Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving, 2014
Analyst firm Gartner, Inc. once again positions Proofpoint's cloud-based Enterprise Archiving product in the Leaders Quadrant of the new 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving which provides a detailed overview of the Enterprise Information Archiving market.
Gartner notes that, “Archiving as a service (aka cloud archiving) has rapidly surpassed on-premises archiving as the preferred deployment model for most organizations. Gartner sees 60% to 70% of new or replacement email archiving implementations as being cloud-based."
Gartner analysts Garth Landers, Alan Dayley, Anthony Kros and Jai Zhang write that, “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.”
