EMC SourceOne – Email

An Archiving, eDiscovery and Compliance Solution Starting with Email

The EMC SourceOne Family

SourceOne provides an integrated approach to information governance. And it starts by putting archiving at the foundation and then adding compliance and eDiscovery capabilities.
EMC SourceOne: Integrated information governance for multiple content types

So those are the three products and to start, they are focused on primarily on email:

  • EMC SourceOne Email Management: Email and instant messaging archiving
  • EMC SourceOne Discovery Manager: Discovery and Legal Hold for Email Management Archives
  • EMC SourceOne Discovery Collector: Indexing appliance to automate collection throughout the enterprise for everything else

Why the initial focus on email?  Today it’s a repository of record for many and contains a huge volume of data. And despite what many may want, it ain’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

Today’s systems need to recognize this and they need to be able to find information inside email quickly, producing it in a forensically sound way.

SourceOne Email Management

The Email Management solution will archive email from MS Exchange, Lotus Notes, SMTP and instant messages. The solution is built to run on a single server, but can be separated out during peak periods. It has full international support and has a localized interface in seven different languages out of the box.

This solution is extensible with an API expected to come later to support third party customizations.

EMC SourceOne Email Management console is used to configure and manage all aspects of the messaging archive, utilizing Microsoft’s intuitive MMC technology. 

Designed with usability in mind, there is simple centralized administration and a web-based search interface for administrators.

EMC SourceOne Email Management provides a web-based search interface, allowing authenticated user search and access to their archived e-mail in multiple languages. Searches can be performed from desktops, laptops and hand-held devices and do not require a mail client to be installed. 

In addition you can access content using a Universal URL through just about any medium including mobile devices (Blackberry and iPhone), Outlook and Notes Client and Web Access and new clients like Microsoft Entourage.
