Micro Focus (GWAVA) Positioned in Gartner Magic Quadrant 2014



GWAVA is pleased to announce that it is positioned in Gartner‘s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving. GWAVA was selected for providing organizations industry leading solutions for compliance and e-discovery, reducing primary storage needs, and implementing a unified archiving solution for email, social media and mobile communication.

“GWAVA is honored to be included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving,” 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 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.

Retain’s capabilities are important because as 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.”1

Additional Gartner highlights focused on GWAVA’s recent expansion of an enterprise compliant mobile communication archiving solution that enables compliant capture of SMS data from iOS and Android devices, as well as GWAVA’s partnership with BlackBerry to provide auditing and archiving of Blackberry devices.

About Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving

Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

Gartner defines Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) as, “products and solutions for archiving user content (such as email, files, IM and SharePoint documents) and other data types (such as structured data, websites and social media content). These products provide features such as data reduction across content types, retention management, content indexing and at least basic tools for e-discovery. Due to the complexity associated with managing multiple data types within an archive, EIA can more broadly encompass capabilities like federated archive repository management, and common policy management for migration, retention and discovery across multiple repositories.
