How Arcserve Email Archiving Works
Designed for single or multi-tenant architectures, Arcserve Email Archiving enables modern email archiving management for multiple divisions, locations, or end users with on-premises or cloud-based platforms such as Microsoft Exchange, IBM Domino, Microsoft Office 365, and Google Gmail. It does not install any software on the email server but instead, runs as a virtual appliance offered as VMware OVF, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Amazon Web Services AMI.
It can be deployed on-premises, or in a public or private cloud, and uses Single Instance Storage (SIS) to reduce archive storage. Messages with the same message ID are stored only once.
For Office 365, journal email is received from Exchange Online and is encrypted and stored in the Arcserve Email Archiving data store.
Corporate policies are applied by choosing messages to retain or exclude (based on sender, receiver or keyword), setting retention schedules, and applying legal holds and disposition policies.
Secure access control is designated by function: Super-administrators and administrators manage the policy but have no access to view emails, auditors have access to view all emails, and employees only have access to view their emails via Outlook, web or mobile.
Administrator(s) and authorized users can run granular searches against all email data, export search data and apply legal hold requests. Data can be extracted from the archive and loaded back into the primary mail system to protect against data loss or deletion.
