Here are some thoughts from thoughts from GWAVA CEO, Ken Muir. He said “GWAVA is honored to to receive this award and recognition from Info-Tech.  Retain is the fastest growing and most comprehensive next-generation archiving solution available in the marketplace”. Mr. Muir further states, “Over 3000 customers, in over 65 countries, depend on Retain to ensure compliance, govern their information and provide organizational insights.”

Let’s expound a little on what these awards mean. Quoting from the report “Champions within the Info‑Tech Content and Email Archive Vendor Landscape receive high scores for most evaluation criteria and offer excellent value. They have a strong market presence and are the trend-setters for the industry.”

Another great quote about the Value Score, “…the Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point.  It does not indicate vendor ranking. Vendors that score high offer more bang-for-the-buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.”

“GWAVA is the the most complete product at its price point.”


John Sloan, Research Director at Info‑Tech, and principal analyst for this report, had some great things to say about the Retain Unified Archiving solution. “On a relative basis, GWAVA maintained the highest Info‑Tech Value Score of the vendor group. Vendors were indexed against GWAVA’s performance to provide a complete, relative view of their product offerings.”

Mr. Sloan further states, “GWAVA is the the most complete product at its price point,”, and “Retain provides a wide set of tools that protects information as well as extending discovery to social media, search and mobile devices.”  Sloan goes on to say, “GWAVA has the best value for highly regulated enterprises through the best practices information for financial and healthcare.”
