EMC announced that Documentum Records Manager 6.5 has achieved Department of Defense 5015.2-STD version 3 certification for both standard and classified records. The certification is valid through December 22, 2012, according to the DoD.
DoD 5015.2 is the software standard that provides implementation and procedural guidance on the management of records in the DOD.
"Achieving DoD 5015.2 version 3 certification for Documentum Records Manager is a testament of our commitment to make information governance actionable for our customers," said Jeff Bettencourt, vice president and GM of EMC”s information governance product group, content management and archiving division.
According to a 2009 IDC study, titled As the Economy Contracts, the Digital Universe Expands, the amount of information considered subject to rules that govern what information must be stored and accessible to regulating authorities and auditors will grow from 23 percent in 2008 to 35 percent in 2012.
To stay in line with that expected growth, EMC said it has extended the certification beyond electronic records management through the pairing of Records Manager with EMC SourceOne Email Management and EMC Centera content addressed storage system to provide customers with a certified email records management solution.
EMC said it plans to apply for MoReq2 certification this year to address European requirements.
