Global Relay – Helping organizations manage and control their communications data

Global Relay – Helping organizations manage and control their communications data

Information governance has been evolving for some time from simple records and document management to a broader, business outcome-centered approach that serves every constituent in the enterprise. Information governance is no longer solely about compliance; it has expanded to recognize the inherent value of information, the need for security, and the desire to support agility during organizational change and growth. Information Governance is more important than ever because the majority of large enterprises have a data problem. While just about every large company claims to be “data-driven” and focused on leveraging new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, the evidence suggests that few are backing up this talk with real action. In fact, it can be argued that data is actually more of a liability than an asset in many organizations.

Global Relay is a leading provider of information governance and compliant electronic communications archiving, messaging, supervision, information governance, and eDiscovery. The company’s 20,000+ customers in 90 countries include highly regulated organizations and other corporate firms, including financial services, insurance, technology, energy (oil and gas), legal, government, and healthcare.  Global Relay preserves more than 60 data types within a unified, highly-secure cloud repository. Data types include: email, collaboration platforms (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Zoom), Instant Messaging, Bloomberg®, Refinitiv, social media, text messaging, voice, and trade data.
