Why Traditional Journaling Software are Deficient

Recommendations and Insights Based on Experience and Trust

Old way to Journal


New Way To Journal


Insights from helping 2000+ organizations use the power of the cloud.


Like many regulated organizations, you need to ensure that journaling in the Cloud fully supports your regulatory, compliance and business requirements. As you consider your options, here are some insights based on helping more than 2000 organizations worldwide successfully migrate to and exploit the power of the cloud.

Maintain your on-premises or legacy journal

Option: Maintain a copy of your on-premises archive with your historical journaled data.

Why it doesn’t work: This is an expensive proposition that undermines your plans for digital transformation.  You lose out on potential cost and resources savings you can gain by decommissioning your legacy journal archive. Plus your legal, compliance and HR teams now must search across two separate journals (historical and active).

Maintain hybrid message journals

Option: Stream Office 365 mail to your on-premises Exchange server and maintain a hybrid or on-premises Exchange Service, just for journaling.

Why it doesn’t work: Again, this approach is expensive and inefficient. 

Traditional 3rd party journal archive solutions

Option: Implement a third-party SaaS or “cloud-based” message journaling archive

Why it doesn’t work: You’re risking your organization’s sensitive data to a third-party SaaS-based vendor with obfuscated security controls.  Plus, the majority are unable to securely migrate your legacy journal (they outsource their migrations to other vendors).

Journal Explosion

Option: "Explode" your historical journal and move email into user’s active mailboxes in Office 365.

What are the challenges?

  • It’s expensive and inefficient for your IT team as you deal with 10x increase (on average) in rehydrated mail, create inactive mailboxes for departed employees, manage putting mailboxes on legal hold to try to maintain immutability, and juggle reassigning licenses.
  • Your end users will hate you! It’s confusing and time-consuming for end users who now have to search across duplicate messages.
  • Check with your legal team first. Journal explosion results in the loss of immutability of your journaled mail and is therefore not a viable option
  • Check with your compliance team. If you’re in the Financial Services industry and regulated by SEC Rule 17, journal explosion means that you are now out of compliance.
