Mimecast listed as highest market share growth archiving vendor in new leading analyst firm report
Mimecast®, an enterprise email management company offering SaaS-based email security, continuity, policy control and archiving, today announced that the company has achieved an 80% year-over-year growth rate, as noted by the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner Inc., in its latest report titled “Market Trends: E-Mail Archiving Strong Growth Continues,” published October 6, 2010, authored by Alan Dayley and Sheila Childs. The report examines performance between 2008 and 2009 and shows that growth in email archiving slowed from 25.7% in 2008 to 13.2% in 2009. At 80%, Mimecast’s growth outpaces that of its nearest competitors in North America.
This finding follows Gartner’s recent report, “Market Trends: Archiving Software Experiences Strong Growth as Customers Archive More Than Just E-Mail,” published also published by Alan Dayley and Sheila Childs on September 27, 2010 which found that “archiving is the fastest-growing segment of storage management software, projected to grow 22.2% through 2014.” The report also found that “email archiving, the largest archiving revenue segment, is forecasted to be the second-fastest-growing subsegment, with a 23.0% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR), and will continue to be driven by compliance and e-discovery.” Further, the report found that “cloud-based archiving solutions are gaining traction and account for 25.3% of the overall archiving software market revenue.” These forecasts represent a significant opportunity for Mimecast’s continued growth.
