Google Vault

What is Google Vault?

Google Vault is an additional feature for Google Apps users that lets you retain, archive, search and export your company's email and chat messages.

Who is Google Vault for?

Google Vault is for any business that needs to securely store their email and chat messages.

In the past business email users were confined to using their emails either on their work computers or home computer, but now with the rapid developments in technology we are able to access our emails on our phones, tablets, pc’s and laptops.

This is great but what if you lose your phone, tablet or laptop, or you connect these devices to an unsecure wireless network in a café, restaurant / hotel and allow others to access your emails and delete them?

To get round this problem Google has created Google Vault.

With Google Vault if your device is lost or stolen or even hacked all your emails are kept safe on Google servers and can be retrieved in these circumstances.

Google Vault - Key features

Retention Rules: Set rules to how long a email remains in your domain.
Matter: A Matter is a container which holds data related to a specific topic.
Litigation Hold: If a user deletes held data, the data is removed from the user's view, but it is not deleted from Google servers until the hold is removed.If a user is removed, all the user's data is deleted including any archived on the server, even though a litigation hold may be in place.
