Stay connected and compliant from anywhere

Skype is one of the most popular IM platforms in use by organizations of all sizes. However, without the right solution in place to govern its usage, the popularity of platforms like Skype opens enterprises up to risk. Smarsh helps reduce the risk of data loss, breach, and non-compliance with regulatory mandates so employees can communicate with confidence. Smarsh supports Skype as well as Skype for Business. Smarsh capture and archiving solutions for Skype enable:

  • Comprehensive Compliance: Smarsh provides native compliance and governance for Skype content. All content can be sent to the Smarsh Connected Archive to help meet FINRA, SEC, MiFID II and other regulatory mandates. The quick search and display of contextual data make supervision and reconciliation functions more efficient.
  • Monitoring of Skype content: All content can be inspected for sensitive information, suspicious behavior, and/or abusive language. Administrators can review policies that flag keywords across messages and in-file text to pinpoint any violations.
  • Automated archiving and fast, effective supervision and e-discovery: All content and activity can be automatically sent to the Connected Archive for fast and accurate search, supervision, e-discovery, and case management. The preservation of all content in context makes for faster, more effective review.
