Actiance to Deliver Content From 70-Plus Communication Channels to Office 365

Solution Meets Growing Need for Cross-Channel Communication Compliance

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2015) - Actiance, the leader in compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for all critical business communications, today announced it will enable archiving of non-Microsoft data in Office 365 from instant messaging, social media, collaboration, financial, unified communication and other sources. Actiance will integrate its governance platform with Microsoft Office 365 giving enterprises a comprehensive solution for active compliance, eDiscovery and archiving that enables real-time feature control and contextual capture of messages and data across more than 70 channels. Office 365 customers will easily capture and archive communication from these key sources, while Actiance customers -- who include the top 10 US, top 5 Canadian, top 8 European and top 3 Asian banks -- can automatically export content captured from Vantage® and Socialite® to the Office 365 archive.

"Email now accounts for only a portion of enterprise communication, and heavily regulated environments such as finance, healthcare and state and local government face an increasing need for cross-channel compliance," said Adel Zahabi, director business development, Actiance. "Extending Actiance's proven capabilities to the Office 365 environment lowers the cost of capturing and performing eDiscovery on all the conversations taking place across an array of communication channels, making it much easier to comply with strict regulatory and corporate governance policy."

Through seamless integration, Office 365 users -- previously unable to capture and store non-Microsoft -- can achieve real-time policy enforcement, content monitoring and blocking, regulatory compliance and communication capture across 70-plus leading channels, including:

  • LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook
  • Cisco Jabber, IBM Sametime, Yahoo Messenger and GoogleTalk
  • Salesforce Chatter, Jive and IBM Connections
  • Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg and Symphony
  • Blackberry, Mobile SMS text messages
  • SDK for custom developed communications and chat applications

"As more large enterprises and regulated customers implement Office 365, they're asking for easier ways to archive data from third party sources," said Rudra Mitra, partner director, Office 365, Microsoft. "In response, we've made the Office 365 archiving platform more extensible. Actiance has worked closely with us, and their solution makes it easy for customers to store a wide range of data types in Office 365."

Available by the end of summer 2015, the offering will come free with Actiance Vantage® and Socialite® products for users who have deployed Office 365, along with training, support and deployment services. Actiance customers who currently use Office 365 as their long-term archive will be able leverage their existing Actiance deployment to capture and automatically export their non-Microsoft, or on-premise Microsoft content to their Office 365 environment, based on their compliance policy.
