Email retention just got harder thanks to functionality introduced by Google for personal Gmail and GSuite users. With a nod to apps like WhatsApp and Signal which allow chats to disappear, Google is allowing its users to send confidential emails that are protecting with a passcode and will be deleted after a set period of time (aka ephemeral messaging).
Discovery isn’t restricted to data found on file servers, laptops and phones anymore.
Google recently announced that it would be adding a new feature to its Gmail offering that would automatically update emails stored in users’ mailboxes.
The good news for small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) is that there are a lot of free and inexpensive productivity and communication tools available to help them run their businesses.
