Data Retention & Archiving

Why Use Data Retention & Archiving Technology?


Businesses save data for many different reasons; regulatory compliance, financial reporting, or disaster recovery, which can lead to conflicting and confusing archiving policies. The net result is that users cannot be confident about deletion so they end up saving everything, driving up your data storage costs and risking failure to comply with legal obligations.

By involving users in the classification of their data with Fortra's Data Classification, it is possible to remove the need for ad-hoc application of data retention and archiving practices. By assigning value to information through classification metadata, retention policies can be enforced automatically, employing third-party archiving systems, making your data archiving and retention more efficient, more reliable, and easier to use.
