A Magic "Challenger" for Enterprise Information Archiving21 Nov, 2013
Bringing all things together in the cloud and archiving it for instant access is a much needed service indeed. Notably, Mimecast has been recognised by Gartner as a ‘Challenger’ in this year’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving*. Mimecast was a new entrant to the Magic Quadrant last year, and has since invested significantly in product innovation and seen strong customer adoption of its archive solutions. Mimecast is a cloud-based, email archiving, security and continuity provider.
Matthew Ravden, Mimecast Chief Strategy Officer, said: “We have made significant progress over the last year in both product development and customer adoption for our archiving business. Our archiving solutions have extended this year, bringing benefits to IT administrators and compliance officers. It doesn’t stop there. We have also brought the searchable archive to end-users at their desks and, importantly, securely to their mobile devices.”
