Sonian Rises to the "Challengers" Quadrant of the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

NEWTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Sonian, the pioneer in cloud-powered email archiving and search, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Challengers Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving, 2012.(i)

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) is based on an assessment of a company's ability to execute and completeness of vision. Challengers are also credited with having the financial and market resources and capabilities to become leaders.

"The interest in archiving data using a cloud or SaaS solution has intensified. 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 archiving," states the Magic Quadrant report, which notes challengers for their ability to execute and products that perform well for many businesses. "Cloud archiving is attractive to organizations of all sizes."

In January 2012, Sonian acquired Webroot's email archiving business. This strategic acquisition was followed by the company's opening of a European headquarters in the United Kingdom to support its fast growing base of customers and prospects throughout the region. In May 2012, Sonian announced that it had secured more than $13 million in Series C funding, led by OpenView Venture Partners and joined by existing investors Summerhill Venture Partners and Prism VentureWorks. The investment -- which marks nearly $27 million to date -- is being used to scale sales and marketing while accelerating product development. The company also sealed several notable partnerships with some of the world's leading technology companies -- Rackspace, MindSHIFT, Excel Micro, and Apptix -- considerably increasing availability of its products throughout the market.

Notably, in November 2011, Sonian introduced the industry's first cloud archiving support for files with Sonian File Archiving, helping customers retain an ever-increasing volume of file data by offloading static documents to secure, cost-effective cloud storage. In addition to the same powerful search, discovery, and compliance capabilities as Sonian's cloud-powered Email Archive, the file archiving capabilities add online file preview, full-text indexing for more than 450 file types, and scalability to support the world's largest file stores.

"We believe Gartner's thorough evaluation and subsequent placement of Sonian in the Challengers Quadrant is a tremendous affirmation of our vision, ability to execute, and best-in-class and expanding product portfolio," said Jeff Dickerson, CEO of Sonian. "As data volumes continue to grow exponentially, the ability to capitalize on big data has taken center stage. Organizations of all sizes are trying to keep in lockstep with archiving this data efficiently, safely and cost effectively while also meeting compliance and eDiscovery requirements. Managing more than 2 petabytes of data and expanding by 75 terabytes every month, Sonian's cloud-based email archiving and search platform is the solution of choice for more than 11,000 customers, spanning virtually all industries. We thank our customers and partners for their support and look forward to working closely together in the years ahead."

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
