ExchangeTek, a Veritas and Symantec “Gold” Partner, was founded in 2003 for the purpose of providing highly focused design and implementation expertise for archiving, e-discovery and DLP projects.
ExchangeTek’s technical bench was greatly strengthened, in 2005, by the arrival of Dan Littman, VP of Technical Services. Prior to joining ExchangeTek, Dan was an Enterprise Vault Solutions Architect with Symantec/Veritas. Dan manages the development and deployment of ExchangeTek’s technical resources.

As a legacy KVS Consulting Partner, ExchangeTek was well-prepared to deliver enterprise-class design and implementation services, after the acquisition by Symantec/Veritas, for their Messaging Management platform.
This platform was anchored by the market-leading Enterprise Vault product suite.
While ExchangeTek continues to provide world-class on-premise Enterprise Vault services, we also have adapted to the changing landscape to accommodate customers looking to take advantage of cloud-based services, and migrate their Enterprise Vault data, to either new on-premise servers, or various cloud solutions, such as Microsoft 365.
ExchangeTek projects have included Fortune 50, Fortune 1000 and SMB size projects.
Regardless of the size of the customer or the size of your project, we take the time to ensure that we customize your solution for your needs, leveraging the best of breed in software/tools, design, implementation, and training.
