Netwrix recognized in 2020 Gartner Market Guide for File Analysis Software

The updated report aims to “enable I&O leaders to make better data management decisions for unstructured data which in turn reduces risk and lower costs associated with data.”

Netwrix, a vendor of information security and governance software, has been recognized by Gartner as a “Representative Vendor” in its 2020 Market Guide for File Analysis Software.

The guide notes that “While organizations are expanding the scope of needs and opportunities associated with their unstructured data, the primary use cases for file analysis include, but are not limited to, risk mitigation, governance/policy management, efficiency/optimization and analytics.” Gartner predicts that “through 2024 80% of information governance programs that do not include unstructured, semistructured and structured data into the same governance program will fail, up from 30% today.”

Governance and compliance of unstructured data are virtually impossible without a clear understanding and mapping of the various data repositories, which is provided through file analysis. File analysis also allows for the classification of valuable business data so that it can be more easily found and leveraged, as well as supporting e-discovery, data migration and analytics.

We are thrilled to be mentioned as a Representative Vendor in the file analysis market by Gartner. Netwrix has been growing for more than 10 years and matured into a vendor that is able to address challenges associated with risk mitigation, governance and compliance, efficiency and optimization. We think Gartner’s evaluation of the file analysis market is consistent with what Netwrix can offer to its customers to address their information security and governance needs.
