Retain Unified Archiving… What’s new in 4.2?


July 11, 2017 3:53 pm





Retain Unified Archiving is an archiving solution that supports GroupWise and securely archives email, appointments, files and attachments, as well as other email platforms, social media, and mobile communication data. Retain is unique in that it can archive multiple systems simultaneously, so if you are using GroupWise and Exchange, along with social media and mobile communication, Retain can archive all of this information in one central archive.

Retain 4.2 was released July 6, and has also added support for archiving Skype for Business. Organizations that use Skype for Business with Exchange or Office 365 now have the ability to archive Skype for Business message data using Retain. This allows you to have oversight on your Skype for Business conversations, manage that data, and ensure regulatory compliance. Skype for Business archiving is performed alongside archiving of Exchange and/or Office 365.

To learn more about Retain 4.2 and all the new features, view the webinar recording. This webinar provides you with a complete overview of Retain and the latest release of Retain.

So what does this mean to you?

If you currently archive Exchange or Office 365 with Retain, you can now archive Skype for Business. All you have to do is upgrade to the latest version of Retain. If you are not archiving Exchange or Office 365 with Retain, you can start archiving your email today and archive Skype for Business as well. It is easy to get started…download your FREE 30-Day trial right now!

For those of you who are currently using Retain, there is one other feature that is of interest. Retain allows you to have multiple modules that support the same email platform. The use case would be, if you are running multiple instances of the same email system, say, for example four GroupWise systems. Retain can archive all four of those systems simultaneously and seamlessly. This allows for a true unified archive, where all data, no matter the system, or number of systems, is archived in one central archive.

Archiving Social Media

Retain 4.2 also features integration with ArchiveSocial. This integration helps ensure that your social media communication data is captured and your company is compliant with archiving regulations. Retain and ArchiveSocial work together to archive Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Flickr, Vimeo, Pinterest and Google+ posts into one central repository. The entire social media history is captured in its original context, which allows you to see message threads, view photos, and watch videos as they originally appeared. Retain and ArchiveSocial provide configurable rules that allow you to control the retention period of archived data. This joint solution gives you immediate and complete access to all your company social media communication data. Search, perform eDiscovery, and export social media communication data from the central archive, along with your employees’ email, and mobile message data.

Archiving Text Messages

In addition to social media and email archiving, Retain archives text messages, multimedia messages, and phone call logs for BlackBerry and Android. For iOS, Retain archives secure text messages and phone call logs through integration with CellTrust. Click here to learn more about archiving text messages and mobile device communication data.
