ZL Unified Archive® Earns Leading Distinction with Emphasis on Advanced Functionality and Proven Performance in Extremely Large Deployments

SAN JOSE, CA – Nov. 6, 2013 ZL Technologies, Inc., the foremost provider of unified archiving, records management, compliance, eDiscovery, and storage software for the large enterprise, has announced its official placement in the Leaders category of the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving. With the Leaders distinction in the Magic Quadrant (MQ), ZL Technologies is recognized by Gartner, Inc. for demonstrating the highest possible combination of completeness of vision and ability to execute, resulting in services which are both technologically proven and forward-thinking.

In particular, Gartner cited ZL for performance in large-scale deployments, in-depth functionality across a vast array of data types, and commitment to client needs.

The ZL Unified Archive® (ZL UA) flagship product has long established a track record of unparalleled information governance performance for the largest and most demanding of customers. Grid-based architecture, built specifically to meet the unstructured data volumes of the Fortune 500, offers an elastic and immensely scalable platform in which all information management needs can be handled in a single data environment, while maintaining single data copies. This revolutionary approach eliminates unwieldy data “silos” and duplicate data, allowing for high-powered global search capabilities and the ability to leverage data simultaneously for multiple interrelated needs. The result is a seamless, singular product in which all of the demands of archiving, global search, regulatory compliance, eDiscovery, records management, and other needs can be met without shuffling data between disparate systems.

“Placement as Leader speaks loudly for our 15-year history of providing best-in-breed unstructured data archiving,” said Kon Leong, CEO of ZL Technologies. “But to focus on archiving alone misses the big picture. In a world frenzied with Big Data and analytics, the enterprise is quickly realizing that information is useless if it hasn’t been rigorously governed throughout its lifecycle. To meet this engineering challenge of managing tens of billions of documents from cradle to grave, ZL UA was designed organically from inception with a single DNA, if you will, rather than awkwardly expanded via cobbled product acquisitions,” noted Leong.
