Each page is automatically time stamped as it is captured and a customizable capture frequency can be set per website, whether your organization requires capture daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.

Onboarding is simple and easy with configuration support through the Smarsh implementation team. Web Archive is cloud based, with no software to install or configure.
