1. Place user on litigation hold
If your company has retention policies to delete documents after a certain time period, you can easily find and freeze the employee’s data. If there’s a lawsuit, you can produce documents as evidence. An administrator can place the desired user account on hold using a simple admin console. This will prevent the data from being purged according to your company retention policy until you're ready.
2. Recover maliciously deleted email and files
This is important for business continuity and potential legal exposure. An administrator can use the undelete feature to recover emails and other files that were recently deleted using the same admin console.
3. Wipe mobile device account
Remotely wipe accounts from any mobile devices, while leaving the former employee’s personal files in tact. With the admin console, you can locate the users’ mobile device and choose to either wipe it, or simply prevent it from syncing.
