Do you feel the options for archiving GroupWise email to the cloud are too limited? This article will help you understand more options that are available for GroupWise. Many products that were designed to only work with Microsoft Exchange when archiving email, now work with GroupWise. Here are a few large scale, world-wide cloud computing industry leaders that work with GroupWise: Symantec, Google, Proofpoint, and Smarsh, to name a few.
Symantec Enterprise Vault.cloud
Enterprise Vault.cloud is Symantec’s cloud-based archiving service. Symantec has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving for 11 straight years. Symantec says Enterprise Vault.cloud, “securely captures information in a centralized and tamper-proof online repository”. For some organizations this is critical. They also provide seamless user access, roles-based access for eDiscovery, rapid search functionality and more.
VHB, an engineering, planning, design and environmental firm explains how Symantec Enterprise.cloud solution reduced their administrative burden and weekly archiving duties.
“Searches that previously took 30 minutes now happen in about three minutes, as much as 10 times faster,” says Geoff Pangonis, Messaging Administrator. “And it’s nice to be able to go in and get a history of what you’ve done. From our legal counsel’s standpoint, they are in the driver’s seat by being able to find if something’s out there.”
He goes on to further explain, “Enterprise Vault.cloud gives me more time to work on other infrastructure improvements.”
Another archiving cloud provider Google, states that more than “5 million businesses have gone Google”. They offer 100% web based applications, including email archiving, with their Google Vault solution. Google Vault utilizes the same interface as Gmail which many users are already familiar with and for education and many other organizations, Google offers email archiving in the cloud at a dramatic discount. Google also states that they were designed as a cloud-based solution from the ground up, so no need to maintain desktop components. Google’s data storage solution is one of the premier storage solutions worldwide. Not only do they store email in Vault, but many of the same data centers are used for Gmail and Google Apps, Google+, photos, etc. They know how to manage performance, storage, backups, redundancy and security for their data centers.
Somerville Cambridge Elder Services a non-profit organization liked the option of a cloud solution and went with Google Vault. “Not only did Google Vault meet our needs with their technology but their price point for non-profit was a huge factor”. – David Whitty, Network & Technology Administrator.
Proofpoint Enterprise Archive
Proofpoint’s archiving differentiator is their patented DoubleBlind Key Architecture. It is the only solution in the industry that gives you “access to your information at all times,” ensuring organizations that they remain in complete control of their cloud data. “Unlike all other cloud archiving solutions that are susceptible to risks of co-mingling, data breach, and third party access, Proofpoint never has access to the customer’s encryption key”. The customer possess the encryption key which is unique in this industry, so only they can access your data. This is how Proofpoint ensures organizations of “complete privacy and no-breach security”.

Smarsh Archiving Platform
Smarsh is “the first company to deliver integrated archiving solutions for social media, mobile messaging and web content”. When reviewing their ever-expanding list of what they archive is impressive: everything from Email, YouTube, Jabber, chatter, to Twitter and much more.
Smarsh Archiving Platform’s strength is providing solutions for highly-regulated industries where organizations need features like email encryption and enforcement policies based on keywords across every message field, or need the use of Smarsh’s “proprietary policy enforcement engine that introduces unparalleled, automated efficiency in message supervision”. Their proprietary policy engine scans and then takes action before the message is delivered, giving administrators options to either block specific messages or sending messages to a queue to review and approve later.
Smarsh also has a policy enforcement engine, where messages or groups can be classified to meets specific policies based on key words across every message field. Smarsh’s archiving solution offers many more impressive features and functionalities.
Heron Financial is a great example of how Smarsh solutions efficiently and easily archive and search email in addition to social media. Heron Financial was already using Smarsh for email archiving but added their archiving support for social media before launching their marketing initiatives. Smarsh’s Archiving Platform was able to capture all the content and make it available to search and review.
“We have a one-person compliance department and wanted a solution that would limit time spent on supervision to no more than an hour each week,” said David Edwards, founder and president of Heron Financial. “Smarsh filled the bill. We generate a high volume of social media content, and Smarsh offered us a tool that made a vast field of data easily searchable.”
