Leverage cloud services to reduce maintenance, protect bandwidth, and free up resources to work on strategic business initiatives.

Product Summary

Google Vault is a secure, hosted service that provides enterprise-grade spam and virus protection as well as comprehensive email archiving for organizations looking for cost-effective email management and significant advantages over onsite server or media-based email archiving. Google Vault lets you:
  create a centralized and searchable email repository for your organization
  quickly search across the archive to find emails and save result sets
  secure your email from spam, viruses, phishing, and other email-borne threats
  set central email policies to manage content and compliance requirements
Google Vault is hosted in the cloud and built on a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, so there's no need to forecast or plan for future storage needs. Google's secure and redundant data centers keep your messages fully protected and backed up, removing the risk of loss due to onsite server failure. Data ownership remains with your organization so you retain the control over your information.

You can archive mail without worrying about disk space, and can eliminate storage quota headaches by giving users easy access to archived email. What's more, by removing aged mail from your servers, you can decrease both backup windows and recovery times.

Google Vault also includes a complete set of email security features, so you can provide the highest levels of security for your email systems – without installing expensive hardware or software. This lets you block spam, viruses, and other external threats before they reach your organization and ensure proprietary information that must remain confidential stays within your organization.
