Are you or your securities firm among those who have jumped with both feet into the world of social media marketing?

A recent industry survey confirms that nearly two-thirds of all asset managers were actively using social media for marketing purposes.  This is consistent with other contemporary survey results, which establish that social media use is on the rise for organizations across the globe.

Despite the rising popularity of social media in the securities industry, retention of social media content continues to haunt securities firms.  Indeed, 63% of surveyed asset managers reported that “...

Symantec Enterprise Vault™ will soon be celebrating its 12th birthday. Through those years, it has provided storage optimization and discovery/compliance capabilities to thousands of customers – a success by many measures. What made this success? There are many answers to this, but most boil down to just one thing - listening to where customers are feeling pain and providing a solution to help deal with this.

Enterprise Vault was originally built to help optimize Microsoft Exchange Server as a content source, and many more have followed since. Providing storage management capabilities to their Exchange administrators, customers were able to greatly reduce the amount of data stored within Exchange to make it an easier application to run, manage, backup and migrate/upgrade.

PST files, a curse in many IT departments, could finally be eradicated - their contents migrated into the archive to prevent data loss and corruption and to remove the risk of...

As some of you are aware, there was a limitation in the Enterprise Vault client where-by when it was used in a mixed bit client environment; specifically Windows 7 64-bit and Outlook 2010/2007 32-bit, the Vault Cache integration with Windows Desktop Search (WDS) did not function. This was due to a limitation in the way that WDS indexed the contents of Vault Cache. Vault Cache itself was unaffected and continued to operate perfectly, this was solely about it being indexed by WDS so that end users could use Window Explorer federated searches to include Vault Cache as a content source.

I am happy to announce that this limitation has been fixed and we have just released a version of the 9.0.2 client which contains this fix for the first time. This client (English only for now) will support all previously available client functionality as well as supporting WDS indexing the contents of Vault Cache in a mixed bit environment. If your end user workstations are running such a...

With the way that things quickly move and change in today’s business world, it’s not surprising that organizations of all shapes and sizes can feel as though they’re running an ultra-marathon at a sprint pace. More often than not, getting ahead in the grueling race to success means being able to make intelligent decisions fast and efficiently, and archiving is one of the critical components of the type of information management strategy that can really enable that kind of decision-making excellence. It can help tackle information growth head on, and make the most relevant and important data fully and easily searchable and available.

With Enterprise Vault 10 now fully available to Symantec customers worldwide, archiving just got smarter and faster. We’ve incorporated some great new features that will help you to better link your technology and policies for effective information management across your IT and Legal departments, and across the business...

Social media has exploded in recent years into a trillion dollar industry. Once considered a fringe marketing tool at best, it went mainstream and left hobbyists in its rearview mirror.

Organizations have realized that social media can be a valuable resource for generating revenue and brand recognition. Wary IT departments once flirted with blocking access. Today, it’s a rare organization that avoids the use of social media in the office. But as employees embrace these tools for personal and business use, IT departments need to make sure related legal and regulatory issues and security risks are being addressed in the same manner as email, IM and other communications tools in the office.

In order to assess the effects of social media on enterprises, Symantec recently conducted a flash poll of 1225 enterprises, representing 33 countries. The results reveal that employees are actively engaged in using social media tools. Did I give that away earlier? With these...

In this week’s post, I’d like to address a few important questions pertaining to the hardware specifications required by Enterprise Vault 10, and offer up some info on how it can help with server migrations.

What OS and hardware should I use for Enterprise Vault 10?

I’ve been asked a few times what the minimum OS and hardware specification should be for an EV 10 server. The OS is simple, EV 10 requires at least Windows Server 2008 R2. When it comes to hardware we’ve found that EV10 will continue to provide better performance the more CPU cores and memory you provide (which is great news!)

The minimum for EV 10 is a server with 4 CPU cores running at least 2.8GHz with 8GB RAM, we’re recommending a server with 8 CPU cores running at least 2.8GHz with 16GB RAM.

Does it matter what form factor the CPU cores are packaged? Nope, dual quad core, quad dual core or a single eight core CPU would be fine! The more...

Some of you might already have heard of our Techcenter offering, it's been around for a few years now and it's a great resource for both new and seasoned Enterprise Vault admins. We used to offer some free modules but recently all the modules have been made available and are ready for you to go download and watch. Obviously these are all V8 & V9 focused but in the fullness of time there will be V10 modules but either way why not go and check these out because you never know you might be able to learn something new & wonderful :)

Here's the full URL

I've made a shorter URL which is easier to remember

Happy eLearning

The brand new 64-bit indexing engine featured in upcoming Enterprise Vault 10 offers up a whole new realm of performance, where customers can take advantage of improved scalability and flexible configuration options. With EV 10, both scale-up (more memory) and scale-out (additional hardware) architectures can be considered. Though once upgraded, all newly-archived content will be stored in 64-bit index volumes, existing 32-Bit Index volumes can still be queried seamlessly to pose no major change for end-users. Customers need not worry about any forced upgrades; they can simply continue to access their 32-bit indexed data.

EV 10 also provides an enhanced set of index management tools, which help guide upgrades to 64-bit indexes while maintaining health in normal operation.

We’ve worked hard to maintain all of the great features  built into our 32-Bit indexing framework while delivering the additional benefits a 64-Bit architecture can...
