GFI Archiver

With GFI Archiver, all company emails and files are automatically stored in a central, secure environment that can be accessed quickly and searched easily. Businesses gain peace of mind knowing their vital company information is stored in a safe and manageable place.

GFI Archiver works in parallel with Microsoft® Exchange, Office 365™, Google Apps™ and other email servers to copy all emails that are sent and received in a separate server. This enables you to create space on your email server to increase performance, while providing excellent scalability and reliability for your archive store. Storage costs are significantly reduced through single-instance storage (SIS), which stores just one copy of an email sent to multiple recipients and compresses attachments.

  • Archiving for email, files and calendars – GFI Archiver archives emails, files and calendar entries. Its File Archiving Assistant (FAA) enables you to share files between users and store them centrally and safely without relying on online storage providers.
  • Secure archiving for compliance – Minimize legal risk. Archive emails and files in their original state – in a central, tamper-proof store – to help with compliance, e-discovery and internal investigations.
  • Email and file history – Your users’ email history and old file versions are always available for quick retrieval via the GFI Archiver interface.
  • Identify business issues – Your archive is an incredible source of business intelligence. Identify legal risks and manage productivity with reports that draw from the business-critical information in your archive.
  • Reduce risk – Enjoy peace of mind that stored emails are genuine and tamper-free with message-auditing functionality.
  • Save money – Save on storage costs by keeping just one central copy of an email and its attachments. Minimize storage needs with email compression.
  • Advanced search features – Every message, attachment and file is automatically indexed before it are archived, enabling you to search and retrieve faster.
