Email archiving is something that all businesses need to do…by law. How to do it right is one of those things that can be elusive. I’ve had a couple of clients who’ve been successful with Arcmail, so I wanted to present this here…and get you to check out their webinars each week. The question, “Why Archive?” seems like a no brainer, but Arcmail breaks it down simply on their site here. Let me sum up some of the primary points.
1) Compliance – Whether it’s HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, or others, you need to be in compliance. No to mention that if your company is sued, and email is involved, you have to be able to produce the emails. Failure to do so can be fatal…in a legal sense.
2) Extending Mail Server life – These servers take a beating every day. You know they do, but most email servers are just slow and overloaded. By archiving regularly, you take the burden off of the email server to manage all of those emails. (How many does your company get each day?) This will help extend the life of that server just a bit longer, so you’re not forced to purchase a server when you’re not ready.
3) Accessing Archived Data – There are those companies that would just rather settle a lawsuit with someone than dig through their email archives. Arcmail has a great little search feature that will help you discover what you need, rather than hiring a firm to go through and manually search your archives. A lot cheaper yea?
Consider that it’s effective to have an archiving solution.
