Outlook PST files are poorly protected, susceptible to data leakage and easily corrupted. You can’t centralize or manage them, so tracking how many exist across the organization is challenging. They hinder accurate eDiscovery and compromise data protection compliance, so organizations are now forced to perform a PST migration to safeguard the data.
Using our intelligent software, you can audit your entire PST footprint to identify ownership, remove passwords, restore corrupt files, highlight redundant files and migrate PST to Office 365 or on-premises Exchange. Once complete, retention and data management policies can be applied – ensuring compliance, simplifying eDiscovery, protecting email data and reducing management costs.
The solution can be run in a centralized or hub-and-spoke model, including hosting entirely Microsoft Azure. Whether migrating PST to O365 or other targets. the process can be executed with granular control, with filtering and de-duplicating options.
Microsoft's network upload service is fine for organizations with fewer than 500 users, but large enterprises require an advanced solution capable of automation and centralized server processing to ensure full PST discovery and happy users. With over a decade's experience, our PST file migration team is here to help. The optional Apple agent can also be deployed to import OLM files from Mac computers.
Once source data is present in the target, original files are deleted and broken links removed from the Outlook profile. A policy is also enforced to prevent the creation of new PSTs, ensuring the environment remains clean post-migration.
Azure hosting and the ability to migrate content from OneDrive for Business allows you to centralize PST data belonging to remote/hybrid workers. When configured with VPN split tunneling, migration traffic automatically flows to the service, ensuring speed is maintained without impacting the corporate VPN.
PST Flight Deck offers an optional Apple agent to address OLM and PST files on Apple computers. This enables you to support both Apple and Windows users together, centralizing all email data as part of the same project. This component is delivered exclusively by Quest’s Professional Services team.
PST Flight Deck will process files according to the ownership details, but rather than just accept that these details are correct it has a built-in 8-factor mechanism to verify file ownership.
If discrepancies are found, for example if more than one owner
is detected, PST Flight Deck will automatically notify operators who can verify
ownership and assign the correct owner prior to ingestion.
