Extend your recordkeeping, compliance, and e-discovery initiatives

Constant Contact is an online marketing platform. It enables organizations to boost sales, strengthen customer relationships, and automate outreach processes to drive business forward. However, without the right capture and archiving solution in place to govern its usage, tools like this open the door to risk for regulated organizations. Smarsh enables you to extend your recordkeeping, compliance, and e-discovery initiatives to the email that your organization sends using Constant Contact. Smarsh capture and archiving solutions for Constant Contact enable organizations to:

  • Communicate compliantly: Email marketing platforms like Constant Contact support an SMTP journaling feature, sometimes called BCC archiving. Smarsh captures all email messages by providing an archiving address to our clients. We can archive messages from any email marketing vendor that supports this functionality. Billing is based on volume of email marketing messages rather than number of users. Your teams can harness the power of Constant Contact while Smarsh helps you to meet strict SEC, FINRA, MiFID II and other records retention compliance requirements.
  • Monitor and protect your business: Archived content is preserved in a search-ready state, policy-checked, and available for quick access and review. With its advanced search, review, policy, reporting and administrative functionality, Smarsh delivers a robust solution for archiving your organization’s Constant Contact content.
  • Automate archiving and reduce review complexity: Constant Contact content is automatically ingested into the Smarsh Enterprise Archive for accurate, fast, and highly effective search, e-discovery and case management. Messages can be flagged and easily escalated for review according to risk and other factors.
  • End-to-end security: Whether data is in transit or at rest.
