Google Apps Vault helps protect organizations of all sizes by enabling them to quickly find and preserve email messages that may be relevant to litigation, thereby reducing investigation costs. Vault also helps manage and preserve business-critical information for continuity, compliance, and regulatory purposes. Last year, the introduction of partial domain licensing allowed Vault customers to save money by buying Vault only for specific users or organizational units.
Today, we're going a step further by offering targeted legal holds, which give customers even more control over the emails they retain. While it's still possible to hold a user's entire mailbox, customers can also target the specific information they need to preserve for a legal hold based on any searchable criteria, including sent date, labels, content or search terms. Targeted legal holds allow Vault customers to preserve fewer emails and focus on the more relevant messages, helping reduce the costs and risks associated with managing and reviewing data.
Google Apps Vault helps thousands of businesses, schools, and governments archive, retain, and manage business-critical information. You can add Vault to an existing Apps account, or purchase it in conjunction with Apps, for $5 per user per month. If you purchased Google Apps online directly from Google, you can purchase Vault from your Apps Admin Console. If you purchased Vault from a reseller partner, please contact them to purchase additional Vault users. And, finally, please contact us if you are a Google Apps for Education or Government customer interested in Vault.
