In a world full of regulations, threats and constant exchange of information, organization’s need go well beyond securing their environment and take proper action before it is too late.
In any corporate environment, unexpected activities travel through a Domino environment everyday and typically go undetected until it is too late to take corrective action. At that point, when auditors and/or management come knocking on the door looking for specific information, you have not logged anything, resulting in major losses for the organization.
One significant problem is that some organizations tend to wait and put other priorities ahead, causing to delay their compliance and auditing requirements until it’s too late. From our past experience, we normally recommend to log and monitor your Domino environment early as possible before an issue arises and emergency situation does occur. Essentially, organizations have to perpetually monitor and log all the activities in their Domino environment in order to know who did exactly what, when, where and how. In today’s business world, the stakes are high and accountability is everything.
What is an audit trail and why is it needed?
In simplest terms, an audit trail will seize the bad guys, detect inconsistencies, demonstrate compliance and assure that your organization is protected against internal and external threats. More importantly, it assures that all the activities that travel through your Domino Environment is used only in intended and appropriate ways. This logged information can be the difference maker for an organizations success and protects them against significant losses that often go undetected until it’s too late.
So why wait?
SecurTrac is a non-disruptive and non-intrusive compliance solution for corporate governance and auditing. It is the only complete audit trail system that tracks the life cycle of all user activities and other objects within IBM Lotus Notes and Domino.

With the ongoing trend in many organizations to consolidate and reduce the number of physical servers in their environment to help save capital and operating costs, many companies continue to virtualize their servers. Running servers in a virtual environment such as VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V has quickly become the new standard in I.T. datacenters.
At Extracomm, many customers have asked us “I want to virtualize my ExtraFax server. How can I do this?” Generally speaking, there has always been one major hurdle to overcome as it relates to being able to virtualize any fax server, including ExtraFax. The main issue relates to the fact that fax boards are not natively compatible when installed directly within virtual server hardware. This dilemma has prevented many organizations from being able to virtualize their ExtraFax server. Click here
to review this document which will highlight some of the different methods that organizations can consider which would allow them to virtualize their ExtraFax server implementation, including 100% Virtualization of an ExtraFax server using T.38 FoIP(Fax over IP). Click here

Leading Industrial Company Deploys Out of Office Manager
“I actually deployed Out Of Office Manager this morning, tested it and asked 4 other IT users with iOS to test it for me as well. Deployment was simple and straightforward. The app performs its function reliably and we are quite happy with what it does. I also tested the web app, which was a snap to setup and use and I can easily train everyone else in IT how to use it. An interesting benefit I've found by putting the Out of Office Manager on our extranet Domino server is that users without VPN or Traveler access can still manage their own out of office. Pretty handy!”

Don’t be caught off guard and loose valuable organizational data
Implementing proper security measures for your Domino environment is critical for several reasons. One reason is to protect valuable organizational data since its precious and holds value just like all other business assets. Such critical data, including e-mail and database documents are both vital to the organization's continued success. E-mail data and database documents could contain valuable information such as customer contact names, client list, sales records, marketing documents, phone numbers, addresses and other confidential information.
How issues can arise
If the organization gets caught off guard without a proper security tool, losing such data could be extremely harmful to the business and its survival. One source that is likely to produce this act is a disgruntled employee. Disgruntled employees may intentionally bulk delete e-mail or database documents in an attempt to get even with the organization. Securing your Domino environment with the proper tools can significantly reduce or eliminate such issues for your organization.
How to prevent such dilemmas
Why risk losing critical organizational data? SecurTrac’s bulk action detection feature can be configured to monitor for any bulk action that occurs within your Domino environment, such as bulk deletion of e-mail or database documents. With real-time notification alerts when SecurTrac monitors are triggered, and the ability to rollback and easily restore deleted data with click of a button, SecurTrac gives you the ultimate tool to enhance security for your Domino environment.
These are just some of SecurTrac’s great features and benefits.
- Monitor your mail, database, directory, notes.ini, user activity and more.
- Enables compliance for internal and external regulations such as SOX, HIPAA and CFR Part 11.
- Ability to implement a mail policy filter.
- Perform eDiscovery searches within over voluminous data, which otherwise may be impossible to conduct manually.
