Vaultastic for Microsoft 365

Overview

Your use of the M365 applications such as Outlook and OneDrive generate a lot of valuable data that should be archived for data backup, supervision or complaince use cases.

Vaultastic can be configured to receive, store and index email and file data in various stores depending on the data type and the frequency of access.

Email Data

Email data generated using M365 can be broadly classified into 3 categories for archival purposes

  1. Live Email transactions 
  2. Email already delivered to user's mailboxes.
  3. Email exported from mailboxes and stored in OST/PST files.

There are different ways to injest this data automatically or manually to the various Vaultastic stores
