PowerPack for Exchange

The following PowerPacks for Exchange can be added for enhanced search and analysis capabilities:

Agent for Advanced Searching: This agent offers the ability to search any combination of attachment text, message subject, message body, and attachment file name(s).

Agent for PST as a Source: Allows you to select any PST file and open it as a source data store that performs all database operations including copying, exporting, and searching. Parent folders are implemented for PST sources.

Agent for Content Analysis: Reduces the time taken to perform complex email searches. Administrators can create their own Content Analysis Stores containing multiple data sources, including legacy backup tapes, rather than searching one source at a time.

Agent for Administrative Services: Critical for compliance with highly regulated organizations. Enables the top level administrator to centrally control permissions within Ontrack PowerControls to mirror your organization's internal IT security policies and control access to mailboxes. This agent also performs centralized activity auditing to track and record all actions taken by a Ontrack PowerControls user.
