Editor’s note 2/19/2016:
The post was updated to reflect that archiving third-party data in Office 365 is now generally available.
When it comes to ensuring data is stored and protected in accordance with compliance standards, organizations can no longer afford to think about email alone. They must now account for new communications mediums including social media, instant messaging and other collaboration platforms. Governance and regulatory policies have already been updated to reflect the growing influence of these new mediums.
Today we are pleased to announce that archiving third-party data in Office 365 is now available. Announced last year, the third-party archiving capability extends the rich, unlimited archiving capabilities we already provide for email, documents in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business meetings and conversations.
The service is available worldwide to all Office 365 commercial customers. To participate, you simply need to reach out to one of our partners listed below, indicating that you would like Office 365 to be your archiving destination for all third-party data.
