ZL File Analysis and Management's Versatility Highlighted in Gartner Market Guide

ZL Recognized as One of Three Vendors to Support All Major Use Cases

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - November 15, 2016) - ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), the leader in unified information governance and analytics for the large enterprise, has been acknowledged in Gartner's Market Guide for File Analysis Software1 as a solution provider for the four major use cases of file analysis: governance and policy management, risk mitigation, efficiency and optimization, and analytics. The report emphasizes the growing demand to harness uncontrolled data growth, and the need for a scalable file analysis tool that can be used as a component of a company's broader information governance strategy.

Reporting on ZL File Analysis and Management, Gartner concludes: "Sensitive data can be identified via metadata tags, content (key words/phrases) and pattern recognition, such as credit card and Social Security numbers. Data can be tagged, classified and moved to secure environment." Gartner further reports, "ZL has a highly scalable platform with built-in ZL BigDB NoSQL technology. Stale data can be identified and deleted or migrated."

Following its April release, ZL File Analysis and Management debuts at the center of Gartner's use case diagram, one of just three offerings to satisfy all major requirements of today's file analysis initiatives. The need to manage and analyze unstructured data continues to grow -- according to the report, "By 2020, 50% of all midsize and large enterprises will have implemented file analysis for managing unstructured data, up from less than 10% today."

ZL File Analysis and Management differentiates itself through compatibility with all major file sources, and the capability to be used as both a standalone product and within the powerful information governance platform, Unified Archive®. ZL's singular governance architecture enables file analysis insights to dictate ongoing policies, making repeated file share cleanup a thing of the past. The result is more effective life cycle management, more efficient user access, and decreased risk exposure for sensitive files.
