E-mail archiving is more than just disburdening mail servers. In many countries, law requires that all relevant digital communication must be electronically archived – unalterably and audit-compliant.This includes, in particular, business e-mails. The required technological equipment for this is still exorbitant, especially for medium-sized businesses. Hornetsecurity’s E-Mail Archiving Service makes compliance affordable.
Requirements are high
Compliant E-mail archiving requires verifiably unmodified and inalterable storage over a long period – 6, 10 or even 30 years. Many companies archive E-mails in printed form on paper, some store them on the mail server, in their employees’ personal folders or by making backups. This might prevent data losses, but the required inalterability is not provided. Most mail servers allow modification of e-mails – once an e-mail has arrived on the company’s mail server, audit-safe conditions are not given anymore. Furthermore, it is often unclear which e-mail might be needed at a later time. Employees are usually not able to make this decision with sufficient certainty.
Required long storing periods are a further challenge. Seemingly favourable cheap systems are usually not able to guarantee data integrity over the required long period of time. And larger and more reliable systems as often used in bigger companies are not affordable in SMB environments.
