for K-12 educators and
administrators to help
create safe learning
Without a third-party archiving solution, it will be difficult to remove content related to the safety and well being of your students. Your retention rules and litigation hold policies—whether at the organizational unit (OU) level or by the user—will make it virtually impossible to remove this unwanted content.
There’s an increasing expectation from the courts that document files and even social media also get retained. The burden falls on the school district and retention is not enough. You must also be able to search and produce specific data just like we have for email for the past decade.
Teachers, administrators and other staff will take new jobs, retire and give IT departments other reasons to delete or suspend their email accounts. Fortunately, there are plenty of similarities with the two most common email systems, Office 365 and Google, regarding how to handle a departing employee.
We often work with school districts that have staff using a product such as Office 365 while students get Gmail accounts. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when you have email from more than one system that you want to be part of one email archive.
Google has released some new Vault features that likely caught the eye of K-12 technology directors and email administrators. The biggest announcement that certainly got our attention was that Vault is now able to retain data in Google Drive.
Third-party archiving solutions reduce overall costs, including labor, hardware and software. Get the data that you need much quicker, take the security concerns off your hands, and use a third-party archive that doubles as a backup and disaster recovery solution.
