E-mail archiving is an indispensable tool in the armoury of any company looking for a secure but accessible way of storing email. It’s also an excellent way to tick a number of the boxes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
I touched on this topic in a recent YouTube video and today the German vendor MailStore have released a new whitepaper detailing exactly how to fully support your GDPR compliance customers, available here.
Never ones to be caught napping, German developer MailStore today announced the release of version 9.5 of MailStore Server, which provides the leading email archiving solution with full support for Microsoft Exchange 2016.
If you’re struggling to manage your mailbox sizes, or just need to keep email for long periods for compliance reasons, you may well have found yourself looking around for an archiving solution of some kind.
There are plenty out there, with many sharing some similarities, however it’s the technical approach of the various products that’s a good method for distinguishing them.
Some of the vendors you’ll come across will employ the use of a technology known as ‘stubbing’. As MailStore Server doesn’t, in this post I’ll take a brief look at what it is, and why it’s German developers have decided against stubbing and instead chosen an alternative route.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) are the the organisation responsible for regulation and protection of all aspects of the financial services industry in the UK. If you’re a company operating in this sector, their somewhat ‘comprehensive’ guidelines aren’t ones you can afford to ignore.
The FCA Handbook covers a wide range of provisions, however in this post I’m going to focus on those that apply to email storage and archiving only – hopefully saving you a little legwork when it comes to checking whether you currently comply.
Yes, for the next few days we’re unashamedly jumping on the bandwagon of our American friends and slashing the cost of new licences by 25% for the brilliantly simple email archiving software, MailStore Server.
