Financial services organizations are subject to rigorous retention, supervision and governance obligations for their electronic communications. They turn to Smarsh, recently positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving for the fifth consecutive year, for mission-critical capture and archiving solutions to support compliance and e-discovery initiatives.
Smarsh now supports deployment of its cloud-native Enterprise Archive on Azure, providing customers with unprecedented performance and scale for their unified communications data platform. The Enterprise Archive provides supervision and e-discovery workflows across more than 80 communication channels, captured and retained in their native format with full conversational context.
Among these communication channels, Smarsh offers unique capture capabilities for Teams. Smarsh captures Teams content, including one-to-one chats, multi-party chats and persistent channels. This includes edits, deletes, replies, emojis, GIFs, files, stickers and links. Once ingested into the Enterprise Archive, content is automatically indexed and accessible at any time in a search-ready state.
“Smarsh is proud to be a member of Microsoft’s One Commercial Partner program, and to go to market with Microsoft in support of a common vision,” said Brian Cramer, Smarsh CEO. “Together we will enable the global financial industry to take advantage of the benefits of modern communications by solving the most stringent communications compliance challenges.”
