Give me your backups!

image7Backing up data is at the heart of the activities of all businesses. However, the current legislation in the countries where companies are doing business requires respect to strict governance rules in order to comply with the agencies that regulate the markets and ensure the probity of organizations and their activities. One of our clients got a visit from anti-corruption officers, who requisitioned their backups months ago. The nature of the methodology used by the client for their backups is not conducive to find information quickly for the officers, preventing them to give back the copies to the client… To remedy this situation for the future, our client seeks to purchase an archiving solution to not only comply with the law, but above all to be able to recover their data in a reasonable time.
Businesses require increasingly archiving solutions to enforce governance regulations.

Companies are required to cooperate with the authorities and answer of their actions at all times. That’s what the compliance archiving solution provides. It is characterized by the ability to conduct legal research through the history of emails, attachments and files of the company. It also provides a methodology to protect relevant data on legal hold and easily export that information for the people requesting it.

The cost of inaccessibility to the company’s backups, the time required to retrieve the data, perform a search of suspicious documents and start the process over for the next time, is much more expensive than having a compliance archiving system that will perform the same task in minutes instead of hours or even days or weeks. The value added math is simple for our clients.
