Theta Lake Brings Intelligent Unified Communication and Collaboration Supervision to Mimecast Customers

By September 29, 2020No Comments

Santa Barbara, CA—September 29, 2020— Theta Lake, Inc., the most recognized leader in collaboration security and compliance management that helps organizations scale their risk detection in modern collaboration platforms, today announces the integration of Theta Lake’s AI-based Compliance and Risk Management suite with Mimecast’s Cloud Archive. Mimecast Cloud Archive customers can now benefit from a single cloud repository for all communication mediums, the integration includes full capture, retention, and automated risk identification for anything shared, shown, spoken or typed in Zoom Phone, Zoom Meetings, Zoom Chat, Webex Teams, Webex Meetings, Slack, RingCentral Office, Microsoft Teams (Chat, Calls, and Meetings), LogMeIn, BlueJeans, and many more.

Supervision and retention of digital communications has long been a compliance requirement that regulated industries have had to adopt. With the introduction of media-rich collaboration platforms, like video conferencing, organizations have found that using their traditional archive platform for these new Unified Communication (UC) mediums is often substandard because they were predominantly designed for email. This supervision challenge is further compounded today with the recent skyrocketing adoption of collaboration chat and video conferencing solutions to support remote workers.


UC tools have become critical this year to keep the workforce productive, however, they have simultaneously created gaps in compliance, security, and supervision coverage, opening firms up to undue risks. Theta Lake’s integration with Mimecast allows firms to safely, securely, and compliantly enable remote working while realizing the following benefits,

  • Automated Risk Detection: Theta Lake shares content analytics, risk scores, and policy detections in what was said, shown (screen share, virtual whiteboard, webcam), or shared with Mimecast, enabling compliance, legal, and risk teams to be more efficient finding and addressing risks than through traditional search.
  • Remote Work Enablement: Firms can confidently use all of the rich communication and information sharing features of collaboration tools without concern for blind spots
  • Efficiency and Cost Savings: AI and ML reduce compliance review cost and time while adding more communication capabilities for remote workers

“Without Theta Lake, the state of the art in collaboration archiving is raw capture of the MP4 or the MP3 recording and rudimentary search of transcripts  Worse than the fact that leaves too many blind spots, is the massive burden this puts on compliance and security staff that need to review and find risks in this massively increasing data set, said Anthony Cresci, VP of Business Development and Operations. “In fact, it is estimated that just the reviewer watching recorders to find risks takes between 2 to 2.5x the time of the recording itself, and that’s without the additional effort applied downstream to report and address issues. With Theta Lake’s full coverage for video, voice, and chat, its Automated Risk Detection, and its complete review space, Mimecast customers can complete review and respond to incidents in less than half the time of the recorded and captured content itself. That can represent more than 3x time and resource saving while improving coverage and the ability to use key collaboration features.”

The innovative Theta Lake and Mimecast integration alleviates modern communication business preservation and supervision challenges, providing full capture and SEC 17a-4 compliant archiving across all unified communications and email, rich search across metadata and within voice, visual, and text-based content, plus advanced digital analysis on collaboration content with machine-learning based classifiers that are tuned for identifying real and relevant risks, including confidential data and privacy, security, conduct, and custom, company-specific policies. These classifiers operate not just on text, but also across what was said, shown on screen or virtual whiteboards, images on webcams, or any content shared in collaboration chat, giving joint customers the most comprehensive visibility across both new and legacy communication channels.
