Proofpoint Named a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving for Seventh Consecutive Year

December 6, 2018

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Proofpoint, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving * for the seventh consecutive year. The report provides a detailed overview of the enterprise information archiving market and evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“We believe our Leader position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving for the seventh consecutive year reflects our unmatched, proven ability to reduce reputational risk across all electronically stored information sources that matter, including email, collaboration platforms, social media, voice, and text,” said Darren Lee, senior vice president and general manager of Compliance and Digital Risk for Proofpoint. “From our view, we are an established leader in cloud archiving deployments and are committed to eliminating the burden of managing archiving in-house, streamlining compliance, automating eDiscovery, and giving our customers complete control of their data.”

As organizations increasingly migrate their data to the cloud, legacy on-premises solutions do not provide the secure environment necessary to manage the growth of unstructured data. Proofpoint Enterprise Archive simplifies compliance, easily manages data growth, and reduces the cost of e-discovery with streamlined legal, discovery, regulatory compliance, machine learning capabilities, and end-user data access. Proofpoint works across the industry’s broadest collection of electronically stored information (ESI) sources and enables IT teams to more efficiently manage and access their data.

As regulations and requirements differ greatly across regions and verticals, Proofpoint’s global presence also enables organizations to meet data sovereignty requirements and benefit from a customer base across regulated industries such as financial services, public sector, and healthcare. Proofpoint Enterprise Archive establishes and enforces policies and review processes for specific regulations and geographies to reduce the risk of costly fines, adverse inferences, and damaged reputations.
