Smarsh + Slack

Empower team communications for the 21st century

Slack is one of the fastest growing enterprise collaboration solutions. It makes teamwork effortless by hosting all communications, tools, files, images and more on one platform, creating millions of electronic records daily. However, without the right solution in place to govern usage, Slack opens an enterprise up to risk—of breach, data loss, and noncompliance with regulatory mandates. Empower your teams to confidently communicate instantly while guaranteeing regulatory compliance with Smarsh.

Smarsh capture and archiving solutions for Slack enable:

  • Compliant collaboration: Smarsh provides native compliance and governance for all Slack content. Employees can collaborate seamlessly while meeting strict SEC, FINRA, FCA, MiFID II and other records retention compliance requirements. Direct integration supports capture of one-to-one, group and channel communications, along with files that are shared as part of a conversation.
  • Protection for Slack content: API-based capture of all Slack conversations catalogues your content in context, providing more powerful / robust threat and opportunity analysis. Slack content can be automatically ingested, indexed and retained in the Smarsh archive in a “search-ready” state, and is accessible at any time. Policies can be applied at a global level to help meet regulatory, legal and corporate obligations. All content, including in-file text, can be inspected to minimize potential data loss, mitigate compliance issues and quickly alert reviewers to policy violations.
  • Reduction of e-discovery and supervisory complexity: All content is captured in its native format with message threading for context, for a complete view into employee interactions. Content can then be retained in the Smarsh Connected Archive for easy and efficient e-discovery. Content can also be sent to any other archive or ECM solution. An included audit trail tracks all review sessions and actions taken on specific messages. Purpose-built escalation workflows route Slack messages to supervisors for further review. These full supervision capabilities help regulated firms to meet compliance requirements with ease.
