In order to assist organizations with compliance and efficiently address eDiscovery requests, Barracuda announced the availability of the new Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service. This week, Barracuda also outlined its Microsoft Office 365 strategic initiative designed to help organizations manage their businesses more easily, securely, and efficiently when moving to, and operating in, Office 365. The new cloud-based archiving service supports the company’s Office 365 initiative and when used in Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, or hybrid environments compliance is easy to demonstrate.
Additionally, end users can have read only access to search and retrieve email at any time from any device, using a web or mobile interface via integration with Microsoft Outlook on Windows, or with native applications for MacOS, iOS, and Android.
“As organizations increasingly move to cloud environments, the need to easily access and protect their email data does not change. Barracuda has a rich history of providing advanced technology to protect on-premises information for many different organizations, and we continue to innovate to help protect data no matter where it resides,” said Rod Mathews, GM Data Protection, Barracuda. “The new Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service extends our cloud strategy and helps organizations address a variety of compliance and eDiscovery requirements, particularly as many organizations are transitioning their businesses to run on cloud platforms like Office 365. The new service enhances Office 365 with the additional functionality needed to support sound information governance practices, and supports on-premises, cloud-only, and hybrid deployments.”
Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service provides extensive search and discovery capabilities outside of the operational environment on a separate secure archive copy of the data. Barracuda recommends this industry best practice to ensure there is no conflict between data retention for operational compliance and legal search and discovery exercises. As a result, customers can demonstrate the accuracy and completeness of data returned for each search.
Developed with end user productivity in mind, Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service includes integration with Microsoft Outlook on Windows, and native applications for MacOS, iOS, and Android, which allow for read only access to search and retrieve email at any time from any device. The new service is ideal for organizations using on-premises Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, or hybrid combinations.
