Retention and Compliance for RingCentral Unified Communications

Organizations have electronic communication retention and supervision policies in place to comply with regulations, such as Dodd-Frank, PCI-DSS, and MiFID II, as well as ensure that the content of these communications comply with company policies, quality standards, and external regulations. The volume of call recordings and digital content that require retention and supervision can be staggering, making review and compliance difficult.

Theta Lake provides AI-based compliance and archiving for RingCentral contact center, audio and video recordings, SMS, Teams Messaging, faxes, and voicemails with automated risk detection in digital content based on NLP and deep-learning powered policies.

ZK Research White Paper:
Solve Hybrid Work Compliance Challenges with Theta Lake and RingCentral

Hybrid work is here to stay. Collaboration tools play a key role in energizing the workforce and enabling productivity.  Yet, this often creates compliance “blind spots,” particularly for regulated industries. Fortunately, RingCentral and Theta Lake have teamed up to address these issues, and Theta Lake’s approach to hybrid world compliance enables firms to be successful and enable digital transformation.



Regulatory requirements including Dodd-Frank and MiFID II have expanded the amount of audio recording that organizations have accumulated. That is now compounded by privacy rules like GDPR and California Consumer Privacy Act along with personal accountability regimes for compliance teams, which means those recordings need review, supervision, and audit.

Organizations don’t have the toolset to efficiently, effectively, and affordably performing compliance review, supervision, and archiving on large volumes of RingCentral recordings. Existing approaches have been inadequate,

  • Manual Review – Lacks scale and is costly
  • Legacy Archiving and DLP Tools – Focused on text-based communication
  • Transcription with Search Tools – Lacks accuracy, doesn’t cover visual content, takes too much time, costly

Theta Lake also offers an archive connector that captures all RingCentral content in context and adds it to your existing archive. Download our solution overview to learn more.
