Archiving is one of the many responsibilities of an organization. It is important in information management and can give the company control over data issues. Aside from its significance in protecting the company against legal actions, archiving is also a requirement that companies should do to comply with regulations and industry standards.
But archiving has come such a long way. Now that industries have gone digital, archiving now also covers saving the digital data from various electronic sources. This means that the organization does not only have to keep their physical records but also those in electronic form.
One primary source of e-data today is mobile devices. Most entrepreneurs and employees use a single device for both work and personal matters. Some common applications where company information is usually exchanged through mobile phones are emails, Telegram, WhatsApp, WeChat, and Signal.
To capture and save information transferred via these channels, companies need mobile archiver tools. Examples of these tools include Telegram archiving, WhatsApp recording, and AT&T SMS archiving solutions.
To identify whether a mobile archiver solution is a cost-effective choice, it has to cover at least the channels the organization is using. For example, it would not be practical to choose an application that has wide coverage when the company only needs a Telegram call recording or WeChat archiver tool.
Another important quality is its ability to ensure compliance with data protection regulations. Part of this is that the program can provide security against cyber attacks and misuse. The messages must be securely and reliably retained within the service provider’s servers or in a chosen data storage vendor.
