PST Enterprise enables IT administrators to regain control over email data stored by end users in individual PST files and scattered across their organization. It can eliminate the risks associated with PST files, as well as reducing ongoing costs and supporting IT requirements for Compliance and eDiscovery.
PST files pose a significant challenge to many organizations today. Often used by end users as personal archives for email, they are scattered across end user systems and network storage and are not managed consistently or effectively – if they are managed at all.
They constitute a hidden threat because they can exist outside the corporate environment, are difficult to discover and even more difficult to search. As they are not usually backed up, they leave end users and the business vulnerable to data loss.
Because PST files typically do not comply with an organization’s information management and compliance policies they also represent an ongoing legal risk and will complicate any eDiscovery processes.
Recent versions of Microsoft Exchange and Office 365 now provide more effective capabilities to retain and manage email centrally so end users no longer have a need to store email locally within PST files. However some users continue to rely on PST files and there may also be a lot of existing data within legacy PST files that needs to be migrated into the new environment.
PST Enterprise addresses this by discovering PST files wherever they are located across the organization and then migrating the data contained within back into their corporate email environment. It is a highly scalable solution that is suitable for the largest enterprises as well as smaller organizations.
Identify all email stored across the organization and manage appropriately so that it is secure and readily available. Centralize storage and backup, or better still, eliminate the use of PST files to regain control of data and reduce the support overhead of these unreliable files.
Make all information visible and accessible so that in the event of an investigation or litigation, all data across the organization can be searched.
Protect against end user data loss or theft by either controlling PST files or migrating the data needed from them and deleting them.
Implement robust data retention and defensible deletion policies to reduce costs and ensure compliance with any relevant government and corporate information management policies.
Centralizing the information within PST files will help enable discovery and investigative requests.
