Email is efficient—but it exposes your company to risks

Large volumes of sensitive information are exchanged internally and externally through business email every day, exposing companies to risks like fines, penalties, bad publicity and litigation related to email correspondence.

Regulation exists to store crucial email evidence

Many industries require businesses to take a proactive approach to storing and monitoring email in case of litigation, employee disputes, or customer complaints.

To mitigate risk and stay in compliance, you need a way to efficiently archive and search email

  • I have been a chief compliance officer for numerous years in the securities industry. We utilized MessageWatcher at my previous firm for years. When I left and went to my current firm we did not hesitate to sign back up with MessageWatcher to be our communications with the public supervisory and retention system for email transmissions, websites etc. I have found it very easy to navigate and very user friendly to conduct searches for specific regulatory inquiries from FINRA, the SEC and the States. And lastly, the customer service that you get from MessageWatcher is top-notch.
