Netwrix is recognized as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for File Analysis Market

The distinction is based on feedback from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service.

Netwrix, a vendor that makes data security easy, is excited to share that they were named a Customers’ Choice in the June 2020 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: File Analysis Software. Gartner defines the File Analysis Software (FA) as products that analyze, index, search, track and report on file metadata and file content, enabling organizations to take action on files according to what was identified. FA provides detailed metadata and contextual information to enable better information governance and organizational efficiency for unstructured data management. FA is an emerging solution, made of disparate technologies, that assists organizations in understanding the ever-growing volume of unstructured data, including file shares, email databases, enterprise file sync and share, records management, enterprise content management, Microsoft SharePoint and data archives.*

The Netwrix solution empowers organizations to identify sensitive, regulated and mission-critical information and apply access controls, regardless of where the information is stored. It enables them to minimize the risk of data breaches and ensure regulatory compliance by reducing the exposure of sensitive data and detecting policy violations and suspicious user behavior.
