As the end of the year draws closer, the time comes for a little reflection. It’s a time when a lot of businesses look back over their success and review their plans for the coming year. It’s a time of year when a lot of busiensses will start to consider the option of email archiving. And it’s also a time to catch up on things you missed during the year.
With that in mind, we’ve brought together our top five blogs from 2012. Just in case you missed them the first time around.
When researching a blog, most people will search the same channels; industry websites, Google, etc. But the inspiration for this one came from a channel I wasn’t expecting, CBS. This may be the only time a blog about email archiving solutions comes with a spoiler alert, but if you watch The Good Wife and haven’t watched all of season 3, you may want to look away now.
Delete is a scary option. There aren’t many times you’ll swallow hard before clicking ‘ok’, but delete tends to draw that reaction. It may be a generational thing, but most of us are very suspicious of deleting. We’ll create copy upon copy of a document, just to make sure we don’t lose data. Because we know the potential consequences of clicking delete, or even just accidentally clicking ‘Do not save’.
Another strange fact about double deletion is that it is not even effective in its attempt to hide information. Although the information may not be visible to the user it may still be live on your hard drive and there are a multitude of forensic tools available to recover any deleted emails.
Email archive technology performs it’s own magic trick too. A magic trick, as defined by the 2006 movie The Prestige, has three main acts. The pledge, the turn and the prestige define the three stages of a good trick. Email archive technology has the same three stages.
