Actiance, the leader in communications compliance, archiving and analytics, has announced customers can now host Actiance Vantage on Microsoft Azure. By running on Azure, Actiance’s customers will be able to remain compliant as they move on-premises enterprise data and applications to the Azure cloud platform and Microsoft Office 365 across Skype for Business, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft One Drive for Business, and Active Directory.
“As customers move to the cloud, they need all the security and compliance features Vantage, a certified Skype for Business solution, provides,” said Barry Ruditsky, SVP Business Development, Actiance. “The availability of Actiance Vantage on Microsoft Azure helps accelerate cloud initiatives for our joint customers, and gives them a simplified way to ensure compliant communications across the Microsoft cloud.”
“The ability to host Vantage on Azure is a strong step forward for Actiance, its customers and Microsoft,” said Michael Osterman, Principal Analyst, Osterman Research. “The growth of Azure and its importance in the Microsoft ecosystem makes Vantage that much more useful and easier to justify.”
Actiance Vantage gives customers granular policies to enable real-time control over 80 communications channels and address the most rigorous compliance requirements. Enterprises investing in the Microsoft cloud will benefit from:
The ability to meet compliance mandates across communications channels: Enterprises can meet compliance mandates as they move to the cloud with compliance capabilities for Office 365. These capabilities can also be centrally applied along with non-Microsoft communications channels with the unified management of the Actiance platform.
Private cloud deployments for increased control of data: Private cloud deployments of the Actiance platform enable a secure, flexible and low-cost way to capture and take full control of enterprise data. With Vantage on Azure, Actiance customers now have the option to either maintain their on-premises Vantage implementation or deploy on the Azure cloud platform.
“The cloud is a strategic priority in every organization today and customers need a secure way to migrate their enterprise applications,” said Ryan McGee, Director, Security Product Marketing, Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft Azure provides the global scale and security enterprise customers need, enhanced by Actiance’s expertise in managing compliance.”
