mycompanyarchive - Secure Archiving and GDPR Compliance, Hand in Hand

TECH-ARROW has released a brand new version of its next-generation archiving software, mycompanyarchive. There are many new features, further innovating the mycompanyarchive email, file, and SharePoint archiving solution

TECH-ARROW guides companies through the whole process of cloud adaption, from mapping the on-premises infrastructure through to migration and securing the new cloud environment. With the increase in corporate and government compliance requirements, mycompanyarchive offers a comprehensive portfolio of products for secure content archiving and management. TECH-ARROW gives enterprises a robust, powerful information archiving solution that supports litigation and compliance needs, complementing Microsoft Exchange and Office 365 with more advanced features, such as enhanced e-discovery functions.

“With mycompanyarchive you can create a common, safe archive for Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, file servers, workstations, and more. Your company will make a big step towards meeting regulatory requirements (GDPR, SEC 17a-4, SOX, HIPAA, etc.) and corporate policies by securing data. Built in a high-tech Azure environment, using blob stores, secure Azure databases and services, mycompanyarchive provides access to your archived content 99,99% of the time, even on mobile devices,” said András Pálffy, COO of TECH-ARROW.

mycompanyarchive is built to suit the needs of companies of any size, from 5 employees to 50,000. Small and medium-sized businesses can leverage the cloud archive services of mycompanyarchive, which include Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Azure SQL Database, and superb computing power of interconnected virtual machines, and they don’t need to manage their own cloud IT architecture to do so. Enterprises can install the new-generation archive solutions of TECH-ARROW in their own cloud or on-premises IT. Hybrid infrastructures are supported, too.

The new GDPR feature of mycompanyarchive is going to help companies reach GDPR compliance in a simple and effective manner. mycompanyarchive enables companies to full-text index all relevant data repositories, and to have a federated full-text search across company data. This gives you the power to manage data in your organization, including Microsoft Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, and file servers, user workstations CRM, ECM systems, and various other applications. Finding relevant information in all internally used systems quickly becomes an easy thing to do. End-user tools contentWEB, officeGATE, and contentACCESS Mobile enable you to browse and search all company data anytime and anywhere. The new GDPR feature, combined with secure archiving, provides an answer to many challenges that companies will face when GDPR becomes enforceable on 25th May 2018.

“Today, managing and securing organizational data is an essential activity for every business,” said Parri Munsell, Director, Microsoft 365 Partner Marketing. “We’re excited to see partners like TECH-ARROW using Microsoft solutions to help customers comply with the GDPR and other regulatory requirements.”

How do you migrate your legacy data to Office 365 and mycompanyarchive? TECH-ARROW’s contentGATE provides you a scalable, secure, and compliant migration. Companies running a legacy email archiving software due to technical reasons (and other factors such as business compliance) need not worry again about the loss of data, data inconsistency, broken chain of custody, etc. These can now be prevented with the use of contentGATE. In addition, the migration software provided by TECH-ARROW is also more enhanced due to its support for several other legacy systems, like mail servers, DMSs, and CRMs. TECH-ARROW provides services with optimum speed that enable a business to experience no downtime during the data migration process.

Australia says no further Facebook, Google amendments as final vote nears

Australia says no further Facebook, Google amendments as final vote nears 1

By Colin Packham

CANBERRA (Reuters) – Australia will not alter legislation that would make Facebook and Alphabet Inc’s Google pay news outlets for content, a senior lawmaker said on Monday, as Canberra neared a final vote on whether to pass the bill into law.

Australia and the tech giants have been in a stand-off over the legislation widely seen as setting a global precedent.

Other countries including Canada and Britain have already expressed interest in taking some sort of similar action.

Facebook has protested the laws. Last week it blocked all news content and several state government and emergency department accounts, in a jolt to the global news industry, which has already seen its business model upended by the titans of the technological revolution.

Talks between Australia and Facebook over the weekend yielded no breakthrough.

As Australia’s senate began debating the legislation, the country’s most senior lawmaker in the upper house said there would be no further amendments.

“The bill as it stands … meets the right balance,” Simon Birmingham, Australia’s Minister for Finance, told Australian Broadcasting Corp Radio.

The bill in its present form ensures “Australian-generated news content by Australian-generated news organisations can and should be paid for and done so in a fair and legitimate way”.

The laws would give the government the right to appoint an arbitrator to set content licencing fees if private negotiations fail.

While both Google and Facebook have campaigned against the laws, Google last week inked deals with top Australian outlets, including a global deal with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

“There’s no reason Facebook can’t do and achieve what Google already has,” Birmingham added.

A Facebook representative declined to comment on Monday on the legislation, which passed the lower house last week and has majority support in the Senate.

A final vote after the so-called third reading of the bill is expected on Tuesday.

Lobby group DIGI, which represents Facebook, Google and other online platforms like Twitter Inc, meanwhile said on Monday that its members had agreed to adopt an industry-wide code of practice to reduce the spread of misinformation online.

Under the voluntary code, they commit to identifying and stopping unidentified accounts, or “bots”, disseminating content; informing users of the origins of content; and publishing an annual transparency report, among other measures.

GSK and Sanofi start with new COVID-19 vaccine study after setback

GSK and Sanofi start with new COVID-19 vaccine study after setback 2

By Pushkala Aripaka and Matthias Blamont

(Reuters) – GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi on Monday said they had started a new clinical trial of their protein-based COVID-19 vaccine candidate, reviving their efforts against the pandemic after a setback in December delayed the shot’s launch.

The British and French drugmakers aim to reach final testing in the second quarter, and if the results are conclusive, hope to see the vaccine approved by the fourth quarter after having initially targeted the first half of this year.

In December, the two groups stunned investors when they said their vaccine would be delayed towards the end of 2021 after clinical trials showed an insufficient immune response in older people.

Disappointing results were probably caused by an inadequate concentration of the antigen used in the vaccine, Sanofi and GSK said, adding that Sanofi has also started work against new coronavirus variants to help plan their next steps.

Global coronavirus infections have exceeded 110 million as highly transmissible variants of the virus are prompting vaccine developers and governments to tweak their testing and immunisation strategies.

GSK and Sanofi’s vaccine candidate uses the same recombinant protein-based technology as one of Sanofi’s seasonal influenza vaccines. It will be coupled with an adjuvant, a substance that acts as a booster to the shot, made by GSK.

“Over the past few weeks, our teams have worked to refine the antigen formulation of our recombinant-protein vaccine,” Thomas Triomphe, executive vice president and head of Sanofi Pasteur, said in a statement.

The new mid-stage trial will evaluate the safety, tolerability and immune response of the vaccine in 720 healthy adults across the United States, Honduras and Panama and test two injections given 21 days apart.

Sanofi and GSK have secured deals to supply their vaccine to the European Union, Britain, Canada and the United States. It also plans to provide shots to the World Health Organization’s COVAX programme.

To appease critics after the delay, Sanofi said earlier this year it had agreed to fill and pack millions of doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine from July.

Sanofi is also working with Translate Bio on another COVID-19 vaccine candidate based on mRNA technology.

Don’t ignore “lockdown fatigue”, UK watchdog tells finance bosses

Don't ignore "lockdown fatigue", UK watchdog tells finance bosses 3

By Huw Jones

LONDON (Reuters) – Staff at financial firms in Britain are suffering from “lockdown fatigue” and their bosses are not always making sure all employees can speak up freely about their problems, the Financial Conduct Authority said on Monday.

Many staff at financial companies have been working from home since Britain went into its first lockdown in March last year to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

One year on, the challenges have evolved from adapting to working remotely to dealing with mental health issues, said David Blunt, the FCA’s head of conduct specialists.

“During this third lockdown, there has been a greater impact on mental well-being, with many people struggling with job security, caring responsibilities, home schooling, bereavements and lockdown fatigue.”

Bosses should continually revisit how they lead remote teams, he said.

“The impact of COVID-19 is creating a huge workload for those considered to be high performers, while the remote environment potentially makes it much more challenging for those who were previously considered low performers to change that perception,” Blunt told a City & Financial online event.

Companies should consider “psychological safety” or ensuring that all employees feel confident about speaking out and challenging opinions.

“We’ve heard varying reports of how successful this has been,” Blunt said.

Pressures in the financial sector were highlighted this month when accountants KPMG said its UK chairman Bill Michael had stepped aside during a probe into comments he made to staff.

The Financial Times said Michael, who later apologised for his comments, had told staff to “stop moaning” about the impact of the pandemic on their work lives.

Blunt was speaking as the FCA next month completes the full rollout of rules that force senior managers at financial firms to be personally accountable for their decisions to improve conduct standards.

There have only been a “modest” number of breaches reported to regulators so far as firms worry about being “tainted” but more cases will become public as sanctions are revealed, Blunt said.

“Regulators won’t be impressed by lowballing the figures.”
