  • A modern, modular design with distributed processing and no single point of failure.
  • High speed ingestion, search, and export performance regardless of the number of users or data volume
  • Fully managed service with low, predictable cost of ownership
  • An isolated VPC, providing an individual, protected, firewalled environment, with maximized security and control

Integrations & APIs

Smarsh Product Integrations

The Connected Archive is integrated seamlessly with Connected Capture, with support for 80+ communication channels, as well as Connected Apps (Supervision, Discovery and Control) to meet specific business challenges.


In addition to Smarsh product integrations, Connected Archive Private Cloud fits seamlessly into your current and future infrastructure, applications and processes. It comes equipped with full APIs (including SDK and access to developer resources) to power downstream workloads and supports easy integration of custom and third-party content. All archived content gets ingested enriched with metadata to enhance downstream applications.


Context Preservation

All communications content and metadata are preserved in native format, direct from the source. Highlights include complete playback of rich, dynamic conversational context and full transcripts of conversational events (e.g. join/leave, delete).


Granular Policy Management

Highly customizable policies can be enforced across users, groups, networks and other data points to govern the usage of electronic communications. The archive also supports the ability to create and manage geographic policies to meet residency and locality requirements as well as automated disposition upon policy expiration. Specific retention policies can be set depending on your regulatory and business needs.


High Speed Exports

Connected Archive clients have the peace of mind that comes from knowing they can export any (or all) archived data at any time in a variety of file formats (EDRM-XML, EML, HTML, PST, and MSG) and output storage mediums. The archive supports self-service exports at no additional charge and industry-leading export speeds, with the ability to scale to accommodate larger volumes.


Admin, Audits & Reporting

The Connected Archive includes automated identity mapping using identity management services including Active Directory and LDIF import as well as supporting bulk and automated provisioning of content types across entire teams or groups of profiles.

Clients benefit from a full audit trail and reporting on all archiving activities in addition to reconciliation reports to show counts of unreconciled items and their status. The archive comes with dashboard views for visualized reporting and up-to-the minute status updates.


Faceted Search

The Connected Archive supports industry-leading search speeds, even as the number of users and volume of data scales up. Searches can be saved for future re-use and conducted by user, group, network, direction and more. The archive supports full Boolean search operators including wildcard, proximity and search-within-a-search. Granular filtering can be used to eliminate non-responsive content.
