E-mail and electronic messaging are leading contributors to the deluge of information subject to industry and government regulations. E-mail, instant messaging, wikis, and blogs are all considered electronically stored information (ESI), subject to inquiry in court cases involving matters ranging from personnel issues to trade secrets.
Because failure to produce requested data can result in lost cases and costly penalties, companies need comprehensive policies that enable them to archive, search and classify e-mail, files and other content. This issue is becoming more critical as litigation costs and the number of employees whose data must be protected rise for organizations of all sizes.
Dell and its partners offer solutions for e-discovery and compliance to facilitate access, management and retention including the ability to set automated policies for retention, hold and deletion.
- Reduced risk of evidence spoliation through the improved ability to implement and manage litigation holds on ESI
- Preserved and recorded digital signatures for all metadata to ensure no loss of data
- Vendor-specific retention attributes that can be set automatically through deep integration
- Automated expiration and destruction of records upon the expiration of retention policies
