Retain Unified Archiving Awarded, “Best Overall Value” and “Champion” for Content & Email Archiving

Champions within the Info-Tech Content and Email Archive Vendor Landscape receive high scores for most evaluation criteria and offer excellent value. They have a strong market presence and are the trendsetters for the industry. Furthermore, the Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. It does not indicate vendor ranking. Vendors that score high offer more bang-for-the-buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.

On a relative basis, GWAVA maintained the highest Info-Tech Value Score of the vendor group. Vendors were indexed against GWAVA’s performance to provide a complete, relative view of their product offerings.

According to John Sloan, Research Director at Info-Tech, “GWAVA is the most complete product at its price point”. Mr. Sloan further states “Retain provides a wide set of tools that protect information as well as extending discovery to social media, search and mobile devices.” Sloan goes on to say, “GWAVA has the best value for highly regulated enterprises through the best practices information for financial and healthcare.”

“GWAVA is honored to receive this award and recognition from Info-Tech. Retain is the fastest growing and most comprehensive next-generation archiving solution available in the marketplace” said Ken Muir, Chief Executive Officer of GWAVA. “Over 3000 customers in over 65 countries depend on Retain to ensure compliance, govern their information and provide organizational insights.”
