Once again Gartner has named Symantec as a leader in the Enterprise Information Archiving magic quadrant. We’ve continued to invest significantly in this market and it is gratifying to see the recognition for the continued effort we put into archiving both in the cloud and on premises with our Enterprise Vault.cloud and Enterprise Vault products. Symantec has now been rated a leader 9 years in a row.
This year marks a transition in a couple of regards. We are seeing an acceleration of customers looking for the convenience and simplicity of SaaS based archiving solution. The caveat being that they want the security and trust that only a vendor like Symantec can deliver.
Similarly the market has continued to ask for integrated solutions that deliver information archiving and eDiscovery to quickly address often complex and time sensitive process of litigation and regulatory requests. The deep integration we offer between our archiving solutions – Enterprise Vault and Enterprise Vault.cloud – and the Clearwell eDiscovery Platform has led many customers to deploy these together to streamline their eDiscovery workflow.
An archive is inherently deployed with the long term in mind. Over the history of Gartner’s Enterprise Information Archiving MQ, only Symantec has provided a consistent solution to customers by investing and innovating with Enterprise Vault to lead the industry in performance, functionality, and support without painful migrations or changes.
We’re excited about what we have planned next for Enterprise Vault and Enterprise Vault.cloud and intend to maintain our leadership in the years to come. Our customers will continue to be able to manage their critical information assets and meet their needs for eDiscovery and Information Governance as we improve our products year after year.
