We are pleased to announce that Actiance, the creator of Alcatraz, was included in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving.
Gartner has stated, “By 2019, 75% of organizations will treat archived data as an active and “nearline” data source, and not simply as a separate repository to be viewed or searched periodically, up from less than 10% today.”
Found within the Magic Quadrant, Gartner goes on to say, “GWAVA is one of the few vendors that offers native Gmail archiving support. Retain has the ability to search and take action on outside data sources and to conduct eDiscovery activities across any connected dataset.”
“Broader information governance concerns (regulatory compliance, business-focused retention and deletion of data, and managing aging data based on a clear understanding of its value) are beginning to surpass e-discovery as the primary driver for deploying EIA.”
Gartner, Inc. positions Proofpoint in the Leaders Quadrant in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving.
