Supporting Quotes

Steven Heller, director of technology, Graubard Miller: eDiscovery is critical to our firm, as attorneys must be able to store and search email records quickly during the legal hold stage at the beginning of the litigation process. We continue to trust Proofpoint Enterprise Archive for our archiving needs and are thrilled with its ability to generate search results in near-real time. New legal hold features will empower our team to track and identify key information faster and easier than ever before.

Andres Kohn, general manager, archiving for Proofpoint: With more and more organizations involved in litigation, and being held to stricter data preservation and increasingly strict compliance standards, we're seeing greatly increased demand for solutions that make it easier to preserve, collect, process and review email. Over the past 12 months, we've seen a doubling in both the number of searches and number of messages managed by Proofpoint Enterprise Archive. This trend is accelerating as we continue to add many new enterprise customers, who typically need to archive data for 10,000 or more inboxes.
