RetentionPoint Metadata Retention as a Service is a turnkey
“compliance-ready” service that
encompasses secure metadata
collection, processing, storage and
retrieval. It can be rapidly deployed
and scaled to suit any Service
Provider, functioning as a safety
deposit box for your metadata.
The service works by configuring your systems to export relevant metadata to an on-premise data collector. The data is then compressed, encrypted and transmitted to your tenant-safe repository, hosted in our secure Australian data centre facilities.
Deployment is conducted by our consultants in concert with your technical team, offering both a faster and cheaper alternative to a full inhouse compliance process.
Optionally at the conclusion of the implementation, our legal counsel certifies that your solution conforms to the agreed scope.
What we offer
SECURE BY DESIGN
Our service helps you meet your privacy obligations by encrypting data both in transit and at rest. Our use of Self Encrypting Disk ensures that even when faulty hard drives are replaced, there is no recoverable data on the platter.
RAPID DATA DISCOVERY
Collecting metadata is only part of the picture – it must also be quick to retrieve when directed to do so by law enforcement. With RetentionPoint, all metadata records are fully indexed, reducing data discovery times to mere minutes. This frees up staff time and reduces the human cost of actioning Data Disclosure Requests.
Adhering to our brand promise of delivering business solutions using a Cloud business model, Data Retention as a Service is delivered using a flexible pay-as-you-grow pricing model.
Once you have identified your Relevant Services and Data Set, our consultants work with your team to analyse the formats of your metadata feeds. Based on this, we configure an on-premise data collector to ingest the data, which is then converted into the appropriate format ready for indexing, storage and later retrieval.
Base Service Fee
The base service fee covers the cost of hosting and operating the infrastructure that collects and indexes your metadata. With this, we include a daily metadata volume of 1GB / day (averaged over each calendar month), as well as full technical support.
If you need to send us more than 1GB / day of metadata (averaged over each calendar month), then there is a surcharge for the additional metadata you send us. For example, if you send us an average 3GB of metadata per day in a calendar month, then we will charge in arrears for the additional data over the included 1GB / day.
Your metadata is stored on two separate disk nodes within the data centre as well as being backed up to a second facility. We charge per GB per month for the volume of metadata that we are securely storing and backing up for you.
Implementation of our service as well as any significant reconfiguration (e.g. to accommodate metadata retention of new services) is charged at a competitive consulting day rate.
