All encrypted SMS/Text messages and dedicated business phone number data is pushed from the secure server to Retain, via the Retain Collector. The Retain Collector then routes that data directly to the Retain Unified Archive. Additionally, Retain archives BBM Enterprise messages on iOS devices.

Retain Mobile pulls the data directly from the BES itself; therefore, individual BlackBerry device communication are tracked and logged directly from BES, bringing the inactive BES logs to life. Plus, all data is archived to the Retain unified archive database. There, the data is easily reviewed, retrieved, discovered and published—on demand.
