MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - August 30, 2016) - ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), the leader in unified information governance and analytics for the large enterprise, today announced that ZL File Analysis and Management (ZL FAM) has been named a "2016 Trend-Setting Product" by KMWorld. ZL's new file analysis capabilities scale to the enormous, growing demand to rein in corporate file share environments by joining advanced analytics capabilities with industry-leading governance architecture.
The distinction recognizes products in the knowledge management space that offer unique value to customers, including adaptability, usability, total cost of ownership, and vision. As part of ZL's greater initiative towards complete data management, ZL FAM provides organizations with a seamless and intuitive process to identify, organize, and control unstructured data, each of which is critical to establishing an infrastructure for efficient ongoing data management.
"Each year we look for software products that break new territory in helping organizations achieve their knowledge management goals," said Sandra Haimila, Editor for KMWorld. "Designated as a KMWorld Trend-Setting Product of 2016, ZL File Analysis and Management holds the promise for the marketplace."
ZL Unified Archive® (ZL UA) has long been acclaimed by KMWorld as a pioneer in the governance of unstructured data, offering customers a unique architecture with a single repository for data storage and management. Capable of being used as both a standalone product and in synthesis with ZL UA, ZL FAM advances the company's singular vision of unified information governance by enabling customers to assess the contents of their file share through metadata and accelerated content analysis, file remediation, and full-text indexing for selected items. These procedures reduce storage costs and security risks while optimizing the functionality of eDiscovery, compliance, and information governance as a whole.
Free from prohibitive data "silos," which often prove an insurmountable hurdle to cost-effective and defensible leverage of unstructured content, ZL's unified approach brings all aspects of information governance into a single application. The result is a platform unaffected by common obstacles to data management, such as duplicate files, inconsistent search, and disjointed retention.
"Finding and protecting sensitive data can be like searching for water in a sandstorm: just as difficult, but just as important," said Kon Leong, CEO of ZL Technologies, Inc. "Modern businesses must understand exactly what they have and who can access it, yet most organizations get left in the dust when it comes to assessing this 'dark data.' KMWorld's recognition underscores ZL FAM's capability to proactively gain control of previously vulnerable content."
