GWAVA & Data2Vault launch UK Cloud Archiving Service to Ensure Data Sovereignty

20 July 2016

GWAVA, today announced that it has accredited Asigra Hybrid Partner, Data2Vault as their GWAVA Cloud Platform Partner in the UK. This solution enables the secure archiving of messages into one repository, from the widest range of message systems and message formats through the Unified Cloud Archive service from Data2Vault.

This solution comes at a critical time with recent changes in the laws regarding Data Sovereignty, concerns over Data Preservation laws, and the implications of Brexit.

This solution is based on the proven Retain Cloud Archiving which has already been delivering Cloud services for years to the North American market. Data2Vault and GWAVA now provide an identical Unified Cloud Archiving Service to the UK market. The solution is operating from UK data centers that are ISO 9001 (Quality), 27001 (Infosec) and 14001 (Environmental management) certified, the Retain Unified Cloud Archive not only supports data collectors for all popular message systems including Microsoft Exchange and Cloud services like Office 365 and Gmail, but also supports data collectors for social media, and smartphone messaging which is a compliance requirement for a number of regulated industries.

The Retain Unified Cloud Archive service also provides advanced eDiscovery and litigation hold plus the ability to print, save, redact, forward and export selected message data for legal or regulatory searches, all within one integrated service for a single service fee.

“Our clients consistently tell us that their messaging applications are among the most critical operational systems they use, securely and automatically preserving all the message data so the organisation has an original copy, even once the user has left, is extremely important for both commercial and compliance reasons.” said Mark Saville, Director, Data2Vault, who also commented, “The GWAVA Unified Archive is already proven in the field as an archive service and by offering the widest range of data collectors and the most advanced eDiscovery tools within one package we believe our channel partners and their clients will see the benefits of adopting this service.”
