The “Cloud First” strategy to reduce cost and improve overall user productivity brings new compliance and security risks to organizations. This digital transformation in organizations is making a migration to a cloud-based archiving system a logical next step. But developing a secure cloud-based data archiving and compliance strategy isn’t easy. Legal and compliance teams struggle with how to best retain, discover, and supervise email, IM, social media, enterprise collaboration and website content in compliance with evolving regulations around.  They must protect and monitor their organizations and clients’ data. They are also expected to enable secure and compliant use of social media.

Amid this increased regulatory landscape, exponential data growth, staff cuts, and cost constraints, their archiving tools are failing them with inadequate capabilities, obsolescence, increased security risk and an ever-increasing manual workload. They struggle with swiftly producing required records during legal discovery and regulatory audits and demonstrating ongoing supervision of their employees. This widening gap leaves too many organizations vulnerable to fines and regulators’ scrutiny—hurting their reputation and bottom line.

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. Proofpoint is committed to simplifying compliance and e-discovery with uncompromising data security across the ever-changing landscape of enterprise data and this has resulted in seven consecutive years of Gartner enterprise archiving leadership.

We believe our Leader position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving for the seventh consecutive year reflects our unmatched, proven ability to reduce reputational risk across all electronically stored information sources that matter, including email, collaboration platforms, social media, voice, and text.  Proofpoint Enterprise Archive simplifies compliance, easily manages data growth, and reduces the cost of e-discovery with streamlined legal, discovery, regulatory compliance, machine learning capabilities, and end-user data access. Proofpoint works across the industry’s broadest collection of electronically stored information (ESI) sources and enables IT teams to more efficiently manage and access their data. Proofpoint Enterprise Archive establishes and enforces policies and review processes for specific regulations and geographies to reduce the risk of costly fines, adverse inferences, and damaged reputations.
