SonaVault Email Archiving & eDiscovery Done Right

"Now organizations can archive all their email within the public folders but limit the access of who can see the archived public folders.”


Sonasoft Corp. (OTCPK:SSFT) announced that it has developed a new feature to its email archiving and eDiscovery solutions that allows granular access control to archived public folders.


(As published on PRWeb)
August 31, 2015 - San Jose, California, Sonasoft Corp. (OTCPK: SSFT), a leader in enterprise-class eDiscovery and email archiving software solutions, announced the expansion of a new granular access control feature that heightens security to archived public folders. This new feature allows administrators strict granular access control over the archived public folders. Organizations now can retain email within their archived public folders in preparation for a legal hold or an eDiscovery request, but at the same time, restrict access to other employees, who do not have a need to view these documents. This new feature is expected to be released within sixty days, and it will be a no-cost upgrade for all of Sonasoft’s existing eDiscovery and email archiving customers.

“Sonasoft takes the input from its customers very seriously”, said Bilal Ahmed, CTO and Vice President of Engineering. “We had a feature request to retain all email in the archived public folders, but limit the access to these archived emails to authorized users only. Our development team then took up this challenge. We were able to draw on our expertise of granular control access to our email archiving application and then apply this feature set to the access of archived public folders. Now Sonasoft’s customers can still retain these emails for compliance purposes, but not allow these documents to be accessed by just anyone.”

“The very nature of public folders is to make certain email very accessible to everyone within an organization”, said Douglas MacKallor, Director of Internet Marketing. “Inevitably, someone within a company will put an email or document in the public folders that is either sensitive or inappropriate. Understandably, sometimes certain emails in the public folders need to be removed. Companies often find themselves in a catch-22. They need to retain these emails for legal compliance, yet they do not want everyone to access them in the archived public folders. Based on the input from one of our customers, Sonasoft developed a solution that addresses this need. Now organizations can archive all their email within the public folders but limit the access of who can see the archived public folders. This is just one more way that Sonasoft offers technical innovation to its enterprise-class email archiving and eDiscovery solutions.”
