Why Read This
Driven by compliance requirements, eDiscovery needs, and IT objectives, organizations are rapidly adopting cloud-based approaches to message archiving. While those using message archiving delivered in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model cite compelling benefits, information risk management professionals will need to do their homework in this rapidly changing market. In addition, they must embrace effective retention and disposition strategies to achieve key objectives that these systems enable. This survey-based document captures decision-makers' views on the advantages of cloud message archiving vis-à-vis on-premises alternatives, pre-implementation archiving application usage, status and trends on hybrid or mixed deployments, and retention management functionality utilization.
