Smarsh, helping customers get ahead – and stay ahead – of the risk within their electronic communications, announced that its Enterprise Archive is the first of its kind to bring cloud scale and multi-cloud deployability to the enterprise information archiving space.
The cloud-native architecture of Enterprise Archive creates a secure and scalable platform across multiple cloud infrastructures (public and/or private) to meet the evolving needs of today’s global enterprises. For the first time, organizations can choose to deploy archiving, supervision and e-discovery services on the infrastructures that align with their corporate cloud strategies.
“Global enterprises are making strategic decisions to future-proof their data platforms,” said Greg Vesper, Smarsh Chief Product Officer. “Do you continue investing in highly constrained proprietary infrastructures designed for yesterday’s workloads, or do you leverage cloud-scale, cloud-durability, and geo-redundant storage from the world’s leading cloud providers? With Smarsh, organizations have the control and flexibility to deploy services where they want them.”
Harnessing the Power of Cloud-Native Architecture and Multi-Cloud Deployability
Deploying Enterprise Archive enables customers to future-proof and protect their business in several key areas:
- Class-Leading Security.
Smarsh data security practices, combined with the continuous security investments of the world’s leading providers, enable enterprises to strengthen their security postures across areas such as: data immutability, intrusion detection, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation, multi-level data encryption and key management, continuous monitoring and audit logging, and identity and access control.
- Triple-Active Data Durability.
Enterprise Archive runs simultaneously in multiple data centers distributed across three availability zones with fully elastic capacity, creating high availability and super durability. This triple-active deployment eliminates the cost and complexity of a traditional disaster recovery site, while effectively reducing recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) to zero.
- Geographic Flexibility.
Multinational customers that need to store data and run services in multiple geographic regions to meet regulatory or jurisdictional requirements are no longer limited by historical providers’ data center locations. Rather, they have the flexibility to deploy services worldwide in the data centers operated by Amazon, Microsoft and Google. The AWS Cloud, for instance, spans 69 availability zones within 22 geographic regions around the world, with announced plans for 13 more Availability Zones and four more regions.
Smarsh helps organizations get ahead – and stay ahead – of the risk within their electronic communications. With innovative capture, archiving and monitoring solutions that extend across the industry’s widest breadth of channels, customers can leverage the productivity benefits of email, social media, mobile/text messaging, instant messaging/collaboration, websites and voice while efficiently strengthening their compliance and e-discovery initiatives.
