Email Archiving

Email is the lifeblood of your business, but it’s also a significant source of risk. Intellectual property loss, compliance violations, audits and lawsuits are facts of life, but they don’t have to cost you dearly. Premium Email Archiving delivers peace of mind, significantly reduces costs, and minimizes risk.

Built With Compliance In Mind

It doesn’t pay to take chances when it comes to meeting compliance and corporate governance standards. With Premium Email Archive, your data is protected both in transit and at rest with AES-256 cypher-strength encryption, the same standard used by the U.S. Department of Defense. All messages and attachments are preserved in top-tier, physically and logically secure data centers using immutable storage methods which meet even the most stringent of compliance requirements.

Respond Rapidly, Reduce Costs

Having an archive in place allows you to respond quickly to audits and discovery requests and simplifies compliance reporting. All messages and attachments are full-text indexed and rapidly searchable. Search results can be easily saved, tagged, organized, and exported, all of which translates to significant cost savings.

Easy to Deploy, Easy to Access

With Rackspace Email Archiving, every sent and received email is automatically preserved in our secure cloud archive. The solution can be deployed in minutes with no additional hardware or software required.

Protect Your IP and Maintain Employee Continuity

When employees leave your company, that shouldn’t mean a disruption in business continuity or a loss of intellectual property. Rackspace email archiving allows you to maintain access to all emails from departed employees, even in the event of malicious deletion of messages from the inbox.
