Heritage was facing significant challenges with their technology infrastructure and data compliance framework. Recognizing the potential gaps in their compliance efforts, including an end-of-life Windows server, ineffective file syncing processes using ShareFile and an outdated email service from Intermedia, Heritage went looking for a comprehensive solution that would not only transition their firm to Microsoft 365, but also ensure adherence to 17a-4 regulations. Their search led them to AdvisorVault and their Consolidated 17a-4 D3P service.
Heritage’s Chief Compliance Officer, Todd Johnson, praised AdvisorVault’s streamlined approach, “With their Consolidated 17a-4 D3P service, AdvisorVault addressed multiple compliance gaps for us simultaneously. They helped migrate us onto Microsoft 365 and provided a compliant archiving plug-in that automatically safeguarded all of our cloud-stored data. This enabled us to retire our old server and gave us the ability to leverage Exchange Online with SharePoint for enhanced collaboration and efficiency.”
