Native Exchange Archiving: A Paper Tiger
I’ll cut right to the chase: if your organization is a Microsoft Exchange shop and you’re using it as a long-term archive, you may be exposing your company to unnecessary risk. Why? Well, native Exchange archiving is nothing but a paper tiger - something that seems imposing, but in reality, is ineffective. Email remains the single most important business communication today, but look around, and you’ll also see other channels being used to get things done – social media, IM, collaboration tools, you name it. It doesn’t capture all the other channels mentioned above. In this day and age of never-ending litigation and scrutiny of corporate behavior, third-party archives can be a compelling alternative to address your email governance needs and to reduce your risk exposure around newer communications channels. Join us on this free webinar and you’ll learn: Why you should be archiving your email with third-party tools The limitations of native Exchange archiving Tips to lower your risk and stay out of trouble Please register for the webinar and we will email you the details.
