McAfee SaaS Email Archiving

McAfee SaaS Email Archiving

Limitless storage, no hardware required

Next Steps:


Businesses can easily generate thousands of new email messages every day. Storing these messages in-house — and finding messages in the archive to meet business, regulatory, and legal needs — is a huge drain on resources. McAfee SaaS Email Archiving provides unlimited, in-the-cloud storage for your mail. This easy-to-use and cost-effective message archiving service is always up, never grows obsolete, and doesn’t require the ongoing management and maintenance associated with hardware-based solutions, such as tape backups.

Tamperproof storage to meet compliance — SaaS Email Archiving securely pulls messages from your server and stores them using 256-bit encryption. Dual commit message capture ensures emails aren’t deleted from your server until accurate copies are made and verified. This integrated data security prevents message tampering, reduces legal liabilities, and helps ensure compliance with federal and industry regulations covering email communications.

Powerful email discovery — Search features expedite finding specific messages for review, compliance, and e-discovery. Easily access a single message — or thousands of messages — in seconds, using either simple or advanced search criteria, including sender, recipient, date range, message content, and even attachment content.

Simple, scalable email archive management — Set up and maintain your email archiving solution with unparalleled ease. Reduce administration efforts with an intuitive, easy-to-use console, integration with Microsoft Outlook 2003 – 2013, and common email configurations. With unlimited, in-the-cloud storage, SaaS Email Archiving scales appropriately to fit your needs, so you’ll never see declining performance as your email archive grows.
