You've seen the headlines. Financial firms are fined millions of dollars when just one employee does something they shouldn't. It can be as serious as insider trading or as seemingly innocent as an inappropriate instant message. Keeping track of who is saying, doing, and trading what is a daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications and trading platforms.

That’s where Bloomberg Vault comes in. We are composed of Bloomberg Vault Archive and Bloomberg Surveillance to provide a single platform for more than 1,000 organizations customers. Our clients use Bloomberg Vault to manage and archive their enterprise communications and collaboration data, including email, instant message (IM), mobile, files, trade and documents, voice data and social media. Our multi-tenant cloud processes 300 million messages daily and stores about 90 billion archived objects, and we are looking to grow significantly in the next two years.

Vault Foundations team is at the core of Bloomberg Vault's business and architecture. Leveraging a broad portfolio of Bloomberg and open source technologies, the underlying systems are designed to securely manage user identity, permissions, and account-level configurations. Our team provides data access in a scalable way through services and APIs that's widely integrated to Vault's Archive and Surveillance systems. We are also responsible for critical control systems over Bloomberg's communication platforms MSG and IB.

Vault Engineering is embarking on building a new Integrated Compliance Platform, which will provide our clients a seamless experience across Vault products and allow them to self-configure key functionalities. The platform is being built using micro-service architecture with modern technologies such as React in the front-end and GraphQL, Kafka, Java/Python, Redis  and Postgres in the back-end.
