Flexible message deletion policies

Free up your storage system with message deletion policies. Retain enables you to specify how long your message data is stored on your system. You can set policies to delete data from your server after being archived in Retain, or after exceeding its retention age. Whatever policy you set, Retain Archiving for Exchange enables you to reduce storage space and server load on your Exchange system.

One place for all your archived Exchange data

With Retain Archiving for Exchange, all your Exchange messaging data, including email, appointments, files, and attachments, is archived into one unified data archive. Within the central archive, you can search, publish, and perform eDiscovery on all your archived data, enabling you to gain valuable insight into your business.

Outlook plugin

Retain Archiving for Exchange enables users to easily access archived messages directly from within Outlook and OWA with the Outlook Plugin. This plugin features the same search ability as the full Web Access Viewer, allowing users to search their entire archive from within Outlook. This provides users one location for accessing all of their email, both live and archived. Archive Email also provides the ability to cache archived data based on specified criteria for offline access.

Do more with a third-party archiving solution

Whether your Microsoft Exchange system is deployed on-prem or in the cloud, Retain Archiving for Exchange provides secure, enterprise-level archiving for your entire system. All your Exchange email, appointments, files, and attachments are securely archived and easily accessible from one central location. Whether your end users are looking to place litigation holds or export data, they can easily do so within the unified archive.

Archive your Skype for Business data

Maintain oversight and compliance for Skype for Business/Lync communication by archiving your data in one central archive. Your email, social media, and mobile communication is also in the central archive. Once archived, Retain Unified Archiving enables you to browse, search, perform eDiscovery, and maintain oversight on Skype for Business communication data.

Get more out of your Exchange data with intelligent archiving

Take a deeper look into your archived business communication data with intelligent, granular archiving. Retain archives data from Exchange using the Microsoft Recoverable Items Folder, or EWS impersonation. This means that archiving is not limited to journaling, though archiving via journaling is available.

Manage PSTs with a central archive of all Exchange email

Eliminate the need for PST files by archiving all email communication data. Retain Archiving for Exchange enables you to import PST files and personal archive data into one central archive for easy access. Once all data has been archived, an administrator can remove the ability for users to create new files in the policy settings in Microsoft Active Directory. You can also prevent users from saving any additional PST files to their individual workstations.

Archive your Exchange Journals your way

Archive all your Exchange incoming and outcoming messages from single or multiple Exchange Journals and funnel them into a single mailbox in Retain. You can easily manage the size of the journal by allowing message deletion from the journal once it has been archived, which reduces your storage costs exponentially.

Single-instance storage helps free up storage space

By archiving only one copy of a message and attachment via single-instance storage, Retain Archiving for Exchange significantly reduces the storage space you use. Because Exchange does not support single-instance storage, your storage costs are driven up exponentially, which is where Retain for Exchange comes in.

Access your data faster with single sign-on

Retain Archiving for Exchange provides single sign-on for users to access their archives whether using Outlook or the Outlook Web App (OWA). This enables your end-users and administrators to access the archive quickly and easily—and without help from IT.

Ensure compliance and control

Exchange lacks critical capabilities that can put your organization at risk for data loss and compliance violations. As a result, the standard archiving functionality of these systems is not enough for the enterprise. Retain for Exchange provides an archive that is platform agnostic, which means you can set and control archive policies, export data to PDF formats, perform redaction on exported messages, reduce the load on your Exchange system, and maintain complete control of your data. This helps to ensure your data archive is complete, compliant, and secure.

Complete data control

Whether your data is archived on-prem or in the cloud, you maintain control. You will always know where your data is stored and who is accessing your data. Flexible security policies ensure that your data is kept completely secure, but still easily accessible so when you need to audit or search, you can do so quickly and easily.

Increase system performance with the Retain High Performance Indexing Engine

Enjoy fast and easy data retrieval with the High Performance Indexing Engine. The clusterable, high performance index is able to support an unlimited amount of search requests, so you can easily find exactly what you’re looking for in a matter of minutes. There is near zero latency between the time a message is archived and when it is available for indexing and searching.

The High Performance Indexing Engine also features multiple formats, all of which ensure optimal system performance. The external engine features a load balancing format for increased system performance, or a failover format for redundancy. You can also use the engine in a load balancing or failover format or both depending on your organization’s unique needs.
