About Smarsh

The way we communicate has evolved. Innovative new tools allow us to work in fast-paced, dynamic and global teams. For modern businesses, this means exponential growth in their communications data. Many aren’t embracing these innovations for fear of the compliance, legal and reputational risk that accompany electronic communications.


We provide companies with a better way to capture, store, and monitor their communications. We enable our customers to focus on innovation and growth, while our industry-leading solutions enable them to manage communications compliance. This has been our core focus for 20 years. We believe that this is more important now than ever.

Smarsh was founded in 2001 by Stephen Marsh. A veteran of the financial services industry, Stephen recognized that traditional regulatory retention and oversight requirements applied to new and emerging communications technology. Firms needed a better way to archive, store and monitor a growing amount of electronic communications data. He founded Smarsh to be a trusted partner that could help businesses embrace this innovation with the right archiving and compliance technology.

Smarsh has grown significantly over the past 20 years. Our solutions have evolved to ensure that we can tackle the constantly shifting compliance challenges facing our more than 6,500 clients; from small businesses to multi-national banks. We have over 1,400 employees worldwide. Collectively, we have unrivalled expertise in implementing SaaS solutions and a deep understanding of the regulatory and compliance issues impacting modern businesses.

Communications technology will continue to evolve. Businesses that can embrace these technologies, manage growing data volume and harness the value in their archived communications will thrive. To achieve this, companies need solutions that leverage the scale and flexibility of the cloud. Smarsh is a trusted partner to each of our customers throughout the process of digital transformation. Our unique industry-leading cloud-native solutions will enable businesses to continue pushing for innovation, with the confidence that they are meeting communications compliance requirements.
