Read Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving
Gartner, Inc. positions Proofpoint in the Leaders Quadrant in its 2012 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving.
Gartner analysts Sheila Childs, Kenneth Chin, Debra Logan and Alan Dayley note that, “The EIA market is healthy and growing rapidly. EIA has emerged as a commonly used technology underpinning for higher-level use cases supporting information governance, e-discovery, historical preservation of data and application retirement.”
In this report, Gartner analysts note that, “Archiving as a service (aka cloud archiving) has rapidly surpassed on-premises archiving as the preferred deployment model for most organizations.” Gartner also observes that, “Aging on-premises archiving platforms are being replaced by more modern solutions, and migration from one archive to another, although difficult, is becoming commonplace.”
