– The total number of business emails we exchange daily will reach 320 billion in 2021.*
75% of critical corporate information (including sensitive information) is contained in emails that employees exchange daily.

But social media for business is still going strong.

79% of financial advisors acquire new clients on social media.
– The US Government has more than 9000 social media accounts.

Mobile messaging is gaining momentum too.

25% of users would click on SMS links (compared to an average email click rate of 1%).

The Risks of Unstructured Data for Your Organization

– An average cost of a data breach is $3.8 million.
– The maximum penalty for HIPAA compliance violation is now $1.5 million per incident.
– Some Fortune 1000 companies pay $30 million for eDiscovery annually, but 38% of corporations have not employed new eDiscovery technologies.
– The maximum fine for non-compliance with GDPR is 4% of the annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher.

Why Archive Email and Other Unstructured Data?

Defined by Gartner as the “next step in the evolution of archiving”, information archiving is the process in which unstructured data ‒ email, attachments, social media content, mobile messages etc. ‒ is captured, indexed and placed on an appliance or in the cloud environment to ensure secure long-term storage, appropriate access and easy search and retrieval of business-critical information.

Why do companies do it?
Primarily for compliance purposes, but also to improve litigation response, boost employee productivity and enable intelligent corporate governance. According to the Radicati Group, the global market for information archiving is expected to grow to over $6.7 billion by 2020.
