Smarsh Named a Leader in 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Information Archiving
2022 marks the seventh consecutive year Smarsh has been named a Leader, positioned furthest overall for completeness of vision
PORTLAND, Ore., (January 28, 2022) – Smarsh®, enabling organizations to manage the risk and uncover the value within their digital communications, announced today that analyst firm Gartner has named it a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) for the seventh consecutive year.1
The new Gartner report provides a detailed overview of the EIA market and evaluates vendors on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Smarsh was placed furthest to the right for completeness of vision.
“Hybrid work has ignited an explosion of digital conversations – completely redefining how organizations transform their archive to an elevated communications intelligence strategy,” said Brian Cramer, CEO of Smarsh. “The new normal of remote work can be a huge advantage for employees, but it also creates tremendous regulatory and reputational risk for companies. Once used exclusively for personal communications, social tools are now becoming business tools, but people’s behaviors haven’t changed. As a result, staff are more relaxed about what they say and more likely to break regulatory guidelines.”
“Only Smarsh understands how to address this enormous challenge in a way that protects clients today and in an uncertain future. Investing in the technology and partnerships to collect the broadest range of communication types, analyze it for issues with AI/ML and leverage public cloud ensures we have the scale to process all the rich communications data in real-time, across the globe.” Cramer continued, “Regulations are changing quickly to address these shifts we are experiencing, and our customers are ready.”
