25 May 2011

GWAVA announces the latest release of Retain Message Archiving version 2.5. Retain 2.5 provides archiving for collaboration tools along with significant improvements of its publishing tool.

“With this release of Retain, GWAVA has expanded the ability to archive enterprise messages,” explains Richard Bliss, VP of Worldwide Marketing for GWAVA. “We aren’t just emailing any more. We’re texting and sending instant messages. And these conversations are becoming important as we collaborate in different ways. Retain now archives message data from Microsoft Lync."

Retain now makes it easier to move and restore archives from one email system to another. It also allows customers to store archives from different email systems on a single Retain server.

Retain 2.5 supports Microsoft Exchange 2007 & 2010. In addition to email, Retain archives IM and VOIP data for OCS (Exchange 2007) and Lync (Exchange 2010). Retain also:

  • Provides litigation hold support for both ACL and role-based access control.
  • Offers improvements to the publisher. The Retain publisher has been extensively redesigned with new features including a full searching filter, both PST and PDF export capabilities and redaction.
  • Supports importing and exporting of PST files.
  • Allows any Retain-archived message to be restored into a different target Exchange system. Even GroupWise messages archived with Retain can be restored into Exchange. All Retain-archived messages can be stored on a single Retain server regardless of the system with which they were archived.
