Proofpoint, Inc., a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, launched an extensive software enhancement to its cloud-based†Proofpoint Enterprise Archive solution to simplify e-Discovery and improve defensibility, giving organizations an unprecedented capability to save time and reduce costs.
“Our streamlined e-Discovery and workflow is a game changer, because while most e-Discovery cases are settled before they go to trial, organizations still have to devote significant resources to resolve them,” said Darren Lee, senior vice president and general manager of Information Archiving and Governance for Proofpoint. “Our new enterprise archive lets customers use the e-Discovery module in-house to complement Microsoft Office 365 and conduct early case assessment on their native archive, massively reducing the time and costs associated with e-Discovery cases. As user experience is also critical, our enhanced mobile support and new visualizations will help compliance teams address inquiries faster.”
Proofpoint Enterprise Archive 4.0†is a fully automated solution that identifies, collects, preserves, and manages electronically stored information (ESI) and data. It works across the industry’s broadest number of digital information sources, including email, enterprise collaboration data, and social media data. Today’s enhancements include:
- New e-Discovery and analytics visualizations
- An updated user interface to simplify workflow and use for administrators
- Improved legal hold processing
- Mobile support for iOS and Android devices
With an architecture built to leverage the cloud, keep control of data, and easily migrate data to the cloud, Proofpoint’s solution is less costly to operate than legacy archiving tools. It works faster, is more reliable, automates manual tasks, and scales up as customers’ needs grow. This is one of the many reasons Proofpoint was recognized for the sixth year running by industry analyst Gartner, in the Leaders Quadrant in its†2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving.
