You may have heard last week that we had some good news; we’ve gained a second Gartner Magic Quadrant position this year – our enterprise archiving solution has just been positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving. Together with our recent inclusion in the Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways, this is further affirmation of our standing as a leading provider of enterprise email management solutions, and a great way to round off 2012.
Gartner’s analysts took a very close look at the tools we give our customers to manage their information stores and saw our determination to bring innovation and new products to the Information Archiving space. Earlier this year we beefed up our cloud based Information Archiving services, adding some very useful new capabilities for your business and your users: We introduced the Mimecast File Archive which allows you to archive file data from network shares, home drives, SharePoint, Box and Dropbox.
We also launched a new iPad app called Mimefiles, and a much talked about integration between Microsoft SharePoint and the Mimecast cloud archive. Importantly we have given your end users tools to access their personal archive from their chosen email client or mobile device (iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Android, empowering their productivity, like no other Cloud Archive.
Mimecast’s vision for the enterprise archive is that it can do so much more than just store data. Mimecast has a vision for an Interactive Archive, where your cloud archive becomes not only a highly available and secure repository of all enterprise data, but it also becomes an incredibly useful source of information, allowing the business and its users to drive value from the data therein. EDiscovery, security, business intelligence and productivity all become vital components of the day to day use of your enterprise archived data.
We are thrilled Gartner have recognized our industry leading technology, and specifically mention the delight we bring to our customers and their users.
