Google Message Discovery

Just when you think Google has thought of everything, think again. The corporate giant has recently developed an email archiving solution called “Google Message Discovery”. This service allows users to store and refer to emails for up to 10 years and simultaneously provides security software that is designed to protect without unnecessary blockage.

“In a nutshell the service efficiently provides an adequate interface for locating relevant messages. The more interesting staff is once the right content is found it can be viewed and accessed through regular email interfaces like Outlook Express or can be sent to output to a secure FTP server.”

The cost for this service? A mere $45 per user per year. Take a look at what is has to offer. If you’re currently using Google Message Discovery, take a minute and let us know your thoughts. We’re all interested in learning about solutions that make our lives easier.

      Thanks Joanna – let me give some additional “food for thought” on this…once it’s archived, how do you know it hasn’t been tampered with or altered from its original, intended state? Many organizations, large and small, archive email for legal purposes that may potentially arise down the road. Just “archiving” them isn’t enough to prove the organization has the authentic versions. Archiving machines can be “back dated,” and lawyers know it. So how do you protect the integrity and defend the authenticity of that archived content? Add Surety’s AbsoluteProof into that email archiving workflow and you now have legally defensible, trusted time-stamp proof of time of creation. So defending the emails’ authenticity isn’t a problem – Surety even “guarantees” it…check it out… .
