Buried in big data? Why its time to evolve your archiving solution [Symantec]

Are you ready for the data explosion?

Symantec Enterprise Vault offers more control and protection of intellectual property and corporate assets.

Over the last four years alone, the digital universe has expanded by over 400% and is now somewhere around 1 zettabyte (1 trillion gigabytes – yes, trillion) in size.
