Backup Email from Zimbra with Vaultastic

Vaultastic’s modern Zimbra Email Archiving solution safely protects your critical data in the cloud.

Native Backup of Email in Zimbra and Email archiving solutions for Zimbra have limitations.

Email communications must be secured as they are vital to any company’s documentation and records. Even the law needs it. Any data loss or breach can harm the company’s business continuity and reputation.

Though the Zimbra email solution is a popular way to improve productivity at the workplace, it’s native backup, and archiving tools have limitations in a modern digital context.

The native Zimbra email archiving solutions and Zimbra mail backup and restore, and recovery tools fall short on flexibility, security, scalability, and supporting regulatory compliance.

And since most Zimbra installations are on-premises, this adds a lower reliability element to the limitation mix.

More specifically, native email archiving solutions for Zimbra and Zimbra mail backup and restore tools suffer the following challenges:

100% data capture is not guaranteed.

By their very design, backup tools are periodic and not continuous. Any data added and deleted between two backup runs can get lost forever.

Thus, a backup cannot guarantee that 100% of your email data is secured.

No Deduplication in Archiving

The native email archiving solutions for Zimbra journals email of selected users into a chosen mailbox, including copies sent via cc and bcc. And these are stored without any deduplication leading to a massive waste of storage.

No self-service for end users

The end-user does not have permission to go through archives and restore them. This limitation negatively impacts productivity. In significant scenarios, the user has to request a support ticket that IT teams must resolve to retrieve archived emails.

Email Encryption is not available

A modern archive must abide by regulations, one of which is to encrypt emails at rest and in transit. Thus a native Zimbra email archiving tool does not fully comply with rules and is not aligned with foundational security best practices.

No protection against hardware issues.

Since Zimbra keeps the archived emails and backups on the same computer as the regular accounts, you will lose access to your archived emails if there is a problem with the Zimbra server. Learn more.
