Actiance Recognized in Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving

Alcatraz, the archive for the NEXT 10 years™, Was Evaluated Within Six Months of Its Release in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - Actiance, the leading provider of compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for all critical business communications, today announced that it has been named in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving; Alan Dayley, Garth Landers, Anthony Kros, Jie Zhang; November 2014. Actiance was also listed as one of only eight notable venders in the financial services Magic Quadrant contextualization research.

Gartner's strategic planning assumption for the Magic Quadrant is that, "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."

We believe Actiance's inclusion is based in large part on the release in May 2014 of Alcatraz. Alcatraz, unlike other archives, allows organizations to treat archived data as an active and 'nearline' data source, while also reducing the costs of eDiscovery, because Alcatraz is the only archive built using distributed systems, a proven architecture that scales with data growth. As a result, Alcatraz customers have a quick, Google-like search experience and can ingest and export large volumes of data 10 times faster than leading archiving solutions.

"When it comes to archiving, organizations are making 10-year decisions," said Kailash Ambwani, President and CEO of Actiance. "We feel that Gartner's recognition of Actiance in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, just six months after Actiance's release of our archiving solution Alcatraz, drives home just how important it is for organizations to invest in technology designed for where communications are going." 

Actiance, however, is not new to the archiving space. Actiance has enabled highly-regulated organizations, such as, financial services, energy, healthcare and public sector, to adopt and utilize real-time communication channels with peace of mind -- for over a decade. During this time, many Actiance customers have used Vantage and Socialite as an archive for their new communication and collaboration tools. 

Actiance's purpose-built cloud archive, Alcatraz, builds on this experience, offering a solution that meets the complex communications and retention needs of organizations today. It is the first context-aware™ archive for email and all other critical business communications. Communications are preserved in context in an easy-to-view format to make review and eDiscovery faster and less costly.
