Proofpoint Enterprise Archive is a cloud-based archiving solution that simplifies legal discovery, regulatory compliance, and end-user information access without the headaches of managing an archive in-house. It provides a central, searchable repository of a wide variety of content types such as social media, SMS, Instant Messaging and enterprise-collaboration communications that allows search in near-real time across more than 500 types of attachments. With Enterprise Archive, organizations know where data is stored and can quickly collect, search, and retrieve that information on demand. It also helps establish and enforce policies and review processes that reflect specific regulatory and geographic market requirements. By streamlining these information management challenges, organizations can reduce the risk of costly fines, adverse inferences and damaged reputations.

With Enterprise Archive’s policy management features, organizations receive assistance with creating, maintaining and—most important—consistently enforcing information retention policies. Enforcement is automatic and based on rules the organization can configure. When data has reached the end of its retention period, high-performance disposition lets teams quickly purge data. Every policy change and disposition action is tracked for a truly defensible disposition process that meets SEC 17a-4 rules.

Additionally, Proofpoint offers Intelligent Supervision and e-Discovery Analytics as optional modules built on top of Enterprise Archive. Intelligent Supervision allows compliance staff to systematically review messages (including email, social media, SMS, and instant messaging). Content selected for review—either as potential policy violations or through a random sampling process—is automatically routed to the users authorized to act on them. Intelligent Supervision also provides reports that help organizations manage the review process and remain ready for regulatory audits.

Proofpoint eDiscovery Analytics provides advanced e-discovery machine learning to empower legal teams. E-Discovery analytics capabilities provide greater insight for litigation readiness strategy, expedites early case assessments, empowers legal teams, and helps businesses achieve proactive litigation readiness.

How we are different

•Search performance guarantee - Other on-premises tools slow down over time and require constant hardware upgrades as the data store grows. Enterprise Archive scales up on demand. Proofpoint’s grid storage architecture and parallel search technology ensure real-time search performance, regardless of how large an organization’s archive grows or how complex its searches get. Proofpoint reduces e-discovery time and cost across all key digital communication channels

•It’s the most secure archive in the industry - With Proofpoint’s patented DoubleBlind™ Key Architecture, Organizations’ data is protected both in transit from its environment and while under management within Proofpoint cloud infrastructure. Each organization’s encryption key is unique. Administrators can manage the encryption key for full control over who can access data within the archive. Proofpoint couples this breakthrough approach with operational and security practices that are SSAE-16 certified.

•Easier analysis with normalized content formatting across communication sources – Proofpoint provides a proven and intuitive e-discovery workflow for legal/HR investigations. Increased insight with real-time search results, integrated early case analytics, and predictive coding through machine learning reduces cost and risk for legal processes.
