Symantec has added automatic email archiving classification, social media storage and new data discovery tools to its latest version of Enterprise Vault.
The archiving system can now examine the metadata of Microsoft Exchange content such as emails, and classify their priority for storage, shifting lower priority data to less costly sysytems.
Enterprise Vault will now also collect social media content via linkups with Actiance, CommonDesk, Globanet, Hanzo and Socialware.
Symantec said that 82 per cent of companies polled in a recent survey are examining social media data retention as a corporate policy, but less than a quarter had actually implemented such a system.
"We've increased the scale and performance of Enterprise Vault so our customers can effectively archive and discover the millions of records employees are creating by email, social media, SharePoint and file systems," said Brian Dye, vice president of product management at Symantec.
"Enterprise Vault 10 can significantly reduce risks, especially for organisations in highly litigious or regulated industries, without inhibiting the business and productivity benefits of social media and collaboration tools."
Other new features include improved data deduplication, and the ability to search, examine, classify and store files even while encrypted.
Part of the new data discovery tools are the result of Symantec's purchase of Clearwell Systems in May. The new code allows the searching and analysis of data for internal audits, legal e-discovery and corporate governance.
