New Auto Storage Management Capability

With this release,  the auto storage management capability of the solution has been advanced.

When copying data from the Active Store to the Open Store, data can now be organized in two ways.

If you choose Vault as the option, the Open Store will have a separate data file corresponding to each vault on the Active Store. Each will contain one month of data transacted by the user associated with the vault.

If you choose Domain as the option, the Open Store will have a single data file for each day of the month. The data file will contain all the emails transacted by all the users of the domain on that day.

The Domain option results in lesser storage consumption on the Open Store.

15th November 2022 : Version

New Feature for Faster Searches on Vaultastic Open Store

The Vaultastic Open store typically stores compressed packages of email (PST or EML files) and file data (documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc.). When you ingest this data on the Open store using LegacyFlo, a content-list (in a CSV) is also associated with each package (data) file to enlist the package contents with crucial information.

E.g., will have an associated content-list called john_july_2022_data.csv.

Until now, your IT team had to locate the package (zip/pst) file and its associated content-list (CSV) to find any email or a specific file. They had to download the CSV file, open it using a spreadsheet, and search for information using the attributes (mail and file attributes like from, to, date, subject, file name, etc.).

This multi-step search is now made much easier by giving a new tool in the Open Store application to view the contents of a package file directly in the interface, where you can browse and search for the required information.

Locate the CSV file corresponding to the package (zip/pst file) of interest to access this tool and click on the "eye" icon. This action will pop up a window in which you will be able to see the content list and also search through it.

New Features

Ensure compliance management with Vaultastic

Organizations need to manage the risk related to information leakage and ensure regulatory compliance about supervision and reporting of email communications:

Regular proactive audits of email communication are crucial to mitigating conduct, reputational, and financial risks.

To ensure compliance, organizations often need the help of external experts, auditors, and enforcement agencies to review potential policy violations and decide the course of action.

Vaultastic v4.6.0.0 integrates Ideolve, a team collaboration tool that can help you share critical and classified email information with external people while maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of the data.

This integration also enables you to manage the compliance loop from flagging (possible) violations to reviewing the objectionable content to discussing a way forward and finally resolving the breach.

Ensure compliance management with Vaultastic 4.6

This topic explains the compliance monitoring use case in-depth and provides step-by-step instructions on setting up the integration and designing the SOPs to manage regulatory compliance.
