The Office 365 Ecosystem

Posted by Jacques Sauve

Feb 28, 2017 10:20:36 AM

At this point, it's no secret that Office 365 adoption is on the rise, and Netmail has already helped over 2 million users get there. Netmail has helped customers in education, finance, health, and other sectors,  migrate their legacy or on premises email systems to the Microsoft cloud suite.

But getting there is only part of the story: too many times, customers then face a "What now?" kind of situation. Many organizations don’t fully grasp the value of the entire Office 365 ecosystem.

Data Security vs Computer & Network Security

Posted by Frederic Bourget

Feb 16, 2017 2:30:39 PM

RSA is going on this week. RSA is the big yearly gathering of security vendors and specialists where training and discussion take place big time. When I think about RSA, an image comes to mind. A few years back, during the opening Keynote, Art Coviello, the CEO of RSA, came onstage and made a presentation that left everyone with a strange feeling. For twenty minutes, he made the case for how the security industry was failing. He showed statistics about how data breaches were going up, how there were more vendors in the industry, and how more money was being spent on security without a valid return on investment. What was unsettling is that he did not present any solutions to the problem. He was basically presenting the problem to the audience, who he considered the most important security experts in the industry.

EDRM on its head - Why collect what you don't need?

Posted by Frederic Bourget

Feb 12, 2017 9:49:51 AM

I spent last week at Legaltech 2017, and as usual, when you travel out of the office, you often gain a new perspective on things. The show’s focus was all about eDiscovery. The eDiscovery Reference Model (EDRM) has been a great guide to create a common language of what legal teams with an inside council or outside council are required to do as they prepare a case. The EDRM model, and the organization, has been such a good reference that the terminology and structure has been adopted by internal investigations, information governance, and information security. This has also attracted new technologies that question the current model by bringing exciting new innovations to the market.

The healthcare industry is in danger of being overwhelmed by data. Whether on premise, in the Cloud, or in multiple Clouds, managing that data is a major challenge. Without authorized portals or repositories for data, employees often set up their own storage locations in Box.com, SharePoint, or in Exchange on premise. This type of environment can cause a logistical nightmare to manage, control, store, and search for data in an efficient manner.

Mailbox versus Journal Archiving

Posted by Frederic Bourget

Jan 26, 2017 4:49:41 PM

Organizations archive emails for various reasons. Some do it for storage management, others do it for retention compliance, while others do it to enable eDiscovery & Search. Over time, the reasons for archiving, as well as the technology behind archiving, have significantly evolved. From on-premise only systems to cloud systems, different vendors have offered two ways to archive emails: Journal Archiving and Mailbox Archiving. The choice of the type of archiving you want depends on your objectives for archiving. Both have benefits and drawbacks. In this blog post, I’ll review the differences between the two so that you can make the best decision for your organization.

Top 10 Reasons to Avoid Using PSTs

Posted by Debbie Howlett

Jan 18, 2017 2:53:57 PM

PST files are Outlook data files that are sometimes used for message archiving or for avoiding mailbox quotas. Sounds like a great idea, but PSTs have the potential to cause serious problems from data loss to security risks to compliance issues. If PSTs are posing a problem in your organization, then you should consider eliminating PSTs entirely by migrating and consolidating PSTs to more cost-effective platforms such as Office 365, Exchange 2013 or 2016, or a cloud or on premise archiving solution like Netmail Archive. Here are the top 10 reasons to avoid using PSTs.
