Office 365 allows users to access all the familiar creation, collaboration and productivity applications of Microsoft® Office from virtually anywhere through the cloud. While Office 365 offers some archiving, security and encryption capabilities, they are limited and may not meet stringent FINRA or SEC regulatory compliance requirements.
Comprehensive archiving for your Office 365 environment
Fully integrate envelope journaling, secured transport via TLS encryption, and robust functionality in Office 365—including Outlook, Yammer, Lync and Skype for Business —without managing on-premise software or hardware. All metadata and recipient data is captured, including BCC and distribution group recipients. Data-loss prevention (DLP) and email encryption policies can also be applied to manage sensitive data in business-critical communications.
“Our branches can effectively search their mailboxes for specific incidents on their own. The Smarsh Archiving Platform enhances our ability to perform searches and find what we need across email and social media, so it acts as both an e-discovery and compliance tool.”
ValMark Securities, Inc. provides integrated broker-dealer services for over 100 Member Offices or branches across the Unites States. At ValMark, each independently owned Member Office manages its own staff and technology infrastructure. With no centralized IT management and over 100 independent branches using various email platforms, archiving became a technology challenge, creating help desk issues for ValMark’s IT staff and uncertainty for its compliance team.
