  • Leverage the Archiving Platform’s universal search capabilities across all supported content, including email, instant messaging, mobile, and other social platforms

Upgraded support for LinkedIn using the Smarsh Archiving Platform has already rolled out to more than 600 existing financial services customers around the world.
