Office 365 is a cloud-based offering from Microsoft (News - Alert) that has been designed to enhance collaboration in organizations. Businesses across the world are migrating to this powerful platform as part of their strategy to leverage the cloud to improve communications and within their businesses.
To support these organizations that adopt Office 365, GWAVA, a provider of messaging security, unified archiving and messaging continuity, has just released Retain Unified Archiving version 3.0 that powers support for Office 365.
By capturing all Office 365 communications, the solution enables organizations to meet compliance requirements. Retain provides policy-based archiving, disabling Office 365 auto-purge. The centralized control of messaging data features extensive search and publishing tools.
Further, Retain Unified Archiving offers multi-platform unified message archiving, eDiscovery, and publishing, providing significant cost savings to organizations. The service enables organizations to seamlessly archive a single or mixed messaging platform environment, running Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Live@EDU, and GroupWise in addition to Facebook and Twitter (News - Alert) social media messaging.
The latest release also includes a new statistics and reporting server along with an enhanced built-in Web access archive viewer for quick searches, which can capture and forward message data. Another feature of Retain is the browser-based archive viewer that easily enacts litigation hold, print, forward, save, redact, export and search functions.
“Office 365 is a critical communication platform for many organizations,” said Ken Muir, CEO of GWAVA, in a statement. “Retain now provides a single point for administrators, end users, HR, and legal to archive and access this messaging data into one unified archive; without having to access multiple pieces of software or hardware in multiple locations.”
TMCnet recently reported that Office 365 is now HIPAA compliant as it measures up to the many demands outlined by HIPAA regulations.
