Optimize. Flexible SharePoint archiving of SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010 content. Strengthen records management. Improve compliance. Reduce cost.

  • Comply with information governance and records management policies

    by applying retention policies to remediate and fully remove stale content from SharePoint
  • Enhance eDiscovery and legal review

    by exporting archived content into universally accepted file formats as well as LexisNexis and Autonomy systems
  • Reduce total cost of ownership (TCO)

    by utilizing hierarchical storage management (HSM) systems for SharePoint content

    by retiring end-of-life content
