Businesses rely on their email, and keeping a record of it is crucial. Email archiving isn’t just for companies working in regulated industries. It has a broader application, not only helping to maintain a store of knowledge within the company, but also acting as a governance tool within the company. A good email archive can mitigate risks for all companies in several areas, protecting them against future disputes and legal cases, and also securing their intellectual property. In the past, many companies have archived their emails on their own premises, but moving an email archiving initiative to a specialist cloud-based service provider can have many advantages.
