    • Addressing the Abandoned Email Archive Risk
    Addressing the Abandoned Email Archive Risk
    Stand-alone, on-premise email archiving solutions are quickly becoming outdated, either because the vendor no longer supports the email archive or because there are much better solutions available. For those companies sitting on old email archives, the question is what to do with their existing email archive; do they spend the money to keep it running as they move to newer technologies, or do they shut it down and walk away from all of that archived data. Neither option makes much sense. Keeping an obsolete email archive active to retain access to the archived information is both costly and risky. Shutting down and walking away from an obsolete email archive carries with it additional legal liabilities. The right way to move beyond the obsolete email archive is to migrate all data to another repository, or a staging area for further processing, then shut it down, and repurpose the hardware so that the original archived data is destroyed and not subject to discovery. Email archive migration is a specialized process and should only be done with trusted vendors and solutions. Keep reading for an in-depth discussion about best practices for email archive migration.
