NEW YORK — Bloomberg announced today that Bloomberg Vault, its electronic
communications compliance offering, integrates with Microsoft Office 365.
Bloomberg Vault gives financial services firms using Microsoft Office 365 a
cloud-based solution for meeting global regulatory and risk management
guidelines for electronic communications.

Bloomberg’s strategic alliance with Microsoft allows Office 365 subscribers to
easily add Bloomberg Vault as a managed service that includes essential features
such as real-time policy management, search analytics, eDiscovery and secure
archiving for corporate emails and messages.

“Financial services firms are struggling to meet regulatory and legal demands
for the management and storage of electronic communications,” said Harald
Collet, global business manager for Bloomberg Vault. “Compliance mandates are
increasingly complex and the capital costs can be significant. The aim of
Bloomberg Vault-Office 365 is to help financial services organizations embrace
the cloud and meet stringent regulatory requirements.”

Key Bloomberg Vault functionality for Office 365 includes:

-Integrated and secure archiving of all electronic communications as a hosted
service, helping companies to reduce overhead costs by leveraging the cloud;

-Specialized features designed to help financial firms meet compliance
requirements through real-time policy management, advanced search, eDiscovery
