Enterprise Vault 8.0

Symantec's Enterprise Vault is the leading email archiving product. The company recently announced V8.0, which is currently in beta. General availability is scheduled for early 2009.

New features include:

  • Advanced Storage Reduction. With its optimized single instance storage, Enterprise Vault keeps just one copy of individual emails or files regardless of the number of times it occurs or from what content source it originates.
  • Seamless End-User Experience. Vault will continue its open beta for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices, providing on-the-go search at any time and from anywhere. Full support for mobile devices will be made available during the first half of 2009. Enterprise Vault also offers seamless online and offline access to archived items from interfaces like Outlook, Notes, or Windows Explorer, so users perceive no separation between live and archived information.
  • Intuitive E-Discovery with Guided Review. Leveraging the industry's first Guided Review feature as part of Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator, users can analyze and filter search results to quickly drill down to the most relevant content with a few simple clicks of the mouse, helping to further reduce the costs and risks of e-discovery.
  • Simplified Installation and Administration. Vault now offers wizard-based configurations with default settings based on industry best practices, letting administrators get Enterprise Vault up and running in minutes. Further simplifying administration is a new Common Tasks dashboard that provides quick access to common tasks and operations within Enterprise Vault.

Symantec appears to be responding well to customer and market requests. In this regard, we particularly like the de-duplication and simplified installation, areas in which Vault has been subject to criticism.
