Archive 2-Anywhere Product Suite
EV Edition - How it Works

Enterprise Vault Edition

Archive 2-Anywhere™ Enterprise Vault Edition is the premier email archive migration solution designed specifically to work with the market leading Symantec Enterprise Vault email archiving platform. Archive 2-Anywhere is fully compatible with all capabilities of the Enterprise Vault archive to ensure fast, forensically defensible email migrations directly into Microsoft Exchange personal archives, Office 365, other third-party email archives, PST containers, and EML or MSG formats. Archive 2-Anywhere operates at the object level and does NOT require the use of Symantec API’s. This avoids the problems associated with the Enterprise Vault data extraction APIs, which have been shown to be sluggish and inconsistent, and also lacks defensible reconciliation reporting capability, sometimes required in legal and regulatory situations. Utilizing Archive 2-Anywhere for your Enterprise Vault migration, you can be assured of the highest performance, most complete and legally defensible Enterprise Vault migration available. 

The Archive 2-Anywhere application architecture is based on long established Microsoft technologies and runs on standard virtual or physical servers. It is an application-intelligent solution providing deep integration with Exchange on-premise, Exchange Online and Office 365. Archive 2-Anywhere works with all versions of Enterprise Vault and combines tight application integration, performance and reporting in a single, easy to install solution.

  • Ensuring Coverage of eDiscovery and Regulatory Requirements

    eDiscovery requirements (including legal hold) and regulatory information requests are a constant threat to many organizations and place a great deal of responsibility and risk on the responding party. In the case of regulatory retention requirements, organizations must capture and retain designated records for specific periods of time and be able to respond to agency information requests with the requested documents - quickly. For eDiscovery, it is the responsibility of the responding party to find, secure and turn over all relevant, non-privileged content they have in their position (no matter where it resides) in a reasonable time-frame. This responsibility includes finding and turning over all responsive emails (including all metadata) associated with each message in the state it was normally stored in.

    Both regulatory inquiries and eDiscovery requests demand high levels of expertise and due diligence. They also highlight the inadequacies of many email archiving solutions that were never designed to react in a legally defensible way to queries and data migrations where organizations must ensure complete, unaltered data movement with full chain of custody reporting. Without this, their eDiscovery response could be called into question by opposing counsel.

    When migrating email from an Enterprise Vault archive, extreme care must be taken to ensure all relevant content is found and copied in a way that doesn’t alter it. Unlike many email archive migration solutions, Archive 2-Anywhere is able to find and copy all email data in a forensically sound and legally defensible manner, dramatically reducing the risk of spoliation and incomplete eDiscovery response.
  • Key Benefits of Enterprise Vault Edition

    • Start your migration process quickly. The typical Archive 2-Anywhere installation is up and running in less than 30 minutes.
    • Data extractions are extremely fast, limited only by the receiving repository. Archive 2-Anywhere is capable of running unlimited parallel mailbox extractions on a single server, while utilizing multiple processing threads for maximum throughput.
    • Archive 2-Anywhere extracts raw messages and attachments including all metadata and reconstitutes them into the original Exchange MSG format for complete data extraction.
    • Archive 2-Anywhere is capable of complete, original message fidelity providing a defensible response to eDiscovery and regulatory information requests.
    • Archive 2-Anywhere can restore corrupted emails and create a valid MSG file. Exceptions can result from corrupt folder structures, corrupt or lost message bodies and corrupt or missing sender information.
    • Archive 2-Anywhere maintains a detailed audit trail for compliance and eDiscovery reporting. It tracks the number of estimated items extracted versus the number of items actually extracted and reports the number of items with exceptions.
    • A single user friendly dashboard allows full control and management of the entire extraction process including extraction rules, export targets, and reporting.

  • Message Stub Management

    Like many other email archive solutions, Symantec Enterprise Vault provided the ability to manage Exchange email box sizes by removing email messages and/or attachment from the user’s mailbox to the Enterprise Vault archive while keeping them accessible to end-users by leaving a pointer (or stub) behind for the end-user to click on to access the full email and attachment stored in the archive. With emails and attachments making up the vast majority of data stored on any Exchange server, message stubbing reduced the size of the email store producing a higher performance, more reliable email messaging system.

    But beware…Over time this stubbing capability can create hundreds of thousands or millions of stubs within Exchange triggering a different problem. When it comes time to migrate your Enterprise Vault archive, the presence of stubs will greatly complicate the migration process. For example; how does the migration solution account for and match the millions of stubs in the various Exchange email boxes for just those emails migrated from the Enterprise Vault archive.

    To ensure all stubs in Exchange are matched up and restored with the archived messages in Enterprise Vault, a Stub Rehydration™ process is critical. Archive 2-Anywhere is the only email archive migration solution that can systematically match-up and restore stubs with original archived messages, and remove leftover stubs from the Exchange server, in a forensically sound process.
