GWAVA Announces the Retain Archive App

15 September 2016

GWAVA Inc, the leading provider of archiving, security and eDiscovery for electronic communication, today announced the Retain Archive App. This app provides users and administrators direct access to view, browse, search, forward, and print their Retain Archived messages from any Android, or iOS tablet or mobile device.

“The Retain Archive App is a welcome addition to the Retain Unified Archiving solution,” said Ken Muir, GWAVA CEO. “With more and more people accessing work data on mobile devices, it is essential for employees to access all of their communication data, both live and archived, from their mobile device. The Retain Archive App gives users the ability to easily access their archived email, social media and mobile messages on their phone or tablet.”

The Retain Unified Archive has always been readily accessible, via the browser-based web access client, through the Offline Archive Viewer and through the portable, stand-alone archive viewer. Now, with the new Retain Archive App, users and administrators can have direct access to the archive from an Android or iOS tablet or mobile device. This app allows users to view, browse, and search their personal archive, while allowing administrators to view, browse and search the entire archive. The Retain Archive App also allows for message and attachment forwarding and printing.

Retain provides unified archiving of all business communication including email, social media, and mobile communication data for case assessment, search, and eDiscovery. It can be deployed on-prem or in the cloud. This includes email archiving for Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Gmail and Micro Focus GroupWise platforms. Retain Mobile archives mobile device communication data for Android, BlackBerry, and iOS, including SMS/text messages, BBM Messages, BBM Protected, phone call logs, and PIN Messages. Retain Social provides monitoring and data insight into message context and tone of all posts for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Vimeo, Flickr, Pinterest, and Google+ (on and off network).

With the Retain Archive App users and administrators have access to messages that are no longer visible in the mail application, or that have been deleted, along with historical mobile and social media messages, giving complete access to the archive, from any Android or iOS mobile device.
