Businesses are faced with the challenge of meeting a growing number of regulations on email compliance (e.g. HIPAA and FERPA in the United States or GDPR in the European Union), eDiscovery, and other legislation. On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) became effective in the EU. It is a broad-reaching harmonization of data protection laws in the EU and the end goal is standardization as well as a simpler process.

Compliance Features to Support Your Data Governance
MailStore Server enables the complete archiving of all email within a company. For example, email can be archived before being forwarded to employees’ mailboxes – your foundation to guarantee a solid and auditable email archive.
An archived email is identical to the original email in every respect and can, if necessary, be restored from the archive without losing any information.
MailStore Server prevents archived data from being tampered with by generating SHA hash values from email content and by using internal AES-256 encryption.
A cryptographic signature that can be added to exported emails ensures that exported emails remain protected from tampering, even outside of the archive.
By default, users cannot delete emails from the archive unless the administrator has explicitly changed this permission. Sophisticated retention policies that override all user privileges can also be defined.
If the Legal Hold function has been enabled, no emails can be deleted from the archive, regardless of all other possible configurations of user privileges and retention policies.
MailStore Server uses an integrated auditing function to consistently log changes and events, which can be defined by the administrator.
A special auditor user type allows external auditors to access the archive. All actions performed by this user type are always logged.
