Archiving for Exchange

In order to comply with current retention laws and to satisfy all customer needs the Microsoft Exchange Enterprise Client Access Licenses offer inbuilt archiving functions.

The specialisation of a third party archiving solutions like Retain makes it possible to offer extensive eDiscovery tools that take the functionality beyond that of native Microsoft Exchange. The reasons for an archiving solution vary from company to company. The main causes include reduced storage costs, more efficient working and the possibility to securely archive important information.
