Retention, Fast Data Discovery and Ease of Implementation
“Before Waterford Technologies it was an absolute nightmare to archive everything, as we were using PST files to adhere to federal retention regulations. There was no centralization of data and search was impossible, Waterford Technologies is a blessing in disguise for the City of Pembroke Pines.“Joseph Hahn, Network Administrator
Pembroke Pines, Florida
The City of Pembroke Pines was established on January 16, 1960, it behaves as the regional government’s legislative branch and its ideology-making entity dedicated to serving the broad needs of the Pembroke Pines community. Named “one of the best cities to live in America,” Pembroke Pines is home to over 170,000 residents.
As a government organization, the City of Pembroke Pines has a legal requirement to retain all the emails for document retention. They must be able to provide a record of correspondence according to federal state law. The major challenge, therefore, was to have software on board that can fulfil the need for data retention, fast eDiscovery, and easy implementation.
When searching for a solution, the main agenda of Pembroke Pines was to consolidate all of their emails into one central repository and retain them as public records. After careful research evaluating other providers, Joseph Hahn and his team chose Mailmeter from Waterford technologies to assist Pembroke Pines with accomplishing their goals to deal with email search requests and data management.
Pembroke Pines, a government body, needed a product that could solve the problem of email retention and indexing while also reducing storage consumption on the email server and meeting the compliance requirements for retention, review, and monitoring of data. After careful evaluation, Joseph and his team decided to deploy MailMeter from Waterford technologies to move away from PST files, automate email retention, improve control, and search through their emails and attachments from a single repository.
