid of data leakage in the cloud, a local archive of your data will give you the peace of mind of a secure and long-term retention strategy.
