Flagship Information Management Software Honored for Consistent Leading-Edge Strategy and the Ability to Scale to Enterprise Demands

SAN JOSE, CA – December 18, 2014 ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), established leaders in unified information governance for large organizations, announced today that their flagship ZL Unified Archive® (ZL UA) platform has won silver in the Best in Biz Awards 2014 for “Most Innovative Product of the Year – Enterprise” category. The annual awards program is judged by an expert panel of press members and analysts, and attracts a vast array of entrant companies both public and private.

The 2014 award is a testament to ZL’s long-term commitment to meeting the demands of enterprise data volumes and maintaining an innovative spirit in forging product capabilities ahead of market demand. For years, ZL UA has been recognized as a visionary solution in the information governance and archiving space, offering enterprise-scale organizations a single repository for the seamless management of unstructured data for multiple, interrelated needs. Unlike most enterprise information management offerings, ZL’s platform has grown organically: using a single code base to build expansive functionality instead of relying on acquisition and precarious integration of existing products. The resulting environment, free from data “silos,” empowers the enterprise to proactively extract value from unstructured business content, as well as comprehensively manage it for the needs of eDiscovery, records management, regulatory compliance, and storage.

Best in Biz Awards 2014, the fourth annual North American iteration of the program, proved to be the most competitive yet with over 550 nominations received, evaluated, and scored. Winners were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 53 judges, hailing from highly-recognized newspapers, businesses, consumer and technology publications, radio outlets, and analyst firms. Given the large variety of industries and capabilities represented by the entrant pool, honors were presented in a wide range of categories that were based on company, executive, team, and product-based strengths.

“True innovation is an indomitable business mentality, not just a colloquialism for new or trendy,” noted Kon Leong, CEO of ZL Technologies. “As a well-established company, we take pride in our tradition of anticipating enterprise needs well ahead of the curve. This award, among others, continues to illustrate the force of our efforts and philosophy.”
