Micro Focus Named as Leader in File Analytics by Forrester Wave in 2018

Aug 17, 2018 | Micro Focus

The Forrester Wave is an evaluation of vendors in the software, hardware, and services market, conducted by Forrester, a leading global research and advisory firm. The evaluation uses a transparent methodology to compare providers, to equip organisations with the information required to make well-informed vendor selections without having to conduct their own in-depth research. Forrester’s insights are backed by annual surveys of more than 675,000 consumers and business leaders worldwide, and paired with rigorous, objective methodologies.

In Forrester’s Q2 2018 evaluation of file analytics providers, Micro Focus ControlPoint was rated top of its class. The evaluation analysed and scored providers based on 31 separate criterion, naming Micro Focus as one of the 11 most significant providers.

Through data discovery and file analysis capabilities, Micro Focus ControlPoint assists enterprises in reducing risk, creating operational efficiency and empowering better management of data in line with governance and policies. The report states, “Micro Focus provides an intuitive interface and supports rich media. Enterprises can deploy Micro Focus ControlPoint as a standalone or as part of a broader secure content management stack, which includes ECM and structured data management.”

Unknown risks and unutilised business insights lie within unmanaged file shares and storage platforms, awaiting to be analysed and discovered.
