Business FAQs


What is email archiving?

We define email archiving as the process of ingesting, indexing, and storing email information into a database in order to make it accessible and searchable for a variety of uses. These uses could include email recovery, compliance or audit related activities, early case assessment for litigation discovery, communications monitoring, and personal productivity.

Why did SAVE IT choose to host its platform on the Amazon Cloud?

We chose to leverage public cloud computing in general (rather than build our own cloud) in order to maintain focus on our core competency; providing simple yet sophisticated email archiving and management software.  Tapping into the public cloud enables us to benefit from the scale that the cloud affords, resulting in lower prices, higher availability, and improved performance for our customers.  Amazon is currently the only cloud provider that meets our requirements for scale, security, overall maturity, and a commitment to open standards. Other providers continue to advance, and we expect to deploy SAVE IT to additional clouds in the near future.

Top of FAQs

Is the SAVE IT archive secure?

All user data is kept encrypted and safe at all times. SAVE IT uses Secure Socket Layers (SSL) to encrypt all communication being transferred to or from the data centre, and a processing pipeline that ensures performance and data privacy between customer accounts. All data in the archive is encrypted with military grade (AES 256-bit) encryption with no shared encryption keys across customers to maintain the security and privacy of customer data.

All the data centres employ state-of-the-art security, are ISO27001 certified, meet FISMA and SAS70 Type II standards and adhere to the privacy principles of the European Union Safe Harbour Framework.

What makes the SAVE IT archive different from other solutions in the market?

Our archive is easier to deploy, easier to use, and more cost-effective than other solutions available on the market today.  We deliver these benefits through the use of true cloud computing technologies. We are different from legacy “on-premise” systems in particular in that archiving is delivered as a service via the web, meaning that the customer is not required to install, configure, maintain or upgrade dedicated hardware or software.  We are also compatible with a wider variety of email platforms than other vendors.

Top of FAQs

Which email platforms does SAVE IT support?

What is the difference between Exchange 2010 native archiving and SAVE IT archiving?

Microsoft Exchange 2010 provides a small subset of Exchange customers (those who use Outlook 2010, have paid for CAL licensing, and have local DAS storage available) with a basic archiving functionality that eliminates the need for PST files and addresses several eDiscovery scenarios. Microsoft Exchange 2010 is not deemed sufficient to meet compliance requirements due to its inability to enforce email retention policies or to demonstrate a clear audit trail.
SAVE IT on the other hand is a full-featured information archive and eDiscovery service that meets all compliance requirements and eliminates the need for local archiving infrastructure and is compatible with all popular email platforms.

Where are SAVE IT’s data centres located?

Our technology provider, Amazon Web Services, have data centres located in Asia Pacific (Australia, Singapore and Tokyo), the EU (Ireland), the US East (Northern Virginia), the US West (Oregon and Northern California), and South America (Sao Paulo). As a security measure, the specific location of the data centres is not advertised.
