An Enterprise Archiving Leader, 4 Years Running

Developing a modern enterprise archiving strategy isn’t easy.  IT departments are increasingly plagued by data growth and service requirements back to internal customers.   Legal and compliance teams struggle with how to best retain, access, discover and ultimately dispose of content in compliance with evolving regulations.  For these reasons, each year organizations across the globe look to Gartner, Inc for a comprehensive evaluation of products and services that provide archiving for email, social media, files and other content types. At Proofpoint, we’re thrilled to say that we’ve been named a Leader for the fourth consecutive year in a row. That is some serious staying power and strong validation for us as the market continues to consolidate and shift.

It’s easy to see why.  Just ask our customers.  Proofpoint Enterprise Archive is a next generation archiving solution that addresses three fundamental challenges—legal discovery, regulatory compliance, and end user email access—without the headaches of managing archiving in-house.   In a recent survey[1], our customers told us exactly how Proofpoint is measuring up against these key pains:

  • 74% achieve ROI in less than 18 months
  • 64% said reduced cost of storage and maintenance is the biggest advantage over on-premises solutions
  • Simplified eDiscovery and legal holds are the biggest challenges solved by deploying Proofpoint
  • The majority of our customers see an increase in workforce productivity of at least 25% through faster access to data, self-service recovery and integrated legal/compliance search

Top this with proven customer satisfaction on both product and support (to the tune of 90% renewal rates and 95% customer satisfaction rates) and you know why Proofpoint is the longest-standing SaaS Leader in the quadrant today.  We’ve become the de-facto standard for cloud archiving in an era where a Software as a Service model is rapidly outpacing on-premises models.  In fact, Gartner sees 60% to 70% of new or replacement email archiving implementations as being cloud-based.  Our customers know that no one is better suited to infinitely scale with their enterprise.  Further, Gartner has recognized Proofpoint’s ability to offer a complete end-to-end set of capabilities to manage information risk.  Industry leading compliance supervision, strong eDiscovery features and a financially backed search performance SLA are other key components that keep us a market leader and, more importantly, our customers happy.

We urge you to utilize the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving to gain insight into the critical capabilities that make up a Leader.  According to Gartner, “EIA solutions traditionally were implemented by highly regulated environments, such as financial services and healthcare, but this is changing as organizations of all sizes and all industries are starting to retain and manage email and other unstructured data for compliance, risk, governance and cost optimization.”  In other words, these challenges impact everyone as next-generation solutions seek to move beyond simply playing defense and into a solution that proactively brings more business value.  That’s exactly what Proofpoint can help deliver, we invite you to see our solution in action with our upcoming live demo. Again, our ranking is proof that we’re delivering on our vision and execution to build the most efficient, cost-optimized and risk-adverse solutions for our customers.  Stay tuned for more exciting news from Proofpoint!
