Symantec Corp. has announced the availability of Symantec Enterprise Vault 9.0 and Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector technology to help organisations store, manage and discover information across the enterprise.
Enterprise Vault 9.0 provides easy compliance and e-discovery searches by combining emails from Microsoft Exchange Online with on-premise archived content sources into a central repository, allowing organisations to reduce costs, centrally manage e-discovery and support internal investigations.
The software also expands content source support to include Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and Domino 8.5.1.
Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector helps organisations easily discover unmanaged information from desktops and laptops, as well as data that has not yet been archived from SharePoint Server and file shares, and quickly produce it for e-discovery requests. Enterprise Vault 9.0 and Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector are the latest releases in Symantec’s Information Management Strategy, to help enable organisations to delete confidently and discover efficiently, while protecting their information completely and deduplicating everywhere to eliminate redundant data.
“Archiving is the foundation of a comprehensive information management strategy and allows organisations to delete confidently,” said Brian Dye, vice president of product management, Information Management Group, Symantec. “Enterprise Vault 9.0 and the new Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector enable IT and legal departments to jointly develop and enforce retention policies, closing the gap between technology and policy to reduce risk.”
The updated version also introduces Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) support, enabling customers to use Microsoft Exchange Online with Enterprise Vault to realise the benefits of combining hosted email with on-premise archived content sources into a central repository for easy compliance and e-discovery searches.
Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator adds deduplication, eliminating the review and export of redundant files to drive down cost and accelerates time required for an early case assessment.
Organisations using Symantec NetBackup can leverage an integrated Enterprise Vault 9.0 agent at no cost to backup Enterprise Vault. Enterprise Vault works with NetBackup to define automatic, policy-based migration strategies that move archived information from disk managed by Enterprise Vault to tape or other media managed by NetBackup.
Symantec Enterprise Vault 9.0, Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector and Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator 9.0 are available now worldwide.
