  • Gmail and email archiving might NOT be a winning solution

    In a recent article from Business Insider, Google announced that a bug in their Gmail system resulted in user’s emails being automatically deleted or sent to a spam folder. Even though Google was quick to fix the problem (and assure users that it would not happen again) many consumers are now concerned that Gmail and email archiving might not be a winning solution.

    It seems that the news is bombarded with nationwide successful companies experiencing technical problems that result in consumers losing valuable information. Target Corporation and Michaels recently announced that systems had been hacked and customer’s financial information had been compromised. This most recent glitch from Google begs the question if you can’t trust Google with your email, how can you trust Google with your email archiving? These “glitches” are more than small mistakes; they may ultimately cost you time and money.

    Email archiving is not a new concept. For most free email domains (like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) emails are saved on a cloud-based system that can be referenced until a user deletes them. The solutions that we offer, pr extra layers of convenience and protection beyond such a simple service.

    First, the recent glitch in Google’s system proves that emails can only be archived if they exist. If the end user never receives the email due to server error, then the possibility of archiving the information is a moot point. We are not interested with sending and receiving your emails. We simply capture the email content and safely archive it for future use.

    Our email archiving software is designed to store huge amounts of information on our servers, so that your system is not bogged down with the data. This is similar to a service like Gmail only we are able to pull emails from every user in your company. Even though everyone has their separate email accounts, we are able to create a master database of all this information.

    This leads to the final winning solution that our email archiving offers. We can sift through emails very quickly to find information. Should your business face an audit, lawsuit, or simply need to retrieve information that someone thought has been deleted, we are ready and prepared with powerful search tools to help you connect the missing links of information.

    Gmail is a tantalizing option because it’s free. It also has the backing of Google which comes with the assumption of trustworthiness. We’ve now seen that’s not always the case. If you are looking for a secure and personal alternative, please contact us. We can help you discover if Intradyn is the best solution for you.
