Gartner MQ for Enterprise Information Archiving

Proofpoint evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

Sunnyvale, Calif., January 28, 2022 Proofpoint, Inc., a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving* for the 10th consecutive year, which we believe is solidifying the company's position as the longest-tenured Leader in the quadrant. The report provides a detailed overview of the enterprise information archiving market and evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“Both regulated and non-regulated organizations can benefit from the broad functionality of Proofpoint’s innovative people-centric compliance portfolio,” said Darren Lee, executive vice president and general manager of Compliance and Digital Risk, Proofpoint. “Our recognition as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for 10 years running underscores our commitment to providing enterprise-class data capture, e-discovery, supervision, and long-term information access to address the most stringent corporate and regulatory compliance requirements.”

This decade of excellence, underscored by 10 continuous years of recognition by Gartner as a leader, is reinforced by our investment in rapid innovation and helping to solve the real compliance challenges of today, while leveraging customer insights and market trends to uncover the challenges of tomorrow. To stay ahead of evolving compliance needs, Proofpoint reinvests approximately 20 percent of annual revenue into overall R&D—one of the highest percentages in the industry.

With a foundation of Proofpoint Enterprise Archive and Proofpoint Content Capture, along with purpose-built, optional modules, Proofpoint’s people-centric compliance solutions help customers streamline workflows, improve performance, mitigate risks, and reduce costs with embedded intelligence, offering enhanced automation, detection, and visualization.

Technology Assisted Review (TAR), for example, automates mundane tasks like determining responsiveness, taking the guesswork out of large-scale e-discovery operations, and applying insights at scale. Launched earlier this year, NexusAI for Compliance significantly improves detection of low-risk, low-value content, helping reduce the time and cost of supervising digital communications. And the Compliance Risk Dashboard, a feature of Intelligent Supervision, offers an intuitive, visual representation of risk profile. This helps customers easily identify major compliance risks and view violation trends over time.
