GWAVA Positioned in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Management & Governance

Retain Unified Archiving Platform Secures Position and Earning Recognition for Excellence in Secure Multi-platform Unified Archiving

12 October 2014

GWAVA, the leading provider of compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for electronic communication, is pleased to announce at AWS Re:Invent, that it is positioned in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Management & Governance. Gartner has stated, "By 2019, 75% of organizations will treat archived data as an active and "nearline" data source, and not simply as a separate repository to be viewed or searched periodically, up from less than 10% today."

“GWAVA is honored to be included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Management & Governance,” said Ken Muir, CEO GWAVA. He continued, “We believe that this appearance in the Magic Quadrant by GWAVA is by far its most notable appearance, focusing on our unified archiving solution. We also believe that the ability to archive email, social media and mobile, makes Retain the unified archiving solution for organizations around the world."

Retain by GWAVA provides multi-platform unified message archiving of all email (including Exchange, Office 365, Gmail and GroupWise), social media, and mobile communication data (for BlackBerry, Android and iOS) for case assessment, search, and eDiscovery and can be deployed on-prem or in the cloud. The Retain archive is accessible by end users and administrators directly through Retain’s Web Access Archive Viewer. This enables your organization to quickly access, search, and audit archived communication data, as well as to easily place litigation holds, print, forward, save, redact, and export your message data. Retain reduces cost, mitigates risk, and manages complexity on prem or in the cloud.
