Globanet Meets Precise Microsoft Specifications for Merge1 Data Ingestion into Office 365 While Continuing to Enhance Merge1 for Microsoft and Other Environments

Globanet™, a leading developer and reseller of data migration, archiving, compliance and eDiscovery solutions, announced today that Globanet Merge1™, the company’s flagship messaging and social media capture platform, delivers data into Microsoft Office 365 to enhance end user eDiscovery experiences.

Microsoft recently unveiled new eDiscovery improvements concerning captured third party data into Office 365 at the 2016 Microsoft Ignite conference. Specifically, Office 365 now has the ability to cite and showcase the many social media, text message, instant message and financial communication data streams ingested from Merge1 into an end user’s eDiscovery results; no longer do non-email electronically stored information (ESI) sources show up as just “Email” in Office 365. This is a boon to Office 365 users who can now leverage Merge1 data sources to preform custom searches on specific data types to better and more effectively meet their eDiscovery obligations. Query language and syntax enhancements have been built into Office 365 to amplify this enhancement.

As noted in a Microsoft Office 365 Blog Post, Merge1 is a dynamic message capture platform that allows Microsoft users to collect various types of non-Microsoft content for archiving, storage, compliance and eDiscovery needs. The product standardizes non-traditional formats of data into one archive or mail solution providing a valuable way to consolidate many forms of non-Microsoft business communication into one application. With Merge1, Microsoft Office 365 users can archive data sources including: Bloomberg, Symphony, Slack, Jabber, Thomson Reuters, BlackBerry, Yammer, Twitter, Facebook, Salesforce Chatter & Jive.

Beyond the above, Microsoft Office 365 users can now archive and search for any message with the latest version of Merge1. Version 6, the newest release of Merge1 empowers Microsoft Office 365 users to capture ‘more than just email’, enabling them to archive a wide variety of popular message types into the Office 365 repository, including Facebook messages and text messages. This release also features support for the Cisco Jabber messaging platform, while offering an enhanced user interface.

Features and Benefits of Merge1 Version 6 include:

**Support of Microsoft Office 365 – Merge1 now captures and archives messages into Microsoft Office 365.

**New User Interface – A new, web-based user interface allows administrators to log in and manage Merge1 from any browser. The new Merge1 interface delivers a streamlined, intuitive and interactive end-user experience; the product’s legacy MC console has been retired. Additionally, the new UI – which is full HTML – includes a dynamic and robust Dashboard which can manage data from a workstation.

**Auditing Feature – Provides administrators a separate database with login, reset and metadata tracking for improved compliance. License connector (for accurate user counts) and auto-updates are included and assist with tracking requirements.

**Upgraded Login Rights – Includes unique login credentials, ability to change accounts and a ‘forgot password’ option for end users. Opt-in site integration is also incorporated.

**x64 Architecture – Helps users take advantage of more available server memory, provides the ability to process larger messages and delivers enhanced product performance. The product now also supports the latest version of Microsoft Windows 2012.

**Support for Cisco Jabber & Facebook – Archives messages sent across the Jabber messaging platform. The product now also captures Facebook messages, posts and content located on Facebook fan pages.

According to Jackie Ervin, CTO of Globanet, “The latest version 6 of Merge1 is consistent with the product’s long tradition of enabling our clients to meet their regulatory compliance, eDiscovery and data management requirements. The product has always been an affordable, user-friendly way to merge all company data into a single database of text-based transaction records. The latest version of Merge1 announcement extends the archiving capabilities of Merge1 to all Microsoft Office 365 users and saves time, storage, management overhead and cost by merging disparate data sources into one centralized archive. Numerous improvements to Merge1 have been recently made to make the product more scalable and protected against latest security concerns."

Merge1 archives messages into industry-leading archiving platforms including Microsoft Office 365 and Veritas Enterprise Vault, on-premise and cloud archives. Merge1 is archive-agnostic and is customizable to archive messages from any messaging platform an organization deploys.

Merge1 connects to and retrieves a wide variety of message types, including Facebook, Bloomberg, Symphony, FactSet, Thomson Reuters Eikon, Slack, BlackBerry, Microsoft Skype for Business, Microsoft Yammer, Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Exchange/Office 365 EWS 3rd Party Targets, Salesforce Chatter, Jive, CipherCloud, Merrill Chat, UBS, BlackBerry, MobileGuard, Cisco Jabber, Twitter, Market Look, Liquidnet, FX Connect, EML Files, Database Content and more.
