Symantec has announced that its updated Enterprise Vault 10 software is due out in the second half of 2011. This release will add new integration with the company’s data loss prevention and encryption technologies to automate governance processes. Interestingly, it will also provide tools to automatically archive social media interactions.

IDM brought this news to our attention in their article, “Social media goes into the Vault.” Archiving social media can be used for compliance, eDiscovery or corporate governance purposes.

This new feature will leverage Symantec’s DLP technology to analyze email content and metadata, automatically classify the email, and assign the appropriate archiving and retention policy.
