Email Archiving Solutions
One of the primary drivers organisations invest in an email archiving solution is for regulatory compliance. However there are other advantages to email archiving solutions. Email archivers have built in storage facilities and can additionally connect to external storage areas via SAN and NAS taking the burden away directly from the email servers.
Email archivers tend to have built in powerful policy and discovery utilities, useful reporting tools and they can act as a backup and recovery service for an organisation's emails in the event of a system failure or disaster.
Email archivers are offered in software and appliance platforms and have become a popular cloud service. Some vendors have integrated their archiving solutions with their email security gateways delivering more of a unified solution.
