Part III – ETERNUS and Enterprise Vault – a modern archiving solution

The rapid adoption of online meeting and team collaboration platforms was astronomical in 2020. With the proliferation of these tools and the growth of remote workforces, archiving has evolved its focus far beyond email. The rapid increase in regulations for data privacy, banking, healthcare, and government demands a more integrated and smarter approach to compliance, supervision and eDiscovery. In the most recent blogs about archiving, we highlighted the growing role of archiving platforms as a source of corporate memory, including the risks and rewards of recording digital conversations and the governance decisions needed to protect them.


As with any IT solution, it is important to consider certain basic features during the procurement process. While some of these are obvious, others may be slightly less so:

■   How the solution works




Enterprise Vault in combination with ETERNUS CS8000 empowers organizations to maintain important information and enables a repeatable and defensible discovery process while reducing overall cost and risk. The solution improves visibility and access to archived data and enhances operational efficiency.

Enterprise information archiving assumes vital importance in ensuring organizations’ compliance with recordkeeping regulations, preparation for litigation events, or e-discovery requests, while also preventing risky behavior that could be harmful from the brand reputation.

The propagation of digital communications makes it necessary for archiving solutions to support many different content sources and thus to constantly evolve along with the digital world. Internal audits, regulatory compliance, HR requests, supervision, and legal cases require a central repository, which will allow your company to be more proactive and prepared when it comes to discovery.
