We’re proud to be recognized in Gartner’s “2020 Market Guide for File Analysis Software”, authored by Julian Tirsu and Marc-Antoine Meunier, 6 February 2020.

According to the report: “File analysis software scans, maps and manages unstructured data stores. This enables I&O leaders to make better data management decisions for unstructured data, which in turn reduces risk and lowers costs associated with data.”

Unstructured data, data that is not easily searchable, is inherently risky. With as much as 80% of an organization’s footprint comprised of unstructured data, companies need to understand what data they have, where it’s stored and what it’s comprised of in order to be able to control it. With more data under management than ever-before combined with the proliferation of global data privacy laws, risk-aware organizations are turning to file analysis software to help them with:

  • Risk mitigation
  • Governance and compliance
  • Efficiency and optimization
  • Analytics

As per the report, “Gartner estimates that there are at least 200 vendors in this market. The 20 discussed here are those that most closely match the capabilities considered critical for file analysis tools.”

Per our understanding, the report recommends selecting file analysis software that can scale to handle a complete environment, and prioritize options surrounding unstructured data, which Active Navigation excels at.
