Q2 Product Roundup: WhatsApp, WeChat, Microsoft and more
Each quarter, we publish the highlights of new Smarsh product developments to keep you in the know.
Our product development continued at full speed in Q2 to meet the evolving needs of our customers. We delivered integrations with major communication and collaboration tools, expanded successful partnerships and launched a brand-new product to serve the federal government.
WhatsApp & WeChat
Say yes to easier communication
WhatsApp and WeChat are powerhouses of communication, particularly in EMEA and Asia. However, as encrypted channels, there have been significant roadblocks to reliably capture and archive chats on these technologies. Regulated organizations have traditionally prohibited the use of WhatsApp and WeChat, which has hindered the productivity of employees that want to easily communicate with clients.
In June, Smarsh introduced a new solution to capture and archive WhatsApp and WeChat. Now, regulated organizations can capture and store content from these channels in their native format in the Smarsh Connected Archive. Read more.

Smarsh can now host its Enterprise Archive on Microsoft Azure. There are a variety of benefits to leveraging Azure cloud computing. These include geographic flexibility, high availability and elastic scale, which allows customers to grow the size and speed of their archive with ease. Read more about how large, global organizations can take advantage of the storage, compute, networking and security of Azure and Enterprise Archive.
Additionally, Smarsh joined the Microsoft One Commercial Partner program, which enables the co-sell of Microsoft Azure and the Enterprise Archive. Read more.
