End-of-contract data extraction For ThreatDetect virtual or hardware on-site deployments, log data is archived on customer-owned storage devices throughout the contract, thus no extraction required.

For ThreatDetect deployments hosted by Redscan, users will have access to their data for a period of 30 days after the expiry of the contract. Data download charges may apply.
End-of-contract process Once a contractual agreement has ended, Redscan will provide all data, confidential information, or any documentation held by Redscan which the organisation does not have a copy of in a readable format or CSV. Redscan will also ensure that it retains all records and data in accordance with applicable law.

Where required, Redscan can provide a range of exit assistance services to help the organisation to transition the service to an alternative supplier or manage the service themselves. The required assistance will be scoped and a suitable exit management plan will presented to the organisation with an estimation of the required professional services.

Redscan will always ensure that exit assistance services are performed in a professional, efficient, and orderly manner. Redscan can also provide continued support once a contractual agreement has ended up until the organisation is ready to transition these services. Additional charges will apply accordingly.
