Legal Hold Profile

Legal Hold Profile

Legal Hold is a process that an organization uses to preserve all forms of relevant information when litigation is reasonably anticipated. A Legal Hold profile is used for specifying where the files need to be held for legal purposes when action of Legal Hold is taken.

You can create a legal hold profile using the classic or next gen platform. In classic, the applications integrations are built on the 1st gen API Data Protection platform. In next gen, the application integrations are built on the latest Next Gen API Data Protection platform. Classic applications will gradually be migrated to next gen.
