    O365 safeguarding and compliance with Free A2 Plan

    We are considering moving to Office 365 (from Novell Groupwise but that is a whole other thread!). I was trying to find out how other schools are finding the various compliance tools with regard to safeguarding.

    I have been looking at the compliance features listed here: Compliance Features in Exchange Online . specifically the Discovery (search across all mailboxes) and Transport Rule features seem to be the most relevant. I am assuming that accessing all users mailboxes is a given.

    Id be interested to hear whether these are available on the free A2 plan and what other schools using O365 do around safeguarding and content filtering/monitoring.

    Thanks!

    You can't do journaling for free. That is the reason we are sticking to a local Exchange server. If you purchase this for every mailbox it get pretty costly!

    Yes you can, to an on-prem or third party service. If you want it in the cloud in Exchange Online then it comes under Exchange Online Plan 2.

    Nothing to stop you using free Exchange Online and journaling out to somewhere else.

    Its pointless moving from Exchange in house if the journalling is on premise. If you use someone else cloud service it will probably have to be paid for so it works out more expensive using 365.

    You can Journal off to Google Apps for Education to free? Okay, there's not a tidy UI, but it works.

    Is anyone able to confirm whether searching across mailboxes, transport rules (content filtering) and admin access to mailbox content is possible on the free A2 plan?

    What are schools that are currently on the free plan doing regarding this area?

    Thanks

    That's the one. Journal it off to a separate email address you have setup on Google Apps for Education. Job done.

    Been looking at this a bit more - following the Google mining post - and it seems you can BCC to a mailbox in your Office 365 tenant so that could do away with the need to use a third party to journal off to.

    Who says? It's the recommended way of working with large archiving companies such as Symantec, as they will poll that mailbox.
