Active! vault enhances “Integrity”, “Searchability,” and “Security” which are key requirements for email archiving. We have realized both high-utility and a low-price by simple and secure design.

Why is Active! gate an excellent choice?

  • Why is Active! vault an excellent choice?

    Of course, archiving all of your emails is an option. But why not just archive the required emails by customizing the settings in the archiving policy? Doing this will realize effective internal control based on the security policy of each individual company or division.

  • Operable without affecting the existing system

    Active! vault adopts an agent system, which transfers emails from the existing MTA and does not inhibit the communication route of emails. You can install it in a short time without changing the existing system. In addition, if any trouble occurs during email archiving, it has no effect as it is independent from the email system, and continuity is maintained.

  • High retrieval performance for locating targeted emails

    A user with special privileges to search archived emails can search and refer emails within the limits of their privileges, and download the search results. The user can also search using advanced setting conditions such as the reception period, email address of sender or receiver, subject, message, attachment, Message ID, or policy. Keyword search of file content is also available. The user can also confirm that email has not been altered in the advanced information screen.

  • Ensuring the prevention of information leakage and privacy considerations

    The number of search users can be up to three. Their accesses are controlled by IP address, term, day of the week, and time zone. Separate to search users, multiple administrators can be created depending on their business role. Separating administrators and the search users enables the archiving system to operate while maintaining confidentiality of data and privacy.
