Slack is a messaging and collaboration platform for teams. Slack’s features include real-time messaging, archiving and search. The Cloud-based platform can be accessed via a range of devices and platforms. Plus, it integrates with other apps, such as Skype for video calls. Used by over 5M users and 60,000 active teams, Slack is one of the most popular enterprise collaboration platforms.
Communications taking place over Slack can easily be archived when adding Merge1 to your existing infrastructure. As opposed to other archiving compliance solutions, which require sending your workforce’s critical, sensitive communications to a third party data store, Merge1 captures Slack communications and stores them in your existing email archive, whether on-prem (e.g. Veritas Enterprise Vault) or in the Cloud (e.g. Microsoft Office 365).
Once archived, Slack communications can be retained, supervised for compliance and searched for eDiscovery and internal Information Governance.

Jay Tomlin, Director, Product Management, Citrix ShareFile
“Citrix worked closely with Globanet on the development of the ShareFile connector for Merge1, so that our joint customers could leverage the ShareFile platform for file sharing and collaboration while continuing to capture all user communications into the archive solution of their choosing. We chose to work with Globanet on this problem because we recognized Merge1 as the leading solution for capturing content and communications from multiple cloud platforms into any archive. We are committed to supporting customers who deploy Merge1 as a method for capturing and archiving communications that occur on the ShareFile platform.”
