Clearwell Systems Named "Cool Vendor" by Leading Analyst Firm

Vendors Selected for the “Cool Vendor Report” are innovative, impactful, and intriguing

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—March 22, 2006—Clearwell Systems, Inc., a pioneer in the emerging Email Intelligence market, today announced it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the “Cool Vendors in High-Performance Workplace, 2006” report, published on March 15, 2006 by Carolyn DiCenzo and Kenneth Chin, et al., of Gartner Inc. Gartner’s Cool Vendors for 2006 reflect a spectrum of technologies—collaboration, information access, messaging, e-learning and metadata markup—that help create and support a high performance workplace.

The rapid growth of email as the de facto system of record coupled with increasing regulatory investigations and corporate litigation has created an urgent need for companies of all sizes to implement an Email Intelligence solution. The Clearwell Email Intelligence Platform™ is the industry’s first dedicated Email Intelligence solution that discovers, organizes and analyzes information contained in corporate email repositories including Exchange servers, personal folders (.pst files), journaling servers, and archives from leading email archive vendors.

“We believe being highlighted as a Cool Vendor by Gartner is testament to Clearwell’s leadership in the emerging Email Intelligence market and the overwhelming demand for a solution that enables enterprises to analyze large amounts of email data,” said Aaref Hilaly, president and CEO of Clearwell Systems. “Clearwell complements email archiving solutions to provide enterprises with a proactive approach to extracting critical business information from email. With mounting legal and compliance requirements, companies are turning to Clearwell to reduce risks, automate e-discovery processes, and slash costs stemming from manual review of email.”

Clearwell’s Email Intelligence solution discovers, extracts and delivers an unprecedented level of actionable intelligence from corporate email systems. Unlike keyword search tools that simply index and provide access to historical emails, Clearwell analyzes the unique properties of email and applies proprietary, patent-pending linguistic and statistical analysis algorithms to deliver the following unique capabilities: single view into all email data repositories, discussion threads, email relevance ranking, dashboards and analytics, and quick and easy implementation.
