A Message from our CEO

Welcome to our Q2 newsletter. I can summarize the first half of 2021 as constant change and more of the same! On the one hand, many of us are returning to the office and, like the rest of my team, it’s great to be able to meet again in person. However, as a global organization, we wrestle with the almost daily changes in protocol that affect if and where our staff can travel and what precautions we need to take. On the other hand, the data breaches and ransomware attacks seem to dominate my daily newsfeed. Data security concerns increasingly almost every customer conversation we have, whether it’s discussing concerns about migrating on-premises data loads to Azure, implementing unified archiving for compliance, data supervision and surveillance, records management or eDiscovery and centralized searches.

As we head into the second half of 2021 and plan for 2022, Archive360 remains committed to maintain our focus of outstanding customer care and constant innovation – including around data security. Working with our partners around the world, as well as directly with Microsoft’s Azure team, we are helping you achieve your goals for digital transformation.

Many of you share with me and my team what “digital transformation” looks like. Here’s an extract from an email I recently received from one of our global customers headquartered here in New York:

“Migrating the third largest repository of data in the firm from on-premises to the cloud required exceptional help and expertise. We had accumulated technical debt with an aging system, particularly in cyber security and performance aspects. A replacement system needed a previously unachievable elasticity while improving data protection and simultaneously reducing costs. These seemingly incompatible requirements and desires were met with the Archive360 system in Azure. It was only possible with the level of specific Azure security and networking expertise we leaned on with our Archive360 partners. Our anticipation of this system being the largest repository of data in the firm in the next year, measured in tens of petabytes, has become an even better decision than we ever anticipated at the outset.”

Data Is the New Oil, and That Makes It an Environmental Hazard

Data is valuable. However, it can become old, lose its value, and even become risky to keep. Today's companies have little idea of the data volumes and types they’re storing, how long they’ve had it, and how sensitive it is.  In this featured article from Toolbox Tech, Bill Tolson, VP of Global Compliance and eDiscovery, Archive 360, discusses why all organizations should be actively managing their data.


Product Highlight

Advanced eDiscovery Software In The Cloud

Today’s eDiscovery requirements are changing. When it comes to eDiscovery response times and costs, your organization faces multiple challenges:

  • budgets are declining across the board despite the growing need for eDiscovery in the wake of COVID-related litigation
  • how to efficiently handle the exponential growth rate of disparate data
  • teams must be able to cull through multiple file and data types (structured and unstructured data: i.e. voice, video, images, etc)
  • the new age of a remote or hybrid workforce means teams need to access data from anywhere
  • disparate data repositories prevent collaboration within and across departments 

Managing your eDiscovery process to address today’s changing needs not only allows you to increase the efficiency of your turn around times, it also helps reduce  compliance risks.

Archive360’s eDiscovery platform provides fast, accurate, defensible data collection, early case assessment, litigation hold, and eDiscovery case management.
