It’s about three years since the European Union first announced that it was going to do a complete over haul of data protection. Recently the EU has indicated that the widely-awaited General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come to fruition before the end of the year. No matter what your type of business you are in be it financial services, healthcare, the legal sector, manufacturing or the public sector, this legislation is coming & it will have major implications not only for the way data is handled, processed and stored but also on how to deal with requests from individual citizens to search, delete or forward data.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies are becoming a common practice across many organizations. Historically, technological advances within an organization have had a significant impact on increasing budgets. Updating and replacing outdated systems can lead to a large yet necessary expense. Companies are constantly challenged to keep up to date with their evolving clientele. Implementing a BYOD policy has benefited the company as well as the employee in different ways.

We have been talking to customers for over fifteen years about our email and file archiving compliance solutions and we have been listening to IT Managers describing the many challenges they face on a daily basis in managing their email & file data.
