Integro culls PST contents for leading US loan servicing company
In early 2013, industry recognized product and services company, Integro, was approached by a leading US loan company to address its mounting PST problem.
Driven by a pressing legal requirement, the company had an urgent need to collect all PSTs across the network and migrate them to a centralized repository so they could perform eDiscovery on the contents.
At first glance, the company believed it had around 7,000 PST files to deal with. However, these were estimates and did not take into consideration all the duplicate files that existed as a consequence of backups. Furthermore, not all locations within the company’s network had been properly scanned for PSTs.
Integro, using TransVault’s PST management tool, Insight, actually discovered their client had almost 10,000 PSTs in total….
With this amount of data to be pulled back across its network for analysis, the company potentially faced what could be an extremely lengthy and disruptive investigation period.
Using TransVault Insight, Integro was able to start culling the data set before migration, thereby minimizing what needed to be dealt with.
TransVault Insight has the unique ability to anaylze the actual contents of PST files, down to individual emails contained within. This gives organizations greater choice over how to deal with PSTs: manage in-place, migrate all, migrate only those that fit criteria or delete in-place.
