eDiscovery and Legal Hold for Documents: Proofpoint Content Collection Extends Proofpoint Enterprise Archive Power to Files
Today, Proofpoint announced a new option for Proofpoint Enterprise Archive that extends that cloud archiving solution's eDiscovery and legal hold capabilities beyond email, to the vast world of document files (see, "Proofpoint Announces First, Targeted, Content Collection Solution to Enable eDiscovery of Unmanaged, In-Place Documents").
The new Proofpoint Content Collection option for Proofpoint Enterprise Archive allows users to locate and collect content stored in a wide variety of repositories -- including desktop and mobile hard drives, shared drives, removable drives and Microsoft SharePoint -- and then easily manage and enforce legal holds on that content, regardless of where it resides in the organization.
Proofpoint VP of product marketing, Kevin Epstein, put together this brief video demo that shows the new capabilities:
Quoted in today's news announcement, Proofpoint's EVP of product management, David Knight explained, "The new Content Collection option for Proofpoint Enterprise Archive reflects our broad, on-going commitment to the governance of all unstructured information. Operating in conjunction with Proofpoint Enterprise Governance, this tool eliminates the need for enterprises to create bloated archives based on 'store everything' policies, while at the same time ensuring that relevant material will always be available for ediscovery when needed. It's an approach that’s less costly and more efficient."
