Symantec Launches Two New Storage Tools

Symantec will help companies store data with two new tools: Enterprise Vault 9.0 and Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector.

The tools are the latest releases in Symantec’s Information Management Strategy, which aims to enable companies to efficiently search and delete, protect information and reduce redundancies.

“Discovery, preservation, retention and disposition strategies have to span multiple content sources in order to be effective,” said Brian Babineau, senior analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. “Organizations that archive only one data type and ignore another simply because of technology limitations are failing to maximize IT and legal discovery related cost reductions.”

Enterprise Vault 9.0 combines email with archived content sources into one central database, allowing for easier searches, supporting internal investigations and reducing costs.

Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector searches and locates information stored on computer desktops, SharePoint sites and other repositories.

“Archiving is the foundation of a comprehensive information management strategy and allows organizations to delete confidently,” said Brian Dye, vice president of product management, Information Management Group, Symantec. “Enterprise Vault 9.0 and the new Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector enable IT and legal departments to jointly develop and enforce retention policies, closing the gap between technology and policy to reduce risk.”
