How is journal archiving in Azure different?

With Office 365, many organizations enable Legal Hold across their entire tenant, which is not the best solution for search and discovery. Bishop offers a solution that allows you to journal in Azure and enabling discovery capabilities, regardless of what your license level is in Office 365.

How it works

  1. Establish SMTP servers to capture messages in EML format from Exchange or Office 365 and write them to file storage
  2. Message queue captures the messages on the SMTP server with envelope processing
  3. Messages are sent via the virtual cloud gateway to Azure
  4. Search with a powerful eDiscovery interface without purchasing E5 licensing

What you can do with journaling in Azure

  • Auditing and litigation hold
  • Custodian and Keyword Search
  • Policy-scoped indexing
  • Hit Highlighting and ranking
  • Cases, case export and case level authority
  • WORM retention
