QUADROtech's PST FlightDeck 4.0 accelerates email migration to platforms such as Office 365.

QUADROtech’s latest PST FlightDeck release ensures the highest success rate for organizations struggling with elimination of local Outlook and Exchange Client mailboxes. Such files – known as PSTs – are notorious for causing security and compliance problems. PST FlightDeck 4.0 introduces innovative features to discover and migrate PST files more rapidly and safely to new platforms.

QUADROtech’s data migration specialists have helped hundreds of corporations worldwide migrate off PSTs since 2005. PST FlightDeck 4.0’s major enhancements include load balancing to speed up transfer from disparate locations without compromising network operability for business applications, automatic provision for migrating the mailboxes of people who have left the business, and new helpdesk functionality.     

PSTs contain critical information but, because they reside on individual users’ computers, they are impossible to manage centrally. The number of organisations attempting to migrate off PSTs is increasing rapidly, particularly in the wake of last year’s Sony hack in which PSTs were stolen. Legal and compliance officers are driving reduction in PST use alongside IT departments that are championing the efficiency benefits of migration.

PST FlightDeck seeks out PST files wherever they are in the enterprise, and uses sophisticated logic to automate the tasks associated with migrating in a legally defensible way. Its unique six-factor authentication goes further than comparable tools to automatically reconcile mailbox accounts against the correct owners, and QUADROtech’s Advanced Ingestion Protocol minimises the amount of data that needs to be transferred.

“Organizations can be very complex, with different locations, languages, user policies and so on,” says PST FlightDeck product head Thomas Madsen. “With each iteration of the product we address real scenarios we’ve encountered. PST migration isn’t just a technical issue; you’ve got to ensure critical data remains accessible and discoverable throughout the process. The challenge is to migrate quickly and efficiently without compromising on regulatory requirements. PST FlightDeck significantly reduces the risks involved in these projects compared with competitive products.”

Madsen adds: “While PST FlightDeck aims to reduce the hands-on effort of migration, there are still times when manual intervention is required. If a file doesn’t meet minimum thresholds it’s blocked from ingestion until a specialist has reviewed it. But for the bulk of exceptions the tool has the intelligence to work out what to do. Its fully scalable architecture is highly optimized for Office 365 migrations as well as Exchange and Enterprise Vault projects.”
