Enterprise Vault’s Exchange archiving agent uses the version of MAPI supplied with Outlook to communicate with Microsoft Exchange. Enterprise Vault currently supports Outlook 2007 only due to performance and reliability issues encountered with Outlook 2010. Since the introduction of Outlook 2013, Symantec and Microsoft have been working to certify a joint solution, but unfortunately issues were again uncovered. The good news is both companies understand the issues and are working on delivering a solution. The changes in Enterprise Vault to support Outlook 2013 are planned* to be delivered as part of Enterprise Vault 11.0.1 which is on schedule* to be available in CYQ4 2014. The changes are not planned to be made available with any previous version of Enterprise Vault so customers who need to replace Outlook 2007 on an Enterprise Vault server should prepare to upgrade to Enterprise Vault 11.0.1 to take advantage of the new capability.

Remember to check-out all the other great...

Today (10th April 2014) the world woke-up to the news that OpenSSL has a serious security vulnerability, with a catchy name "Heartbleed"

I'm sure you'd like to know Symantec's official view on the Enterprise Vault family of products.

You can read our offical response here:

To put your mind at rest, all currently released versions are unaffected by this vulnerability.

I just wanted to give you an update on Enterprise Vault's Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS) compatibility. We've just updated the Enterprise Vault Compatibility Charts To indicate that EV 10.0.1 and above along with the existing EV 9.0.3 and above versions of the product are FIPS compatible.

What does this mean?

Any customer that requires a FIPS compatible version of EV can now upgrade to EV 10.0.1 or above (we'd always recommend the latest version available); if you're not aware of all the great EV 10 features, take a look at our why upgrade guide:

Sounds strange doesn't it? Exchange Journaling, the process used by thousands of Exchange customers all over the world to ensure that have a defensible and reliable eDiscovery position, has been called into question by... Microsoft!

So why would Microsoft state that Journaling is insecure?

Microsoft consider that any data that leaves Exchange is inherently insecure as it no longer resides in the Exchange store. On this basis, that’s any data not in the store: mailboxes in Outlook cached mode, messages viewed on many common mobile devices, OWA 2013 when it caches messages, PST files (yes we all know about PST's). The reality is that "insecure" really boils down to your security practices and perimeters, and your comfort with data extending beyond it.

The other side to this is handling the volumes of messages generated as a result of enabling Exchange Journaling; it can be substantial. Enterprise Vault has customers generating in excess...

by Greg Muscarella, Senior Director, Product Management

Once again Gartner has named Symantec as a leader in the Enterprise Information Archiving magic quadrant.  We’ve continued to invest significantly in this market and it is gratifying to see the recognition for the continued effort we put into archiving both in the cloud and on premises with our Enterprise and Enterprise Vault products. Symantec has now been rated a leader 9 years in a row.

This year marks a transition in a couple of regards.  We are seeing an acceleration of customers looking for the convenience and simplicity of SaaS based archiving solution. The caveat being that...

We initially released V10 last August and have seen steady demand from customers who have downloaded and upgraded in the previous six months. However, with this first service pack now available we expect more of our customers to start planning their upgrades to take advantage of the major improvements in V10 but also the various incremental changes & fixes that have been rolled up into EV10.0.1.

So let’s just review some of the benefits of upgrading to V10.0.1
