Veritas Technologies has announced that it has been named by Forrester Research as a “Leader” in The Forrester Wave: Information Archiving Cloud Providers, Q4 2016 for its Enterprise Vault cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) archiving solution. The 2016 Information Archiving Wave evaluated 13 vendors on a broad range of criteria including cloud architecture, scalability, security capabilities, user and group management, compliance and eDiscovery, supervision, file access, and data sovereignty support.
In the report, Veritas Enterprise Vault.cloud was recognized as a solution that provides document archiving for Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Exchange messages, as well as “documents from sources such as on-premises SharePoint sites or cloud-based Box.” The report also notes that “additional modules extend the core archiving capabilities, such as the Veritas AdvisorMail product for supervision capabilities, and document review is supported via Veritas eDiscovery.”
“I believe that being a Leader in the Forrester Wave further validates the differentiated solution we have in the marketplace and the value we deliver to our customers,” said Mike Palmer, EVP and Chief Product Officer, Veritas Technologies. “We are uniquely serving the requirements of enterprise customers through the combination of cost-effective retention management, eDiscovery and compliance supervision capabilities, delivered with high performance and scalability.”
