Why Do I Need Rackspace Archiving?

Industry regulations require multiple avenues of protection from a simple backup plan to retention of detailed message header information. If your business relies on email for communication, you should know the impact these laws and regulations have on your email:

  • Open Meeting Laws. Intended to promote transparency and open access to government records.
  • Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Gives greater access to government records, updated in 1996 to encompass electronic records
  • Healthcare Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPPA). Wraps stiff penalties around violations of electronic data retention and privacy regulations
  • 21 CFR Part 11. Imposes FDA-mandated policies for electronic records management on pharmaceutical companies
  • SEC 17A-4. Places stiff SEC-enforced rules around retention and access to records related to securities transactions
  • Sarbarnes-Oxley (SOX). Addresses auditing and reporting for corporations to combat corporate accounting fraud
  • Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA). Enacts regulations around data security in the financial sector
  • FRCP. Sets limits around electronically produced and saved documents that are required as part of legal compliance

If not, rest assured – we do. Rackspace Archiving was built to address these and many more regulations that affect how you retain and retrieve email.
