Reflexion Archiving, Discovery and Recovery (RADAR) is a hosted email archiving service that operates in conjunction with your existing email infrastructure to ensure the protection, preservation and continuous operation of email communication for your business while providing on-demand email access for users anytime, anywhere.
Today, email is the core business communication channel. Since its inception, email has evolved from a simple intra-office messaging tool to the information and communication backbone of companies of all sizes.
As reliance on email grows, so does the need to ensure its operation as a communication tool and to preserve the information it contains. Excessive data loads, the constant pounding of spam and viruses, unplanned service interruptions, and ad-hoc needs to find pertinent information within the flood of content presents constant challenges for business owners.
RADAR solves these problems. It can be deployed for any size business to ensure that electronic communication is automatically preserved for intelligent discovery, rapid recovery and continuous access from any location.
How RADAR Works
All incoming, outgoing and internal email is automatically routed through the RADAR gateway from Reflexion Total Control.
All email and attachments are filtered for spam and viruses, which are eliminated, then indexed for search and retrieval (discovery), and then encrypted in the active archive for secure, long-term retention.
Using RADAR’s intuitive web interface, users are able to instantly search, identify and retrieve email and attachments, recovering them directly to their desktops.
The structure of email, its constant use by staff and its dual purpose as a communications tool and information repository demand that its retention be managed more dynamically than regular files and folders. This is accomplished through active archiving.
RADAR’s active archiving automatically stores a copy of all incoming, outgoing and internal email in a secure, encrypted repository indefinitely.
eDiscovery refers to the process of finding email in the active archive. RADAR provides a unique set of eDiscovery tools that empower users to perform multiple levels of live search for any email or attachment within the archive.
RADAR’s proprietary DeepLink™ discovery engine enables users to easily locate related emails and attachments from their mailbox archives. Authorized users are permitted to search across the enterprise.
Using RADAR’s online user interface, users can instantly recover any email or attachment from the active archive into their desktop inbox without assistance from IT.
RADAR’s unique “click and pick” data-packaging tools allow the recovery of email and attachments to be fully customized by the user. In the event of a catastrophic failure, a full mailbox restore is available to users for complete disaster recovery.
As a hosted cloud service, RADAR provides continuous on-demand access to email from any location. In the event of any internal network or server outages, users can access the secure RADAR servers via any browser or email client and continue communication via email without any downtime, mail queuing or sender “bounce-back” messages.
In addition to complete mobility and 24×7 email accessibility, RADAR enables email users to access ALL messages and attachments within the active archive — not just the email residing on the in-house mail server. Employees are not constrained by local configuration requirements or network access availability, as they are simply sending and receiving email securely within RADAR via an encrypted SSL internet connection.
As a hosted service, RADAR operates transparently “in the cloud,” automatically saving incoming, outgoing and internal email. Importantly, this does not require any additional hardware, client-side software or IT support. Email availability becomes like electricity availability: it’s just there. But it’s even better because if your local power goes out, you can still reach your email from another location.
Reflexion’s servers are located in class-A datacenters that leverage the most modern storage software and infrastructure to provide our customers with superior email availability and redundancy.
