Proofpoint ARCHIVE is a SaaS solution that makes it easy for organizations to securely archive email and solve the storage management, legal discovery and regulatory compliance challenges associated with email retention. Proofpoint ARCHIVE delivers the performance, scalability and cost savings of SaaS while providing the highest levels of security for each organization's archived data.

Proofpoint's patented DoubleBlind Encryption™ ensures that customer data is fully protected both in transit and in the cloud, while still providing full search and discovery capabilities.
