Data Retention: Valora’s Proven Approach

Establish, apply and automate record retention schedules from multiple data sources across the enterprise with Valora’s 5-step methodology and AutoClassification technology.

Scan or crawl all data stores for content.

Scan and locate content from all disparate data sources across the entire organization; from emails and embedded attachments to shared drives and cloud storage environments.

Determine the kind, type and context of all content.

Identify files that can be immediately flagged as ROT (Redundant, Obsolete & Trivial data), those that may contain sensitive information (like PII and confidential content) and those files that may fall under time or content parameters for your organization’s retention policy. 

Analyze, then customize your retention schedules.

View reports, preview documents and better understand your data and content against your existing retention policies. Create and implement new retention rules based on content analysis.

Initiate and execute your retention policy across the enterprise.

Automatically classify files by content, source, location, or other attributes and automate rules for handling specific content. Apply custom retention schedules while incorporating other considerations related to retention such as privacy, access, Legal Hold, and content value.

Automate your retention policy processes and procedures.

Constantly monitor and audit data environments to automatically apply appropriate retention rules to all existing, emerging and retiring content to ensure disposition in a timely manner.
