Ontrack PowerControls helps companies restore emails to the cloud

Epsom, 2 March 2016 – Kroll Ontrack, the data recovery and ediscovery services leader, has launched version 7.3 of Ontrack® PowerControls™ for Exchange, which now enables companies to access mailboxes from Microsoft® Office 365 or Microsoft® Exchange Online.

As with previous versions of Ontrack® PowerControls™, specific email items can be searched and restored from existing backup files within seconds. This latest version of the software allows administrators to take that process a step further and move items directly into an Office 365 mailbox. At the same time, existing online mailboxes, messages and other mail items can be exported as a .PST file for archiving or compliance.

Robin England, Senior Research and Development Engineer at Kroll Ontrack said: “In many cases, midsize and large companies have now adopted a hybrid cloud infrastructure. Due to the sheer complexity and adaptation of larger IT environments or regulatory issues, it is often not possible for larger companies to fully migrate to Office 365.

“For this reason, only certain email accounts are outsourced, while others remain in the company. This introduces new challenges for anyone in charge of the email management process.  The retention periods of deleted emails in Office 365 default accounts are usually quite short. If they are not backed up by third-party software, they will be destroyed permanently after a very short time period. At the same time important emails can also disappear in the cloud-based Office 365 or Exchange Online due to employee mistakes or other defects. Ontrack PowerControls offers the right solution for both scenarios.”

Ontrack PowerControls 7.3 for Exchange provides the following benefits:

  • Restore email messages in a few seconds from existing backup EDB files – directly to the local Exchange server, to an Office 365 tenant or to a new or an existing PST file
  • Move emails directly from an EDB file into an active Exchange Online mailbox or copy local emails from Exchange 2016 into an Office 365 user mailbox
  • Find lost, deleted and archived mailbox items quickly and easily
  • Search and find emails about various data sources away (Backup File, offline Exchange Server 5.5 to 2016, Exchange Online or Office 365)
