Sonian Positioned in 2011 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving10:21 EST Thursday, December 08, 2011NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 08, 2011) - Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered archiving and search, today announced that it has been positioned in the December 2011 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving(1) by Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT), the world's leading information technology research and advisory company. Sonian, which has been adopted by more than 8,000 organizations globally, enables organizations to address eDiscovery needs, achieve regulatory compliance, and reduce IT costs."We are excited and consider it a great accomplishment to be included in Gartner's Magic Quadrant given how recently we entered the EIA market," said Jeff Dickerson, CEO & President of Sonian. "Having pioneered cloud-powered archiving, we believe this positioning in the Magic Quadrant reaffirms Sonian's traction and growing success in the industry. Clearly our partners and customers are finding compelling value in our solutions. We're very proud of our inclusion in this select group of providers.""The challenges organizations are facing with respect to the management of email data are increasingly being seen with file system data. Archiving products that can address both email and files generally provide efficiencies across these content types, versus taking a siloed approach to management," notes the Magic Quadrant report, which positions vendors based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. "While cloud archiving can be very cost-effective, the prevailing sentiment to simply give the problem of managing this data to someone else seems to be one of the most common reasons organizations cite for selecting cloud or SaaS archiving.""Sonian is a transformational service that challenges the capital-intensive, on-premise models in use today," said Jon Pilkington, Sonian's VP of Marketing and Product Management. "By offering a unified email and file search on the cloud, we believe we are uniquely positioned to help organizations manage all of their archiving needs."(1)Gartner, Inc.
