“With the continued evolution of information archiving, the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving is an essential resource for evaluating archiving solutions,” stated Ken Muir, CEO, GWAVA.

Retain provides unified archiving of all business communication including email, social media, and mobile communication data for case assessment, search, and eDiscovery. It can be deployed on-prem or in the cloud. Our customer base consists of highly regulated industries like Government, Education, Healthcare and Financial Services. GWAVA provides solutions that exceed the archiving, compliance, and security demands for these organizations. This is critical to our customers, as many compliance standards and regulations cannot be met with the built in archiving solutions offered by Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, and Gmail.

In addition, Retain provides easy access to the archive for end users, administrators and other named users via the Web Access Archive Viewer, the Offline Viewer and the Retain Archive App. The Retain archive has built-in eDiscovery tools. Administrators, legal, human resources and other authorized users can use these tools to perform essential eDiscovery and regulatory functions. These include: simple or complex searches, placing litigation holds, print, forward, save, redact and export of messages.
