Join Quadrotech CEO Thomas Madsen (aka the PST Eliminator) and Director of Enterprise Migrations, Mike Weaver, for their on-demand webinar: Ticking Time Bombs: Why You Need to Migrate Your PST Files – REGISTER HERE.

IBM’s 2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report suggests the average financial impact of a cybersecurity incident stands at a colossal USD 3.92 million, with over 25,000 records typically affected.

If you’re familiar with PST files, you’ll know how vulnerable they are to attack, as exposed by the infamous Sony hack. Naturally, every organization stores sensitive data, but keeping PSTs on workstations or network shares makes it far too easy for such information to leave your environment.

At Quadrotech, we think of PST files as ticking time bombs, as they’re a huge risk that could potentially explode at any time. As such, we’d like to offer you practical advice on PST migration and how to stay safe, so please join us for this on-demand webinar:

Top tips for PST migration

IT teams are increasingly being tasked to find, centralize and – if not required for eDiscovery – delete PST files. To help you on this journey, Thomas Madsen (aka the PST Eliminator) and I will run through the options you have to eradicate PSTs, while also outlining the risks involved and how to overcome them.

Over the years, we’ve conducted numerous PST migration projects to migrate PST to Office 365 (or On-prem Exchange, or Enterprise Vault) and we have a wealth of knowledge to share with the world.

In our experience, the average size of PST files is around 2GB, so when you multiply this by the number of staff in your organization, you can see how the total size of PST files can easily surpass several terabytes. Accordingly, this will have a huge impact on restore times and storage requirements.

If 2020 is the year you’re finally planning to tackle your PST problem, please watch this lively session, which is packed with pearls of wisdom.

When the stakes are high and regulations such as Rule 37E in the US and GDPR in Europe are so strict, it pays to get on top of your PST migration and deletion before it’s too late.
