What does Data Retention Mean?

Data Retention is a technology which permits users to:
  • acquire and archive huge quantities of elementary data representing various kinds of events;
  • keep this data for long periods of time;
  • ensure the inalterability and consistency of the data as well as its validity over time;
  • search and retrieve the relevant data to the customer as well as requests from the judicial authorities in a short time, providing indisputable evidence of their reliability, so that they can also be used in criminal proceedings.

Data Retention is one of the main survey tools for detective agencies, with applications that require enormous scalability, long storage periods and fast response capabilities.
