Retarus Moves Up the Quadrant in Radicati's Secure Email Gateway 2019 Report

Recognized as a “Trail Blazer,” Retarus impresses market analysts with its innovative Email Security Services portfolio
Press Release – updated: Nov 8, 2019 11:00 EST

SECAUCUS, N.J., November 8, 2019 (Newswire.com) – In its recent analysis of the Secure Email Gateway market, Radicati Group rated information logistics expert Retarus the “Trail Blazer” with the very best positioning, attributing to its innovation in the Email Security Services portfolio. The only privately managed European organization to land a spot in this competitive report, Retarus has progressed towards the “Top Player” segment from its previous assessment at the beginning of the year. Service providers ranked in this category distinguish themselves mainly through offering innovative technologies and their ability to shape the product landscape.
The report emphasizes how Retarus facilitates enterprise organizations with a multi-faceted range of services to fulfill their mission-critical business requirements. Additionally, Radicati highlights Retarus’ progressive portfolio of Email Security Services and the benefits it offers, including Email Continuity, making it the only privately managed European organization to land a spot in this quadrant.
In Radicati’s analysis, the Email Continuity Services recently launched by Retarus adds significant value for companies looking to implement a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. Since email is the most essential communication channel for enterprises, followed by telephone and fax, it is crucial to avoid outages by all means.
Retarus’ Email Continuity Services enable this seamless flow of communication, even in the event of customer’s email system failures caused by cloud downtimes or data center outages. The service allows the impacted organizations to switch over flexibly and conveniently to a platform running concurrently in the background at all times. In addition, Retarus’ Email Continuity Services fulfill all key criteria to enable successful disaster protection.
Eradicating the need for companies to spend a lot of time and effort starting up their own back-up email systems, Retarus allows the services to run independently of the technology utilized by the company, for instance, Microsoft Exchange. Retarus offers this feature to companies of all sizes, and 120,000 users from an organization recently benefited from connecting to the system as part of a pilot program.
With its patented Postdelivery Protection service “Patient Zero Detection”®, according to Radicati, Retarus E-Mail Security has achieved an additional security dimension, which successfully protects users from being harmed by malware in emails that have already been delivered to their inboxes. Patient Zero Detection® Real-Time Response processes threats and enables emails infected with malware that have been detected within the company’s infrastructure to be deleted automatically or moved to a special folder for further analysis.
The experts at Radicati also draw attention to the web-based Enterprise Administration Services portal, which provides Retarus’ customers with an opportunity to configure their own services more efficiently. Furthermore, Retarus offers a real-time search option “Email Live Search” including analysis and IT forensics functions, which the analysts describe as efficient and easy to use. Within the scope of this service, for instance, Retarus makes forensic data available in real-time for the customer’s SIEM processes (Security Information and Event Management).
Additional features offered by Retarus Email Security Services, such as Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with Sandboxing, Deferred Delivery Scan, Time-of-Click Protection (URL-Rewriting) and CxO Fraud Protection (Anti-Spoofing and Anti-Spear-Phishing), as well as flexible access management and encryption, have already received recognition by Radicati in their previous report.
“Our positioning in the top right corner of Radicati‘s ‘Trail Blazer’ quadrant, near to the ‘Top-Player’ segment, is a clear affirmation of our email security strategy,” says Martin Hager, founder and CEO at Retarus. “Retarus is the only European and owner-led company with a multi-dimensional approach for corporations and huge, multinational companies providing users with optimum protection from email threats – in combination with compliance features, user-friendliness and sensible integration into eco-systems. This excellent positioning will spur us on to continue augmenting our services with additional functions that provide companies with real added value.”

M-Files Recognized as a Visionary in 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms

2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms

“We believe our recognition by Gartner as a Visionary is a reflection of our unparalleled commitment to delivering high value solutions for our customers and partners that offer flexibility and differentiation in the marketplace,” said Miika Mäkitalo, CEO at M-Files.

DALLAS (PRWEB) November 04, 2019
M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced that the company has been recognized as a Visionary in Gartner, Inc.’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms. Gartner named M-Files as a Visionary based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute, against the backdrop of an evolving content services platforms market.
More open, unified and intelligent content services platforms continue to replace traditional, siloed document management and enterprise content management systems. Today’s leading enterprises are driving the demand for content services platforms that provide their own repository but also support accessing and managing information in other systems.
The M-Files intelligent, repository neutral platform utilizes metadata and artificial intelligence (AI) to break down silos and unify data and content in network folders, SharePoint, file sharing services and other business systems and repositories across the organization. This provides immediate access to existing information on day one, without requiring data migration. Additionally, M-Files seamlessly embeds within popular digital workplace platforms, including Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce and Google G Suite, allowing users to remain focused on the task at hand in the applications where they spend most of their day.
“We believe our recognition by Gartner as a Visionary is a reflection of our unparalleled commitment to delivering high value solutions for our customers and partners that offer flexibility and differentiation in the marketplace,” said Miika Mäkitalo, CEO at M-Files. “Today’s most innovative companies are readily embracing our unique intelligent information management approach that allows them to access all relevant data in the right context, regardless of where it’s stored. Our ability to offer modern, AI-powered information management in the cloud and on-premises with one license truly sets us apart. We also feel Gartner’s recognition inspires passion to continue delivering innovations that are changing the way the world manages information.”
According to Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms, “The shift in users’ expectations of, and new preference for, the cloud has motivated the long-standing vendors to modernize. Those vendors now provide either new SaaS platforms or have rearchitected existing offerings to be more flexible and adaptive.”
M-Files has offered both SaaS and on-premises options for over ten years and continues to modernize the offering with new emerging technologies, such as micro-services based architecture and containerization. The unique M-Files Online solution allows customers to manage both cloud and on-premises repositories in the same subscription without having to purchase licenses separately for both deployment options. This gives M-Files customers flexibility to modernize their information management with cloud services where it makes sense, while leaving the option to store some data behind their own firewalls.
Gartner states, “Buyers’ needs require more agile, adaptive solutions, which are very different to the rigid, on-premises and monolithic solutions of old.” Gartner continues, “Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, including machine learning (ML) and deep neural networks, have enabled innovations for classification, productivity and automation scenarios. Such capabilities should be embedded in all key areas of the platform, from security to collaboration, to align with the evolving expectations of the market.”
M-Files employs artificial intelligence to automatically analyze and classify documents, extract insights and ensure proper handling of sensitive information, such as personally identifiable information (PII). AI-powered features, such as auto-tagging and auto-classification infer the meaning, value and sensitivity of documents and other information to establish context. The M-Files Intelligent Metadata Layer (IML) uses AI to bring disconnected data silos together and simplify the user experience without disturbing existing systems and processes. With M-Files IML, information is unified across different sources based on context, not on the system or folder in which the information is stored. This allows users to find, access and manage information in all connected systems and repositories, all from a single view within the M-Files user interface. M-Files continues its rapid growth trajectory, with over 70 percent year-over-year growth in recurring revenue in the cloud in 2018, and a compound growth rate of more than 3,000 percent over the last ten years.
