Email Security

Cyren Email Archiving Service

Email archiving is a systematic approach to saving and protecting the data contained in email messages to enable fast retrieval. Email Archiving plays a vital role at organizations in which data permancy and searchability is a prioroty.

The Cyren Email Archiving Service is integrated with Cyren Email Security and enables administrators to locate any email sent or received in a matter of seconds. It also provides for a second copy of emails in a tamper proof storage.

Powerful eDiscovery capabilities ensure that the information is available at all times for instantaneous and efficient search.

The functionality provided by the search interfaces is extensive, empowering all types of users to locate an email by a myriad of different search criteria. 

In case of email service downtime, Cyren email archiving provides a continuous service so that users can send and receive their emails.

A new license called Email Archiving supports Email Archiving eDiscovery and Continuity. 

On line help for the Email Archiving Service can be found in the following chapters:
