vault300x225GSuite Vault, an add-on service, lets you retain, archive, search, and export your organization’s email for eDiscovery and compliance needs. Vault is entirely web-based, so there’s no need to install or maintain software. Vault is included with GSuite Unlimited, or you can purchase Vault licenses for an additional monthly fee per user. GSuite Vault offers the following eDiscovery services:

  • Email and chat archiving—Set retention rules to control how long email messages and on-the-record chats will be retained before they are removed from user mailboxes and deleted from Google systems.
  • Legal holds—Place legal holds on users to indefinitely preserve all of their emails and on-the-record chats in order to meet legal or other retention obligations. You can place legal holds on all content in a user’s account, or target specific content based on dates and terms.
  • Drive file search—Search your domain’s Google Drive accounts by user account, organizational unit, date, or keyword. Search results include Google file types as well as non-Google file types such as PDF, DOCX, and JPG.
  • Email search—Search your domain’s email and on-the-record chats by user account, date, or keyword. Vault supports Boolean, Gmail-specific, and wildcard operator searches.
  • Export—Export specific email, on-the-record chats, and files from Drive to standard formats for additional processing and review.
  • Audit reports—Use Vault audit reports to learn about actions users have taken during a specified period of time.
  • Purchase Google Vault. You will need to have a GSuite account. The GSuite Unlimited includes Vault. Contact us for more info.
