Also new is support for Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS), which lets customers use Microsoft Exchange Online with Enterprise Vault in order to combine hosted email with on-premise archived content sources into a central repository, Dye said.
Enterprise Vault 9.0 also now includes Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector for searching unmanaged data sources for e-discovery and internal investigation requirements, as well as integration with NetBackup to allow archived data to be migrated to tape or other media managed by NetBackup.
It also includes Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator for the deduplication of redundant files to cut the time needed to assess data for legal purposes, Dye said.
Enterprise Vault Discovery Accelerator dedupes files but not the search process for those files, Dye said. This is important, as attorneys often charge between $80 and $400 per hour to locate relevant information, much of which is available in duplicate files and emails.
"In the discovery world, companies are very conservative," he said. "They are not at the point where they are comfortable with deduping the search result. So instead of paying an attorney to read the same e-mail 15 times, now they can read it once."
