Archiving Solutions for the Modern Web

Today’s Web is where companies do business, and how they do business. It’s how people connect, share and collaborate. It’s always on, and it’s always evolving.

All of the Web pages, blog posts, images, and interactive elements that your company has invested in shouldn’t disappear with each update. As the Web becomes increasingly real-time, it’s important not to lose our long-term memory.

Today’s Web needs to be preserved, so that your company can tell its story. The modern Web, however, is not intended to be printed, filed or faxed. It should be experienced.

Not Knowing Who Said What Could Be Costly

Corporate instant messaging in the workplace provides productivity and collaboration benefits, but these communications systems need to be archived and supervised for regulatory compliance, e-discovery purposes and to ensure efficient and appropriate use. Not knowing who said what to who can be potentially damaging or costly.

Instant messaging can feature rapid-fire, back-and-forth communication across decentralized public messaging networks. While many firms have found email compliance to be a challenging task, IM archiving compliance can be even trickier. Smarsh IM archiving solutions give you the archiving and supervision tools to enforce your corporate policies, meet regulatory obligations and protect sensitive data.

Mobile Phones & Text Messages Are Ubiquitous

Roughly 5 billion text messages are sent each day in the United States. More and more businesses are looking to leverage the benefits of a mobile workforce, and the device-to-device communication channel is instant and efficient.

Like other means of electronic communication, text messaging creates compliance, governance and legal challenges for organizations. Highly-regulated industries, such as financial services or government, are obligated to preserve communications and to produce these messages when necessary. SEC and FINRA regulations require financial services firms to regularly review their representatives’ electronic messages, document these visual inspections and note any actions that result.
