Preservation & Management
A unified message archiving solution. Global Relay Archive
is a Software-as-a-Service solution that provides secure
off-site archiving and long-term storage for virtually every message
type used in business and finance. It creates a permanent, tamperproof
copy of all incoming, internal and outgoing electronic messages.
Intuitive web-based search and retrieval features give users rapid
access to current and historical message records, even if the original
has been deleted. As well, the system's compliance functionality
provides powerful real-time monitoring and audit tools for regulatory
compliance, eDiscovery and supervision.
Ideal for firms in regulated industries. Global Relay Archive is
specifically engineered to assist firms in meeting the stringent legal
and regulatory requirements for electronic recordkeeping, such as SEC
Rule 17a-4, NASD Conduct Rule 3110 and NYSE Rule 440, as well as those
mandated for any Investment Advisors and Hedge Funds in the firm under
SEC Rule 204-2. Global Relay also provides customers with access to the
expertise of its in-house Legal Team, to help companies establish best
practices for compliant messaging.
In addition to meeting compliance requirements, regulated firms
will also benefit by facilitating efficient responses to audits and
evidentiary requests, as well as by diminishing the likelihood of
securities violations, SEC enforcement actions and other liabilities
associated with inadequate, lost or deleted records. Simple, secure and
powerful, Global Relay Archive works in the background to create a
perfect record of "who said what when".
Archive access for every business role. Global Relay Archive
provides tools to accommodate the needs of every
business role within an organization via an intuitive user interface.

themselves in seconds, boosting productivity and reducing IT support

meet regulatory requirements for the supervision of employee
communications. Compliance personnel have access to an extensive suite

their reports' communications and identifies any messages that may

users' messages or firm-wide access. Granular administrator controls
allow firms to set up access rights that mirror the reporting structures
in their organizations.
Tools to access the archive anytime, anywhere.
In addition to the standard web-based user interface, mobile access to archived messages is available through Global Relay Search for BlackBerry, iPhone and Outlook. These innovative applications equip users with the same powerful search capabilities that can be accessed via web browser.
