Our solution for e-mail archiving enables you to store e-mails, mail data and attachments in a legally compliant, audit-proof and GDPR-compliant long-term manner using state-of-the-art technologies such as web interfaces and a blockchain-like technology to ensure data integrity.
Deduplication avoids data redundancies within the storage and saves storage space. A function for selective e-mail archiving allows to separate private from business communication in compliance with GDPR. Our e-mail archiving software is entirely independent from any mail server. The access logging enables a professional and complete auditing as well as a blockchain-based assurance of data integrity, for a revision-proof and unchangeable storage.
The modern and intuitive web interface of our e-mail archiving solution makes working with it enjoyable. The integrated search function allows you to seek through all mail data as well as the entire archiving period. The evaluation of communication channels and data flows is simple.
Since January 1st 2017, companies have been obliged to comply with the archiving requirements according to GoBD, § 257 HGB and § 147 AO and to archive digital documents in the same way as previously paper-based documents. E-mails, mail data and attachments must always be archived accordingly if they
- conclude or
a business transaction.
Depending on the type and case, the archiving obligation extends for up to 30 years. Violations can have civil and criminal law consequences for the management. Since 2018 also the GDPR must be considered and its regulations must be obeyed.
In addition to legal requirements, a company can also draw conclusions about the communication structure in the company from the structured storage of its e-mail communication. We support you in this.
Archiving of all e-mails
All incoming and outgoing e-mails, including metadata and attachments, are archived in the PASS E-Mail Archive.
Legally compliant archiving
Storage in accordance with legal requirements from GoBD, HGB, AO and support of GDPR-compliant e-mail archiving, e.g. through the privacy function. This selective archiving option is used to separate private and business e-mails.
Mail server/OS independence
By tapping the e-mails directly at the POP3 or SMTP adapter, complete independence from a specific mail system (e.g. Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, etc.) is achieved. The e-mail archive operates on both Windows and Linux and requires no additional database.
Modern web interface
Access takes place via an intuitive web interface. Various search and filter options are available (for the entire database and archiving period) as well as future evaluation and reporting options.
A function based on the latest blockchain technology to ensure data integrity. Once saved, data cannot be changed and is therefore archived in an audit-proof manner.
Saving of storage space
By deduplicating e-mails and attachments, identical objects are only stored once and then referenced. The latter is the case, for example, with several recipients or identical attachments that are frequently sent company-wide.
